Romantic Wedding Cakes is the beloved—and classic—wedding cake book from the inimitable master sugar artist and Food Network Challenge Judge Kerry Vincent.

A collection of breathtaking wedding and celebration cakes from an internationally acclaimed cake stylist, Romantic Wedding Cakes includes stunning cakes for all kinds of weddings. From classic to contemporary and simple to elaborate, including engagement and groom cakes, professional cake decorator Kerry Vincent's timeless sugarcraft designs make this the ideal wedding cake sourcebook for brides-to-be and cake decorators alike.

Her stunning romantic cakes, in the prettiest of colors, feature various fabric styles such as folds, ribbons, embroidery and lace effects. The spectacular gold cake based on the Marquise de Pompadour's fabulous gold dress and jewels is a beautiful example.

Vincent works with both popular and more unusual flowers for dramatic visual impact, using large, full-blown roses, pansies, mini hydrangeas, lisianthus and some native US flowers, such as the dogwood and balloon flower.

In addition, there are two chocolate groom's cakes, a Valentine or engagement heart cake and miniature wedding cakes for the bride and groom. There are also special decorative projects, such as elaborate cake top decorations, wedding favors and table decor.

Each cake is beautifully photographed in full color and includes step-by-step photographs and dazzling close-ups of all the main cake design details to ensure perfect results.

Cakes include:
  • Mosaic Magic
  • Romancing the Dome
  • Tiers in a Teacup
  • Affair with Blue and White
  • And the Bride Chose Dogwood
  • Invitation to a Summer Wedding
  • Fabulous Faux Faberge Eggs
