The baby blue base of this Marie Antoinette-inspired beauty is practically dripping with gold and the intricate white detailing makes it all the more lavish. As she once said, “Let them eat cake!”

When you’re thinking about blue wedding cakes, think about adding the color in the decoration and detail rather than the base like this blue floral cake. It’s unexpected and fun but still classic enough to satisfy the most traditional tastes.
