What is there to say? This cake probably took all of two weeks to put together, and it’s worth every bit of the effort. The floral wreath that runs across the base is complemented by the similar decoration on the bottom layer. If you’re looking at a floral theme, this is an excellent example of how to do things right.

Picture this cake entirely in white, and it seems a simplified version of some of the cakes listed above, and that’s not a bad thing. Put in the blue accents, however, and you’ve got a cake that is perfect if you’re working with that color in your decor, or more likely, if you’re having a beach wedding. Replace with your color/shade of choosing, or the one that works best with your theme.
