Throwing a nautical wedding? Then check out this charming wedding cake by Sweet Lisa's, located in Greenwich, CT. The buttercream-frosted tiers are decorated with tiny navy-blue anchors cut from fondant; each tier is also accented with edible "rope" made from twisting two strands of fondant together. The whimsical cake topper is a great DIY touch: an easy-to-make pennant banner written with the couple's initials! This sweet confection would be the perfect addition to a waterside wedding held at a yacht club or by the beach.
