We know how important it is to have a cake at every event. Choosing the right one can be tricky though, especially as bakers get every more technical and experimental with their creations. From fondants and wafer-paper techniques, to cakes that defy gravity; we’ve gathered some of the most inventive ones out there.

Simplicity is key

For a quaint wedding surrounded with your closest friends and dearest family, the simplicity of this cake will definitely be the centre of attention. Just look at how the flowers are almost too real to eat, and notice how the surface of the cake is surrounded by the most elegant white embroidery.

Defying gravity

This one’s great for you Maltesers fanatics out there. Don’t you just want to display it and never eat it because it looks too good to slice through?

Australian artistry

We love how from a certain angle, a tree of flowers appear. The detailing of the branch itself is eye catching, you can tell a lot of time and precision has been put into this cake.

Wafer-paper cake

Since edible paper has been trending for the longest time now, why not incorporate it into a cake? The variety of patterns gives an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ feel to the one below.

Tropical tiers

How in the world did they get those patterns onto the cake so accurately? This definitely steers away from your traditional round, tiered wedding cake.

Pretty in pink

We love how vibrant and striking this cakes looks with the use of the pink and gold tones, paired with incredible hand-crafted edible flowers.

Light layers

For starters, you would not think this was a cake at all! It’s almost as if it belonged to a mermaid and came straight out of the ocean. The layers look incredibly light and floaty, and the mix of pink and white gives it an elegant tone.

Black and yellow

Another unconventional cake for weddings. Black and gold go so well together that this talented baker decided to put that combination on a cake. Exquisite!
