White "Honeycomb" Wedding Cake

Whether you're marrying in a lush garden or on the lawn of a sprawling estate, this elegant wedding cake belongs outdoors. Created by the Wild Orchid Baking Company in New Hampshire, the design features a subtle honeycomb pattern pressed into smooth fondant. The middle tier is embellished with a fondant honey bee that's been brushed with edible gold, and two gumpaste magnolias—a honey bee's favorite bloom during the spring and summer months—adorn the top and bottom tiers.
