Make Eyes Pop: 9 Showstopping Wedding Cakes

05/02/2013 11:46 am ET | Updated Apr 13, 2016

Good, bad, or indifferent, one of the most talked about points of any event is the food. Because so many people (including team Loverly!) gravitate toward all things sweet, we thought it only appropriate to focus on cakes. But we're going beyond how they taste. Instead, let's talk about how to make the sweetest treat at your wedding make an eye-popping statement long before you and your beau share your first piece.

While the classic white wedding cake will never go out of style, we're saying hello to ombre, metallics, watercolors, and more (oh, yes!). Here are 9 of our favorite creative wedding cakes that all boast some serious style.

1. Watercolor
The bright watercolors on this cake create such a beautiful art form.

4. Regal
This cake may be classic in color, but it's far from simple. Gorgeous and regal are the first words that come to mind!

8. Beach
Quickest way to catch our eye: model your cake after a sandcastle for your beach themed wedding!
