Top bakers dream up amazing wedding cake designs for Kate and Will's royal wedding.

This six-tier cake is covered with cascading sugar flowers, including English roses (the British national flower), myrtle (in a tradition started by Queen Victoria, royal brides carry a sprig of myrtle in their bouquets), and lily of the valley. The white fondant tiers are "brush embroidered" (a hand-painting technique in which intricate designs are piped on with royal icing then smudged with a wet brush) with a daffodil and scroll design.
