Cakes to Remember

It’s what’s on the inside and the outside that counts—if not in life, then at least when it comes to wedding cakes. Ellen Bartlett’s confections get high marks in both design and taste: Dainty sugar flowers, metallic ombré fondant, and intricate lace and damask details give way to moist, fluffy layers in flavors such as strawberry–orange blossom and caramel tiramisu. Want to have your cake and make sure all of your guests can eat it, too? The bakery also prepares gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan recipes.
