Entitled "Crystal Elegance," this seven-tier wedding cake is coated in white fondant and dusted with edible lavender sparkle dust from Amazing Cakes by Joanne. This gorgeous cake is adorned with glittering crystals and hand-crafted butterflies.
cakelava: Kailua, Hawaii
Known for their attention to detail and ability to amaze, cakelava sculpted this 5.5-feet-tall cake, which included a rhinestone-studded cake stand. The devil is in the details with this cake, which relies on subtle design and a clean palate rather than showy colors to amaze.
Sugar Flower Cake Shop: New York City
This towering Victorian beauty has a regal, vintage air about it that is only enhanced by its size. This cake stands more than 5 feet tall and was created by the Sugar Flower Cake Shop, which makes wedding and special-occasion cakes from organic, local, sustainable, and/or fair-trade ingredients.
cakelava: Kailua, Hawaii
Talk about grandiose: this overpoweringly beautiful cake stands at a whopping 6 feet tall. The creators took special care to turn the big love of the couple into a big sugary confection that resembles beautifully stacked (and artfully blinged-out) presents.
Haute So Sweet: New York City
Sometimes you just cannot compete with a classic. This elegant white embellished masterpiece by Haute So Sweet has seven intricately designed tiers and more than 100 gardenias.
My Daughter’s Cakes: Bogota, N.J.
A rustic wedding cake that blends an enchanted forest with a princess’ touch? Um, yes please! This beautiful "tree cake" could be a tree itself with its towering layers going higher than 5 feet, and comes from the whimsical genius of My Daughter’s Cake — who got their name from cake artist Denise Smith’s proud mother.
Sweet Southern Ladies: St. Martinville, La.
Absolutely breathtaking, this multi-tiered, multi-based cake is the epitome of grandeur and comes in at more than 5 feet tall. We love how the Sweet Southern Ladies were able to capture both a regal and simple presence in their cake (although to be fair, they have many other large cakes that do the same!).
Who Made the Cake: Houston
And for the grandest of them all, we give you this jaw-dropping work of art from Nadine Moon at Who Made the Cake. This beautiful creation was entirely crafted by hand. The lucky couple, Jennifer & Ryan Pickett, requested their cake have a carriage, angel wings, crosses, and lots of sugar flowers. Completely personalized and totally astounding, this cake reached enormous heights of and was a beautiful embodiment of big-time perfection.
