When it comes to your cake just about any detail can be the starting point for your design from your invitations to lace on your dress, your favorite flower and even a work of art! Some couples and cake bakers are thinking of their cake as a blank canvas and are using it to recreate artworks in fondant and frosting. See some of our favorites below (you don’t have to be an art connoisseur to appreciate how cool these cakes are!).

An Abstract Paint-Drip Cake
for the love of Juneau Photography

It made total sense that bride who is an artist would have a marbleized paint-drip cake representing her own artwork.
