Red Velvet Wedding Cakes

#1: Ombre Red Velvet Cake

Ombre Red Velvet Cake


To break with tradition, Francina Stewart of One Girl Cookies in Brooklyn, New York, created ombre layers of cake and then covered them with beads of cream cheese buttercream. The end result is charmingly retro, with a homemade quality that makes you want to sneak a swipe of frosting.

#2: Red Velvet Magnolia Cake

Red Velvet Magnolia Cake

Hidden beneath the swooping white frosting of this tiered dessert are stunning scarlet layers infused with buttermilk and cocoa. For added flavor, we've substituted a tangy cream-cheese frosting for the standard flour-based icing, spreading it between each layer and outside, and adorning it with gum-paste magnolias.

#3: Ikat and French Silk Ribbon Cake
