Sweet Style Icons {A Look Back at the Cakes that Made Our Best-Dressed List}

cakequoteWe agree, Julia… a party without cake is definitely just a meeting. The days of humble sheet cakes are long gone! The cake game has changed, and we’re loving it. Choosing a cake for any event from birthday parties to showers can be the sweetest part of planning. No matter what size or style you choose, get creative with the process and make sure the sweet center of attention reflects the theme and tone of your event. With the many gorgeous events we’re invited to photograph, we have had too many cake crushes to count. It would be a crime to keep some of these stunning cakes to ourselves. Although the deliberation process was extremely difficult, we’re sharing the red-carpet-worthy cakes that made it to the top of our best-dressed list! We hope these tiered treats will bring inspiration and serve as a reference for all of you with something to celebrate {pssst…don’t forget to pin as you plan}!
