Dessert designer to the stars, Sylvia Weinstock creates jaw-droppingly gorgeous cakes embellished in the most stunning sugar flowers. She only uses buttercream to frost her confections (not fondant), so air-conditioning is a must to ensure it won't melt.

Emily Aumiller of Lael Cakes proves that vegan and gluten-free confections can taste (and look!) delicious. Her beautiful wedding cakes are made using alternative flours like millet, tapioca, and brown rice, and she makes her food-coloring dyes from scratch (her red-velvet cake gets its color from fresh beet juice!).
