CRUSHED-CANDY WEDDING CAKEAs fun to make as it will be to eat, our dazzling marmalade-sweet cake takes a small muscle—and that is about it. Buy your favorite hard candies (these are by La Vie de La Vosgienne), place them in a substantial resealable plastic bag, get a rolling pin, and also have a blast pounding away your prewedding jitters. Then press on the crushed pieces that are glittering to the sides of a buttercream cake.
A WEDDING CAKE WITH DISTINCT STRIPESHere, we place the thought of icing on ice, relying instead on unadorned pastel layers for graphical appeal. Coconut pound cake, tinted with gel-paste food coloring, functions as the foundation, while white fondant and passion fruit curd rests on top (the curd can be between each layer).
WHITE-CHOCOLATE PANELED WEDDING CAKEArchitectural though intimate, our white-chocolate panel cake needs neither culinary abilities nor design skills (apart from those you learned in preschool). Simply purchase a buttercream cake from a pack of chocolate panels from chocolatier Christopher Norman along with a nearby bakery. The remainder is a cakewalk: Stick panels of varying heights onto the layers, and fill the ledges with a different fruit or gold raspberries.

HEART WEDDING CAKEThe heart was believed to be the source of all human emotions. Though modern science proves otherwise, the phrase "giving your heart" continues to be the easiest way to express that you simply had give anything for the one you adore. Jay Qualls of the Tennessee-based Maples Wedding Cakes printed our designs covered them in parchment, traced them with royal icing, then transferred them.
WEDDING PETIT FOURSSoaked in brown sugar, butter, and honey glaze, these geometric minis - Schell and Caitlin Brown resemble honeycombs. We topped them off with whipped cream and a serving of candied kumquats.
POTTED PLANT WEDDING CAKEContributing editor Jason Schreiber made this herb-adorned cake, which features oregano, fennel and cilantro blossoms, bachelor's buttons, sweet alyssums, pea shoots, and micro marigolds. Swiss meringue buttercream's tacky feel kept the edible flowers (buy your own at gourmetsweetbotanicals.com) in place.
