Architecturally Inspired Cakes: Moorish

Martha Stewart Weddings, Summer 2001

The hexagonal and rectangular tiers of this cake were inspired by the architecture of Spain that incorporates a blend of motifs from various cultures, Middle Eastern as well as European. The applied ornament is influenced by the dense and brilliant tile work of the Arab world, with parapets of exotic curved crenelations constructed of gum paste.
