When it comes to narrowing down my favorite detail to feature, a creative wedding cake would have to top the list! I’m celebrating with some of the most stylish, delicious, and too-pretty-to-eat wedding cake designs from features this year!
This stunning sweet showcased the unofficial color of the year – Marigold Yellow! This lovely shade completely won me over, in large part to this unbelievable cake. Tiers of textured buttercream became a unique and lovely color palette thanks to the pairing of yellow frosting with peach and lilac flowers! The candied orange slices added an extra sweet touch!

Cakes these days are truly more a work of art than just a dessert – as illustrated by this incredible ruffled confection! The gilded edges were the perfect finishing touch to this icy blue and navy cake.
When a single photo causes this much stir on Instagram, it’s a shoo-in for this round up! The handmade popsicle stick backdrop set off this gorgeous dessert display – the subtle texture on the white cake was the perfect counterpoint to a cohesive and visually stunning spread!

Gemstone and geode cakes were on trend this year, but I adore how this sweet cake ran with that idea in a totally new direction! Clustered crystals like rock candy added a hint of organic sparkle to this buttercream cake.
Intimate weddings and elopements have become a new normal, meaning cakes for two are on the rise! This beautifully detailed dusty blue buttercream cake demonstrates the punch a single layer can bring!

This regal wedding rang a lot of bells this year, but this royal purple and gold cake deserves a spotlight all its own! The incredible stained glass pattern and sculptural flower topper became a focal point to an already stunningly styled wedding!
Lovers of color, this one is for you! Watercolor brushed frosting, a spray of sugar flowers, and patterned medallions turned this cake into a work of modern art!
Picking one detail from this incredibly creative wedding would have been impossible, but this cake deserves a special mention! The bride herself planned every detail, from the white drip frosting, the fresh flowers and dried figs, and the touches of gold leaf and macarons!

Not one, buy FIVE artful cakes created a romantic spring array for this rainy day shoot, and each one is a stunning gem. From colorful frosting, on-trend drizzle, and brushed petals, each one showcases unique and creative sugar skills!
This is fall perfection in a cake, right here! The subtle natural gold palette from fresh fruit and flowers added to the baked tones of a nearly naked cake topped with a frosting drizzle.
Celestial designs are a personal weakness, and this lovely square cake paired a stardust shimmer with marble inspired carvings that is as heavenly as it gets!

Cakes are like painted canvases you can eat, and that has never been more true than this masterpiece! The brushed tier makes a grand statement despite its petite size, thanks to a vibrant palette and crown of flowers!
If earthy and organic is more your speed, this lovely sweet uses fresh berries and pears along with barely tinted naked buttercream to make an elegant statement!
This cake is the perfect example of all the elements coming together in lovely unity – the dusty mauve backdrop makes the white cake pop, and the gold stand and fresh flowers are all the adornments needed!
