I just adore this hand-painted cake by SugarAvenueCake. The flower and bird design is so lovely and well-done. It may have been their first hand-painted cake…but I certainly hope it’s not the last!

With summer in mind, what’s not to love about singhscakes‘ watermelon cake? This life-size creation has such spot-on coloring and detail that it makes me want a slice of this cake with watermelon on the side!

Vintage Polaroid Camera…Say Cheese! This cake was the perfect gift for our dear friend and photographer.

Dlish’s Polaroid camera cake not only showcases the cakemaker’s creativity, but represents a fun and personalized way to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The bold colors and geometric shapes are eye-catching and distinctive, giving it a retro feel that will certainly bring back memories.

origami cake

This is my first attempt after having seen the wonderful Peggy’s tutorial of this tecnique. I changed the colour, the rows and the flowers on the top as I love peonies. This is one of my cakes at the Cake design italian festival, the biggest cake show in Italy held he past week-end. I hope you like it…

The elegant blend of geometric, origami-inspired design alongside the natural floral element makes for a unique, striking combination in this cake by alemoka. I also adore the contrast of the vibrant blue layers and rich, coral blossom accents.
