And the icing-capped mountains are white...

A talented cake designer can turn even a small inspiration into a grand cake--and a "theme," as much as I tend to loathe the word, can actually be a very smart and easy way to get the creativity flowing.

In Colorado, the stunning mountain scenery is understandably a favorite go-to inspiration for wedding decor, so I've seen my fair share of nature-themed wedding cakes. But I particularly love this one, recently sent to me by Marci Perrotto, of Colorado Rose Cake Company. "Our new all-white mountain scene has been our most popular design this year, since so many of our cakes are for weddings in the Estes Park area," says Marci. Adding a few pine cones and pine tree boughs help drive the point home. —Lauren Matthews, editor, Brides Colorado
