Wedding Cake of the Day:
Jaipur Elephant


Indian weddings are always an incredibly festive affair, and are usually complemented by similarly exuberant wedding details, such as this amazing elephant groom's cake by Heather Barranco Dreamcakes. The New York City baker was inspired by a family trip to Jaipur and modeled the decorations after traditional Indian patterns and color schemes. Here, the elephant is carrying a stack of luggage, signifying the groom's rite of passage to the next phase of his life—marriage.
