Premade decorations dress up a wedding cake in an instant. Embellishments -- crafted from gum paste or marzipan and painted with food-safe paint -- can be ordered from Wendy Kromer Cake Confections in Sandusky, Ohio (Kromer's cakes often appear in Martha Stewart Weddings). Trimmings are made to order, then shipped. Have your baker make a plain cake (this one is a basic three-layer cake topped with fondant) to use as a canvas for an assortment of adornments, which can be attached with royal icing. Piped trim at the base of each tier provides decoration.
