Magnolia Bakery — credited with starting the cupcake craze back in the ’90s — recently announced that they’re (finally!) delving into the world of tiered wedding cakes. The gorgeous cakes will be available at their bakeries in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, and the designs hit upon all of the top wedding cake trends right now. Check them out, and let us know your favorite!

Textured Ombré

Accent Tier
Adding a pattern — from rosettes to pearls to metallic leaf — on just one tier instantly gives your cake more visual interest.

New Height
Make your cake stand taller by separating your tiers with florals or even a cake stand.
