7 Pretty Cakes We Can’t Stop Looking At

Classic wedding cake elements like buttercream and sugar flowers are taken to the next level in these lovely new designs from the pages of The Knot Spring 2014 magazine. The three things we’re loving now: refined buttercream lace, gorgeously realistic sugar flower clusters and metallic accents like horizontal stripes and gold foil. See just how romantic these modern details are in the photos by Philip Ficks below and here.
