Finishing the week of cakes, here are more cakes that I long to eat. There's no theme, these are just cakes that I thought were especially beautiful.
A steampunk wedding cake
To me, this steampunk obsession came out of left field, but I thoroughly embrace the trend. Everything about it is so beautiful and metal-y! This cake is no exception. I'm amazed at the metallic colors and precision of the gears.
A Scrabble cake with a cute backstory.
The bride and groom used to play together over the internet while the groom was stationed in Iraq. Aw! Even without the story, it's gorgeous! I love the colors, the wood-effect on the tiles, and the crazy Scrabble tiles bouncing off the edges.
No week-of-cakes from me would be complete without a Tim Burton wedding cake.
I wonder if Tim Burton has inspired more tattoos or weddings? Who cares, his work is always visually stunning. This is the same baker who made the Scrabble cake above. Normally, I think the uneven tiers are overused, but it's perfect here. I like the airbrushing mixed with the hard edges of fondant, and they've used the crazy-things-bouncing-off-the-cake effect here too with blue butterflies and dragonflies. It's almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
And now I have a bad case of cake blue balls. I WANT CAKE SO MUCH. I know exactly how this cat feels:
Have a sugary weekend!
