crochet style cake

How much do you love the cake table set up above? I feel like designing a wedding cake can be a bit trying at times. You want to have some type of detailing on the cake, but not to the point where you have 1,000 sugar flowers cascading everywhere. I admire how the tiered cake above is quite simple, but still has a lovely retro feel to it courtesy of the delicate layer of lace around each base and amazing paper background. Oh, and her groom cakes are pretty awesome too…just saying.

I love the upside down drawer for the cake stand. That is just lovely.

I agree. Cakes are tough. I’ve been struggling with mine for quite some time now but really like the one above. Very nice.

Thanks for sharing this cake! Molly–The detail is all real icing. Talk about dedication! The cakes all sat on delicate scalloped tissue paper, too–they were even better in person. :) Kristen Klassen in Seattle made the cake–if anyone needs her contact info, please contact me. I’d be happy to share it!

This cake has really delicate details. I consider a cake must not have such complicated details at all. The cake looks fantastic and it’s elegant as well. Definitely a good option to get in a count for weddings.
