White Wedding Cake with Rainbow Sugar Flowers

How chic is this rainbow wedding cake? I always love a good rainbow cake, but most of the multicolor designs I've seen are on the more casual and whimsical side. But this design—created by pastry chef Anne Heap of Pink Cake Box in New Jersey—is utterly elegant. The four cake tiers are covered in simple white fondant, them decorated with a ruffly cascade of handmade sugar flowers, all meticulously painted in varying shades of the rainbow. I love the versatility of this cake design, which would look equally at home in a glamorous hotel ballroom or a minimalist raw space.
