Cakes, Chicago

Courtesy of The Sugar Syndicate

I am totally loving this clean and modern cake design by The Sugar Syndicate in Chicago. I'm usually inundated with floral or scroll work cakes, so this one, which features the couple's names, is a bit more unusual and definitely stands out. You don't see fondant lettering very often, probably because it's incredibly labor-intensive: Cake designer Cathay Rayhill meticulously cuts each letter from colored fondant by hand. The result is a crisp and clean, and the fondant branch and leaf motif gives it a "mod" feel. To see more modern-looking cakes, visit our cake gallery here. —Heather Lee, Editor, Brides Chicago
