Today? No sculpting. Just beautiful cakes-that-look-like cakes, plus gorgeous sugar flowers.
LET'S DO THIS.

Those soft ombré ruffles are like a dream vacation for my eyes. Ahhhh. And isn't it amazing how that one sugar branch makes the whole cake?
I love how the lilies pop on this monochromatic number:

Like a line drawing come to life!
I've seen wedding cakes modeled after the bride's gown, but here's a first for me: one that matches the Flower Girl!
(By HapiCakes, now renamed Hazel Wong Cake Design)
Ah! So perfect!
The baker calls this next one "coffee and cream":
Fantastic brush embroidery on the flowers, and those soft ruffles & flower sprays are putting the "chic" in "shabby chic."
Or, for a more modern look:

If this were an art exhibit I'd call it, "Flower, Deconstructed." So cool!
And if you really want to amp up the drama:
It doesn't get more timeless than this! Wowza.
Most sugar flowers are technically edible, but of course you wouldn't really WANT to eat them.
Buttercream flowers, on the other hand?
(By Arty Cakes)
Delicious *and* delightful.
Here's another cool design: the bottom tier looks like one giant flower:
Or maybe more like four giant flowers, put together. Whichever, I LIKE.
And these bright colors & little corkscrew vines = instant summertime fun.
Looking at this, I almost don't mind that it's still 93 degrees outside. Almost.
And this cool blue beauty has a retro flair to it that I'm really digging:
Really love the modern shapes to the tiers, though, which complement each other beautifully.
And finally, a pastel rainbow so stunning I had to look three times to make sure they weren't real flowers:
Mmmmm. Rainbowy flower goodness. And the quilting! And gold leaf stripes! Definitely my happy place for the day.
Hope you guys found some happy here, too! Happy Sunday!
