Wedding Planning

Maggie Austin Cakes

When it comes to planning out the details of a wedding the two things I’d be likely to focus on would be the food and the cake.

When it comes to planning out the details of a wedding the two things I’d be likely to focus on would be the food and the cake. (My guests would eat well!) I know there are a lot of dessert and sweet table trends but, regardless of what variety of sweets I might consider, a wedding cake would still hold court for me. The harder part would be deciding which kind. This would especially ring true if I had to pick from all of the gloriously beautiful options created by Maggie Austin.

Each cake is individually tailored by this amazing Washington D.C.-based pastry artisan and what an artist Maggie is! From an elegantly spare but anything-but-traditional asymmetrical white 2-tier design to an elaborate Tiffany stained glass-inspired floral beauty, the former ballet dancer seems to have no limit in her ability to create one breathtaking couture cake after another. Truly a feast for all the senses!
