These glorious gilded cakes are proof that sometimes more really is more. What better time to "gild the lily" than with a wedding cake. Maggie Austin shows her consummate artistry in the details of two cakes in which nature's resplendent flowers are embellished with sparkling gold. Charm City Cakes follows suit with sleeker, modern compositions—nature bejeweled as dazzling wedding cakes.
