I had a blast celebrating Bridal Fashion Week at the Brides White Hot Style Shop this past weekend feasting my eyes on these beautiful wedding cakes! I met with some of the decorators, who share some of their tips and techniques below.
- One Girl Cookies by Francina Stewart
The only buttercream cake in the bunch! I love that the bright ribbon was actually piped onto the cake.
- Sweet Element by Jennifer Roberts
This violet-hued cake was a show stopper! Glistening luster dusted gumpaste sequins sparkled with luster dust.
- Baked Ideas by Patti Paige
Patti used royal icing and a tiny tip to pipe crazy detailed designs on each cookie. She says she got the idea for the diamond shaped cookies from a pattern on one of her favorite vintage coin purses.
- Mali B Sweets by Miche Bacher and Nanao Anton
A very feminine and detailed cake. This rococo beauty was decorated from head to toe in flowers and feathers.
- Baked By Melissa provided a typographic display of mini cupcakes: pink cupcakes and ivory cupcakes topped with matching frosting.
- Lovely Cakes by Renata Papadopoulos
I love this classic beauty! Renata used a hydrangea cutter and veiner to create the flowers. She says the flowers were made with fondant and tylose powder… an easy alternative to using gumpaste!
- Eat Cake Be Merry by Liz Shim
Cakes by Liz are always so simple, clean, and beautiful. I always use her cakes for inspiration when I’m trying to make clean lines. Here’s a handy tip from Liz: she cut her chevron decoration and let it rest to harden a bit to have some control when applying it to her cake.
- Bijoux Doux by Ellen Baumwoll
I love luster dust, because I think metallic accents on a cake are gorgeous. This entire cake has the Midas touch. It’s a beautiful champagne gold, decorated with gold leaves.
- City Sweets Confections by Deborah Lauren
Regal and royal, this cake was larger than life. The barrel tier was pressed with a bold floral pattern and bordered with ivory leaves.
- BMQ Desserts|Cakes by Rodolfo Goncalves
This cake took a lot of intensive cake architecture. This giant fashionable statement flower defies gravity! Rodolfo says he made the round mosaic-like embellishments by cutting out circles in fondant with a pastry tip. He then painted each one individually.

Each cake sat perched atop a beautiful, bright colored cake stand from Sarah’s Stands. (I love these!!)
