Modern Silhouette Wedding Cake

Silhouettes are a popular wedding motif but usually imply a vintage theme. Which is why I love this fresh, modern take on the silhouette by New York City bakery Eat Cake Be Merry. The hand-cut gumpaste silhouette of the bride and groom is playful and full of personality; paired with a bright red heart, it's the perfect topper for this crisp two-tier cake. As for the rest of the cake decor: the two square tiers are covered in fondant and Swiss dot piping, then decorated with an edible black-and-white gumpaste banner.
