CHIC & SWEET ARTISAN CAKES
Chef Carissa Berbrick
Modern elegance is the name of the game for this Champagne cake with a strawberry spread and a custard buttercream filling. It’s covered in fondant and decorated with an ombré gray base and golden edges. Wafer paper sails, gold lace accents, and handmade sugar flowers add an artistic touch, while mini baked doughnuts coated in cinnamon sugar complete the sweet scene.

THE BREAKERS PALM BEACH
Chef Joshua Rhodes
Customization is a popular theme when it comes to wedding cakes. For this creation, Joshua Rhodes opted for alternating tiers of gold, various textures, and intricate floral detailing. Each tier also conceals a different flavor, such as chocolate buttermilk with white chocolate mousse and sliced strawberries, and vanilla cake with a dulce de leche filling.

EAU PALM BEACH
Chef Zachary Detweiller
This cake encapsulates all things Palm Beach. Inside, a Key lime and graham cracker cake is accented by a Key lime mousse filling and meringue. Outside, a crisp fondant exterior gives way to cascading citrus-flavored macarons in orange, lemon, and lime. Miniature oranges crown the top and leaves appear throughout.
