Modern Ruffled Wedding Cake

This wedding cake comes to us from Erica OBrien Cake Design in Hamden, CT (she was formerly based in Southern California). The clean, crisp cake tiers are covered ivory fondant and piped with pale-gray icing along the top; the bottom of the tiers are wrapped with a silver satin ribbon. The textured ruffles on the center tier are created from fondant and add a whimsical focal point to the cake. We could imagine this wedding cake being displayed in a rustic setting, such as an elegant barn or romantic ranch, don't you think?
