If you’re lucky enough to be holding your wedding in one of Northern California’s architectural gems, reflect its design elements in your cake. Not a cheesy mini replica of your site, but a beautiful and elegant interpretation like the one Shinmin Li of I Dream of Cake, 415-989-2253, idreamofcake.com, created for Karl Peterson and Holly Jacobson’s winter wedding at the deYoung Museum. "We added the little copper dots running along the cake as a subtle nod to the beautiful perforated copper wall at the deYoung," says Li. The white chocolate–covered cake’s intricate floral design was then painted various shades of bronze and copper. This masterpiece took over 60 hours to complete. Cost per slice: $25.
