Watercolor, geodes, succulents…we’re no stranger to wedding cakes that double as works of art. But the newest trend we’re seeing takes “work of art” to the next level: bas-relief cakes. These masterpieces look as if they belong in the museum, right next to Venus De Milo. Here are some of our favorite bas-relief centerpieces cakes that look they’ve been carved right out of marble. (Don’t worry: They’re totally edible.)
Classic Bas Relief
Top it with a flower from your bouquet.
Boxy and Brilliant
Geode cake, meet your long-lost cousin, marble.
Enchanted Forest Design
Fairy-tale wedding, anyone?
No one said it had to be white marble.
Simple and Elegant
Sometimes less is more.
Metallic and Ombre
…But going for the half-court shot isn’t bad either.
The Museum-Worthy Cake
We just can’t cut into it. We’ll donate it to the Louvre instead.
