Starting with a little old-fashioned design:
The detail here is stunning. Look at the intricate piping on that lace! It looks like delicate tablecloths on each tier. (And those colors are magnificent!)
I am in love with the "rusted" look of this cake:
I'm pretty sure my G-ma still has Tupperware exactly like this on top of her fridge. I love it.
And this cake looks a lot like some yarn-art she had hanging on her wall when I was a kid. (Which might actually still be there.)
This one is immaculate:
Have I said "flawless" yet? Because I'll say it again: FLAWLESS. Wouldn't you think this was the most fragile of porcelain? And look at the gently embossed vines by the flowers. I can't even draw a straight line. Unbelievable.
Next let's visit some art deco divas.
And this one, too:
Those feathers are actually edible wafer paper!
Can someone give me another word for "breathtakingly gorgeously beautiful... seriously, this is flawless"? (For some reason this reminds me of Miss Piggy's dream sequence in The Great Muppet Caper.)
This architectural look is amazing.
And this might be my favorite cake of the whole post:
And maybe my most favorite cake ever. I can't get over that fabulous mint green! I want this as a dress, a cake, and a wallpaper. And a hat. Simply... flawless.
