This five-tiered creation by Ursula Art of the Cake on Boylston Street in Boston is abloom with intricately handmade gum paste flowers and covered in rolled fondant. Tone-on-tone flowers are painted on the sides of each tier.

For those who want to save a memento of their Big Day, the sweet treats from Ursula Art of the Cake on Boylston Street include a three-tiered Gardenia cake with a special twist. The gum-paste bouquet, which can first serve as a sumptuous decoration for the cake, can later be saved as a memento of the wedding. Ursula’s cakes can be customized to suit any taste, from a ginger butter cake to a hazelnut torte.

Average prices range from $9 to $11 per person.
