Make My Cake
A talented designer can turn a small inspiration into a grand cake—as evidenced by this example created by Brad High of Gateaux Pastries, 303-376-0070, gateauxpastries.com, in Denver. A "theme," as much as we loathe the word, is actually a very smart and easy way to get the creativity flowing. Brad scattered brightly colored fondant butterflies on this three-tiered cake to complement the couple’s reception venue: the Butterfly Pavilion in Westminster. The topper of "floating" butterflies was attached to the cake with thin wires. Cost: $6 per slice.
