This week's wedding cake is from Superfine Bakery, based in Studio City, Calif. Cake designer Andrea Boudewijn spotted an elegant trumpet-shaped bowl at a local floral shop, and was inspired to turn it into a creative cake stand. The confection sits atop a perfectly sized piece of plexiglass that's been covered in fondant; Andrea replicated the bowl's pattern by handpainting birds and branches on the cake tiers and fashioning three-dimensional berries from marzipan. —Heather Lee
