Artful Cakes - Raleigh, NC.

If your wedding cake means more to you than just dessert, an artful wedding cake can be an unforgettable conversation piece to your reception. Cake artists employ their talents for weddings to not only show the personalities of the couple but give them something to cherish and admire as they celebrate. And with unlimited imagination and ingredients, a wedding cake these days can be almost too incredible to eat.

Painting on cakes? Yes! Cake artists can literally paint on a wedding cake to resemble just about anything a couple prefers. These hand-painted blue and white flowers unbelievably match the sugar flowers on top. 


And sometimes the most precise skill is simply executing clean lines. This five-tier creation features immaculate white buttercream with elegant gold swirls solely on one single tier.
