These pretty purple cookies by Maggie Austin Cake. We love couture confections (see here, here, and here), treats that have required much time and love to result in total and complete eye candy. Too pretty to eat? Perhaps.
ar·chi·tec·ture (noun): the profession of designing buildings… and other artificial constructions and environments, usually with some regard to aesthetic effect. (source) As if classic, traditional cakes aren’t already visually appealing, there’s a new crop of architecturally-designed cakes being rolled out at weddings. More bakers and cake artists are thinking outside the box by experimenting with proportions. Take Maggie Austin for example; some of her tiered creations are a clean line on one side, while steep step-style tiers make up the other. The Caketress also showcases cakes less ordinary, from mixed-shape cakes to confections of varying tier heights. If you’re looking for cake ideas, and whether you’re going the more traditional route or not, we think you’ll enjoy these architecturally-unique cakes.

What is it that makes black and white combined so incredibly enticing? To begin, the combo is chic, elegant and clean; and no, that doesn’t mean simple or boring. The real beauty is brought out in playing with textures, patterns and shapes. Too, add the slightest touch of gold, red or any color and it’s a whole new ballgame. Here’s a little taste of the black and white creations we love, such as a luscious white gown with black sash (timeless), a black and white cake with exquisite details (genius) and striped linens devoid of color (bold, yet classic when slightly subdued by flowers). Enjoy!
