CHOCOLATE STOUT WEDDING CAKEEach layer of the chocolate nude cake by Wendy Kromer- Schell and Caitlin Brown drizzled with chocolate and caramel ganache is filled with buttercream, and topped with candied pecans. Meanwhile, the actual cake includes butter, yogurt, and stout (customize yours with your favorite brew), making each bite decadently damp.
A WEDDING CAKE WITH DIFFERENT STRIPESHere, we place the thought of icing on ice, relying instead on unadorned pastel layers for graphical appeal. Coconut pound cake, tinted with gel-paste food coloring, serves as the base, while white fondant and passion-fruit curd rests on top (the curd can be between each layer).
ART DECO WEDDING CAKEThe layouts on this particular cake hark back to another time—when sandals were music was for dancing, and jewelry took a jump into the near future. However, you don't need to understand your Art Deco to admire its style that is geometric. Covered in piped dots of frosting buttercream, and cut-fondant plaques coated with sanding sugar, it is just plain pretty, irrespective of what way you slice it.
OMBRE WEDDING CAKEWendy Kromer- Caitlin Brown hid blood-orange and Schell and passion-fruit curds in tinted vanilla poundcake because of this buttercream-dotted confection. Bake yours a bit bigger than desired that browned edges might be trimmed off, showing the vibrant ombre layout underneath.
HEART WEDDING CAKEThe heart was believed to function as origin of most human emotions. Though modern science demonstrates otherwise, the phrase "giving your heart" remains the easiest way to express that you simply had sacrifice anything for the one you adore. Jay Qualls of the Tennessee-based Maples Wedding Cakes printed our designs on paper, covered them in parchment, outlined them then transferred them.
POTTED PLANT WEDDING CAKEContributing editor Jason Schreiber made this herb-adorned cake, which features micro marigolds, cilantro and fennel blossoms, bachelor's buttons, sweet alyssums, oregano, and pea shoots. Swiss meringue buttercream's tacky feel kept the edible blossoms (purchase your own at gourmetsweetbotanicals.com) in place.
JAPANESE SPONGE WEDDING CAKEThese little beauties by Wendy Kromer-Schell and Caitlin Brown (known as individual sponge roulades) were inspired by Japan's popular patterned cake rolls. The fill is lemon-ginger mousse, as well as the designs could be customized (wedding crest or monogram, anyone?).
