Vintage. 1920s-inspired fondant cake with rhinestone trim accents, sugar flowers and a bottom tier adorned with edible wafer-paper feathers

Winery or Barn. Fondant cake with edible sugar flowers and fondant with birch-bark details.

Chalk Art. Completely edible hand-painted chalk-art-inspired fondant cake with a ruffled bottom tier accented with edible gold and printed edible wafer-paper flowers.
