A classic round cake is the perfect backdrop for pattern and embellishments. Here, the iconic heart is repeated in a Swiss dot pattern, giving it a fresh look without overpower the cake's design. Pops of metallic, like gold bands, and eye-catching, pastel sugar flowers (finished with pearl centers) add glitz and texture.

White cakes are the ultimate in understated elegance (not to mention timeless). Better still, they pair perfectly with whatever wedding colors you choose. This classic style gets an update with playful stripes and modern lace accents. Cascading sugar flowers add a 3-D texture and a touch of whimsy.

Gold foil isn't just for stationery. Metallics are popping up in everything from paper and shoes to layers of cake. Hand-painted watercolor tiers add a splash of pink, while keeping the gold from becoming garish. An acrylic scripted "Mr. & Mrs." by Little Cat Design Co. is a contemporary take on the classic bride and groom cake topper.

This white cake is anything but boring! Layers of hand-rolled fondant create a rippled wave look--proof that a simple design can make a big impact. A classic cascade of sugar flowers in pastel colors adds dimension and a touch of tradition.

Sylvia Weinstock proves buttercream isn't just for rustic weddings. A delicately piped vintage lace pattern adds depth and deliciousness to each layer. Roses, tulips, peonies, berries and Mokara orchids complement crisp green leaves for a fresh take on sugar flowers. The piece de resistance? A bottom layer covered in edible 24-karat gold leaf.

This rustic-style confection focuses on the cake! Unfrosted layers of lemon cake are sandwiched between vanilla buttercream frosting and are often filled with fruit and topped with fresh flowers.

This cake takes traditional to the next level with sprinkled sugar detailing and scalloped white frosting designs on each tier. Add a pop of color at the bottom with soft, pink calla lily sugar flowers.

Buttercream lace, metallic accents, playful patterns, sugar-spun blooms--you'll fall for these modern cakes.
