Cake of the Week: Marie Antoinette Wedding Cake

I’ve been posting my cake of the week for some time now and while I love every single one of the cakes I’ve featured, this cake is going down as my new favourite.   This Marie Antoinette themed wedding cake by Cake As Art in San Francisco is a superb example of fine sugarcraft.

The wedding, held May 31st at the Marines Memorial in downtown San Francisco, was as coquettish as can be, with inspiration from Marie Antoinette’s lavish style. The cake is iced in pink butterceam and the scroll details are hand piped in buttercream and painted in gold. The cameos, bands and bow are made with fondant, painted bronze. The topper was transported all the way from the amazing patisserie, La Duree, in Paris.

It makes me seriously want to scream – “Let Them Eat Cake!”  Team this gorgeous cake with some other Marie Antoinette wedding theme style described over at Pink Frosting’s wedding inspiration pages.

Happy Celebrating!
