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 from Ceri Olofson of Olofson Design, an amazing bespoke cake boutique based in London. Channeling the decadence of the era of Marie Antoinette, the cake features sugarpaste swags and pearls, as well as quilting and hand-piped royal icing. Each tier was designed differently and drew inspiration from a variety of sources. "The top tier was inspired by an arched doorway at the Palace of Versailles," says Ceri. The intricate details were hand-painted using edible gold and blush-pink luster dust, while fresh flowers added vibrancy and extra depth to the tiers.
