As editors of Cake Central Magazine, we come across countless inspiring things every day. From cakemakers’ stories to wedding inspiration to cool new products, we want to share a few of our favorite finds with you every week. This week we were impressed by lighthouses, windmills and intricately detailed cakes with clean lines and sophisticated color schemes. Here are this week’s Friday Faves!

I absolutely adore all white wedding cakes, and this white cake by ninettaduci is no exception. The intricate hand piping and stringwork on this cake are exquisite.

Is grey is the new white? Well if it isn’t, it should be!  I love the use of grey on ShanisSweetCreations’s cake. The peach pops off the muted shade.  Lovely!

Inspired by Delftware (blue and white pottery made in the Netherlands), I love how this cake contrasts a bright, clean white with vibrant shades of blue. BellaRia did a fantastic job painting each and every little fine detail— and she mentions in the description that this was only her first time painting a cake!

This cake was an exact replica of the Admiralty Chart for this area, there were l0 navigation lights that lit in sequence with the Lighthouse, the transformer was concealed under the main cake board and wiring brought up through drinking straws to the surface. The map area was chocolate cake, underneath Lighthouse Fruit cake and Lighthouse modelled from modelling sugar with adrinking straw up through centre to house wiring. By maureentimpson

A fan of all things nautical, I love this lighthouse and navigation chart cake by maureentimpson. The detail that went into this cake to make it an exact replica of an Admiralty Chart is inspiring, and the modeled lighthouse is so exact. Inspiring work!

Spring Break

 “Spring Break.” By mooietaart

I must be a purist at heart, because the more I look at this simple and stunning anniversary cake by  MooieTaart, the more I want a design like this at my own wedding. The smooth tiers are classic and clean, and the stamens add just the right amount of jazz.
