Chic Confections for Wedding Wows

BY Margo Steines | April 19, 2017 | Feature Features

Exclusively for St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, confectionaire extraordinaire Sylvia Weinstock has designed three iconic cakes that are sure to wow your wedding guests and sweeten your nuptials.
The Enchanting Escape cake features tropical leaves and island florals

Destination weddings are about location, location, location, and celebrated cake artist Sylvia Weinstock has taken inspiration from some of St. Regis’ most vibrant locales, from Bal Harbour and Manhattan to Bali and the Maldives. This unique collection is available in the islands for celebrations at the St. Regis Princeville.

Our top pick for island allure is the Enchanting Escape, a classic four-tier shape featuring a glorious cascade of tropical flowers in blushing pink and bridal white, nestled atop a bed of lush greenery. For this ravishing cake, Weinstock was inspired by St. Regis’ many island destinations--including the Princeville Resort. What could be more sublime than marrying the creation and the muse?

For the modern couple with an eye for architecture, the Deco Decadence simply stuns. Inspired by the hall of mirrors at the St. Regis Bal Harbour, this silver jewel-box cake breaks the mold, featuring sharp angles and three geometric tiers, all crowned by a spray of icy florals.

The American Rose is the epitome of gilded glamour. Each of its five tiers are adorned with gold-accented cameos, and the entire confection is draped with an intricate spiral of cream colored flowers, golden leaves and alabaster beads. Inspired by St. Regis patroness and New York society maven Caroline Astor’s grand balls, this cake harkens back to the turn of the twentieth century in truly extravagant style.

While these creations do appear too divine to eat, rest assured that they taste as magnificent as they look!
