Laurel Loves || Amazing Cakes

The wedding cake — an edible work of art, the sweetest part of your reception, a glorious display of tasty design found perched atop a stand awaiting the bride and groom’s attention. (Your guests are anxiously waiting for it, too.)

Like a great unveiling, we always look forward to seeing our brides’ and grooms’ cakes. No two are ever the same — and yet each one has a way of leaving us both in awe and reaching for the closest fork.

These cakes are so gorgeous you don’t want to see them cut . . . but, alas, the fulfillment of their overall enjoyment is when you get your slice.

Our grooms’ cakes have all been show-stoppers, but much to our chagrin, we have yet to see one shaped like a giant armadillo. (Wink!)

(Don’t pass that last image too quick — the wine barrel is so realistic it’s hard to believe it’s a cake!)

Wedding cakes show off style in a way no other wedding detail can. And what’s better than cutting the cake and enjoying your first bite as husband and wife?
