The pattern pressed into the icing adds elegance and class making this style of icing great for photos and impressing your guests. It may be a little more on the expensive side and require finding someone who has the skill to pull it off.

Decorations can make or break your wedding cake. In this case the decoration is a simple branch with flowers that compliments the left side of the cake. It has an amazing effect. Decorations are best used when in line with your wedding decorations or when they have substantial meaning to the bride and groom.
