A vintage tower is created by putting the cupcakes inside delicate teacups and combining lots of different bun casing and decorations.

Bright, vibrant icing can completely change the look of a cake. No one will pass this Indian themed cake without taking a second look. The pink, orange and blue are tied together with gold layers and trimmings.

The different sized layering and height of this cake creates a variation from the usual visual lines of a wedding cake. You can create this cake for cheaper than you think as every layer does not have to be edible. Styrofoam covered in icing can have the same look however will be cheaper (and easier) to create.
