Lace has always been a bridal staple. But we’ve never seen this delicate, intricate material more coveted by brides than it is in this very moment. Let’s step away from gowns for a moment, though, and take a look at how lace is making its mark on…CAKES! You may remember Houston bride Kaleigh’s gorgeous Who Made the Cake cake, inspired by the bride’s lovely lace bolero. Well, we’ve got a few more lace-inspired cakes that are so pretty, it’s hard to believe they’re confections, not couture!

We know a gal who swears that as a toddler she went through a phase where she’d only eat white food. Cottage cheese, rice, white bread. That sort of thing. Now that she’s all grown up, our formerly finicky friend has expanded her culinary tastes exponentially. Thank goodness, too. Because white food is blah food.
Except when it’s dessert. Wedding dessert, in particular. Picture a post-meal sweets spread, filled with exquisite goodies in different wedding-white shades from snow to cream, beckoning guests to dig in. Pretty, right? Especially when displayed on lovely, vintage-inspired tiered dessert trays and cake plates like these. Have your cake…and eat lots of other yummy desserts, too, we say!
