Pair painterly shades with exquisite de­tail­ing for ed­i­ble works of art that are al­most too pretty to eat

Cre­ated by SUGARCOAT

The del­i­cate look of this cake comes from wafer pa­per— which was used for the leaves and petals, painted in soft, water­colour-like shades of green, li­lac and pink, and ac­cented in gold. More wafer pa­per was used to cover the cake to cre­ate an om­bre ef­fect, all to con­ceal a lemon and rasp­berry cake lay­ered with but­ter­cream.

Cre­ated by PEN­NEY PANG DE­SIGNER CAKES

Pen­ney Pang demon­strates her prow­ess at sculpt­ing sugar, be­gin­ning with sugar roses and hy­drangeas to add some flo­ral flair to the top tier, while sugar paste is used to cre­ate bas-re­lief de­tail­ing at the base of the cake. Un­der­neath all this pretty sugar work is a deca­dent choco­late cake matched with rose­wa­ter but­ter­cream.

Cre­ated by VIVE CAKE BOU­TIQUE

But­ter­cream is used to cre­ate this Au­tumn Blos­soms pat­tern, fea­tur­ing a trail of flow­ers in pas­tel shades. It looks too pretty to cut into but once you do, a sump­tu­ous red vel­vet cake—Vive Cake Bou­tique’s most pop­u­lar flavour—awaits.

Cre­ated by THE SYM­PHONY DE­SIGNER CAKES

This cake comes with a poetic name—Ode to But­ter­flies—and a sentimenta­l back­story, start­ing from an ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign cov­ered with vanilla fon­dant to de­pict a house, as a sym­bol of a new stage in the cou­ple’s lives, dec­o­rated with but­ter­flies made from wafer pa­per to hark back to the feel­ings that the bride and groom had when they knew they had found their soul­mate. This at­ten­tion to de­tail ex­tends to the cake—a pink vel­vet con­coc­tion lay­ered with straw­berry jam and cham­pagne cream.
