Brides' editor Heather Lee handpicks her favorite wedding cakes, from three-tiered homemade creations to glam, couture-inspired confections.
This wedding cake comes to us all the way from the United Kingdom. Pastry chef Helen Mansey, owner of Bellissimo Cakes, in Liss, sent over this elegant white-and-silver wedding cake. The embellishments on the tiers were inspired by a lace wedding gown; Helen used hand-piping and brush embroidery techniques to replicate the look. For a unique twist, she decided to give the cake a silver middle tier. To finish off the confection, she appliquéd hand-sculpted sugar peonies and Lily of the Valley to each tier.
