Just because a wedding cake is the last course doesn’t mean it shouldn’t have our FULL attention! This year’s cake trends are going back to basics with unique subtlety’s that demand the spotlight. We are so excited to feature Philadelphia’s finest wedding cake designers, Whipped BakeshopVelvet Sky Bakery, and Sweet T’s Bake Shop at #LoveIsInTheAir2015, at The Horticulture Center in Philadelphia, PA. Here are some classic styles with a twist that are taking center stage this year.

This cake by Whipped Bakeshop may be small in size but not in style! Metallic accents are a huge hit this year in the wedding cake world.

This beauty by Velvet Sky Bakery hits on a few of 2015’s wedding trends. We love the contrast of the ruffled flowers and the smooth silver.

This beauty from Sweet T’s Bakeshop uses geometric laser-cut shapes which are reminiscent of lace. So sweet ;)!

I am always seeking the most amazing wedding cake and the pastry chefs who can create them. The ability to make an amazing looking cake that tastes delicious is an art. There are few that can manage that task.

As I travel abroad, I always snap images from windows. I like how the images portray the cake with the ghosted images of the surrounding buildings. These cakes were in a shop window in London.

The last cake belonged to a birthday girl (client). I commissioned Rachel Mount to create a “London” cake. It was simply stunning.
