For a truly couture wedding cake, then the birdcage veil wedding cake design stands apart as the ultimate style statment for fashionista brides and those who love vintage style. We have two exquisite examples of wedding cake millinery above by Sweet Bloom Cakes, Australia (image by Nattnee Photography) and Cove Cake Design, Ireland (above right).
