Wedding Cake of the Day:
Bold Nautical

Maybe this nautical-themed wedding cake is a little too literal, but I do love its boldness. The oversize anchor is totally in-your-face (in a good way!) and the gumpaste rope detail is the perfect touch (though I could probably do without the sugar flower). And I like how the white anchor is set against a backdrop of navy fondant—you don't see dark-colored fondant used very often and I happen to love the look!
