Wedding Cake of the Day:
Modern Orchids

If you're incorporating phalaenopsis orchids into your wedding décor (like Kristen and Scott, today's featured couple, did) it's a nice idea to ask your baker to use the blooms in your wedding cake design, too, for a fully coordinated look. This sophisticated cake by UK-based Peggy Porschen combines sleek square tiers and an opulent display of sculptural white phalaenopsis orchids, all fashioned from sugar.

Check out more modern wedding cakes in our Cakes Gallery and find a wedding cake designer near you in our local vendor listings.

If you have a wedding cake you'd like to submit for the blog, please email photos and a brief description to Heather Lee at
