Bride-Tested, Editor-Approved

A lot of the intricate details that you’re drawn to on gorgeous cakes are often, tastewise, less than expected. Esther and Erik weren’t willing to compromise taste or presentation, so they hired Heidelberg Bakery in Laguna Hills, 949-581-7060, heidelbergbakery.net. The couple chose this rolled white chocolate and raspberry design because they loved the clean lines, playful, fresh raspberry accents and overall organic feel. As for the taste, the baker kept it simple and fresh: Two tiers have white cake with strawberries and cream, and one tier has carrot cake. "We received so many compliments on how delicious it was. We can’t wait to eat it again on our anniversary!" says the bride.
