These creative wedding cakes enlist traditional quilting techniques to impress guests. Fondant doubles as fabric, and piped icing stands in for stitches. The result? An heirloom that's too delicious to pass down.
Here, fondant-covered squares are adorned with edible embroidery -- made of piped royal icing -- to resemble patchwork pieces. And though they might look like the perfect mouthful, each four-inch sweet is sized for sharing. "Mini cakes make a great display, but they're a little more costly, so plan for people to split them," says Wendy Kromer, a Martha Stewart Weddings contributing editor and owner of City Bake Shop in Sandusky, Ohio.
