The couple’s elegant wedding cake was comprised of three square tiers, with a rhinestone glam wrap around the bottom of each tier. Their cake topper was silver with a touch of bling as well. Their cake was equal parts sophisticated and glamorous – a perfect fit for their lovely New Years Eve wedding.

Each piece of cake was a mix of vanilla and chocolate cake with salted caramel buttercream. The Italian merengue buttercream on the outside was smooth, creating a sleek and clean look.

Custom Cake Spotlight: Elegant Wedding Cake with Fondant Ruffles

Last year, Erin and Dan tied the knot during a gorgeous wedding at the Harold Washington Library. Their delicious and beautiful wedding cake had a relatively simple design, topped with elegant details. We always love being part of weddings that take place in some of Chicago’s most gorgeous and iconic buildings, like the Harold Washington Library. Kudos to Anthony Navarro of Liven It Up Events for planning such a beautiful wedding! Take a look at the lovely couple and their wedding cake through these gorgeous photos by Cristina G Photography.

Erin and Dan’s three tier ivory wedding cake was decorated with fondant ruffles, giving it a unique texture. It also had some lovely fresh floral as well as a cute gold cake topper.

Following tradition, the couple kept their top tier and froze it to enjoy on their first anniversary. (We offer all of our clients a fresh top tier if they would prefer to serve their entire cake on the day of their wedding.)

The bottom tier was vanilla bean cake with white chocolate as well as raspberry buttercream, the second tier was chocolate cake with raspberry buttercream, and their top tier was vanilla bean cake with chocolate and white chocolate buttercream. Yum!

Custom Cake Spotlight: Four Tier Wedding Cake with Gorgeous Sugar Floral

Nadiya and Vlad tied the knot at The Murphy last summer, and their wedding cake was both elegant and lovely. The couple wanted their decor to exemplify sophisticated, timeless beauty, and they sure achieved it! Kara Superfine Events did an amazing job putting together their beautiful wedding. Have a look at the gorgeous photos below by Studio This Is.



Nadiya and Vlad’s four tier fondant wedding cake was adorned with an array of sugar floral: white hydrangeas, white spray roses, white phalaenopsis orchids, and white cherry blossoms with hints of lavender. The small separator in the middle (separating the upper two tiers from the lower two tiers) was completely covered in this variety of sugar floral.


The final elegant detail on their wedding cake was a custom silver monogram, representing the initial of both of their first names.


The wedding cake had completely different flavor combinations for each tier: vanilla bean cake with raspberry mousse and white chocolate mousse fillings, chocolate cake with salted caramel buttercream and dark chocolate ganache fillings, almond cake with coffee buttercream filling, and last but not least – vegan peanut butter cake with vegan chocolate buttercream filling. No matter what their guests’ taste preferences were, we’re sure they were able to find a flavor combination that they loved!



Kehoe Designs provided Nadiya and Vlad’s beautiful fresh floral, and Blue Plate Catering was their caterer. We hope Nadiya and Vlad enjoyed their gorgeous wedding cake as much as we loved making it!
