Modern and Romantic Cakes: It’s all about Texture

Oh D.C. brides aren't you a bunch of lucky ducks!

When I stumbled across this cake over on Little Lovely I nearly fell out of my chair. It is wonderfully romantic and charming, yet insanely elegant. When I clicked over to Maggie Austin Cake to see the rest of the portfolio I couldn't believe the eye candy! These cakes in part invoke old fashioned cakes frosted into swirls with a butter knife. Yet the architecture and design are artfully precise and controlled. As one might expect with any piece of art, these cakes do not come cheaply. Prices start at $10 per slice, based on the intricacy of the design. I say these cakes alone are good reason to reduce that guest list!
