“The inside of the cake is truly the best part! This cake is one of my favorites: alternating layers of chocolate and vanilla cake with fresh raspberries. It’s so delicious!” _Betsy

“Using a black and white color palette, we kept this cake clean and modern, while the sugar anemones softened the overall look. The flavor inside repeated the black and white color palette with a decadent dark chocolate espresso cake, whites chocolate buttercream and chocolate pearls.” _Betsy

“I love how crisp this cake is with the single black band, and adorned with only sugar greenery. Soft and tailored, without anything floral!” _Betsy

“Using watercolor elements in cake design is a fun way to incorporate subtle color and texture. The watercolor also provides a nice counterpoint to the crisp geometric line work. Very modern and elegant! _Betsy

“The square tiers keep the cake modern and sharp, while the silver surface decoration gives it an organic feel. This one had a dramatic effect using a seemingly simple idea of little silver pearls spilling around the cake.” _Betsy

“While I love the drama of a clean, stark design, it’s equally fun to run wild in abundance! A charcoal cake provides a dramatic backdrop for sugar flowers—hellebores, anemones, blue thistle, wildflowers, palm leaves, jasmine vines. The variety of textures and low-contrast colors (with the small pops of color!) provide high interest, and the brushes of gold finish off the look.” _Betsy

“Choosing a single color and working in a gradient is a fun way to incorporate color and keep the design interesting. I love the not quite complete oval shapes, and the thin lines keep the abstract design from feeling overwhelming.” _Betsy

“Minimalist design at its finest! A stark black cake with a hint of gold dripping down the side. Bold and beautiful!” _Betsy

“This one! We love using fresh fruit as decor–it creates such an abundant, decadent look. The decor also hints at the flavor of the cake itself too: this cake was lemon with layers of lime curd and orange cream cheese icing. We added yellow drips and a painterly backdrop for a little extra drama–you can never have too much drama at a wedding!” Betsy

“Another cake using fresh winter citrus fruits as decor–this one included pink lemons, blood oranges, kumquats, lemons, key limes and all set against a stark white backdrop of the cake.” _Betsy

“A fun way to balance the deconstructed look of a naked cake with a more refined iced cake—and the two looks meeting in the middle with an organic line of gold.” _Betsy
