Wedding cakes are an art form — an edible art form for that matter. And for many brides, the wedding cake is just as important as the dress and bouquet on their big day. A wedding cake is not something that is simply eaten and forgotten; it makes a statement with how good it looks, how great it tastes, and it reflects the bride and groom as a couple.
Butterflies are some of nature’s most delicate and beautiful creatures. Ancient folklore popularly recognizes butterflies as symbols of the soul, and what could be more romantic than the unity of two souls in marriage?
These gorgeous cakes from Wedding Cakes by Helena perfectly portray that romantic divinity in confectionary form. We are in awe of the intricate detail in each butterfly wing and the fragility of the design in both of these amazing wedding cakes.
