With wedding season in full swing here in Charleston, pastry chef Jessica Grossman is serving up her usual brilliance – adding an irresistible batch of new cake flavors and fillings to Patrick Properties’ specialty wedding cake repertoire.

And when it comes to design, our pastry team makes whipping up couture confections look like a piece of cake.
With so many lovely (and delicious) options, we’ve matched a few of our favorites to your big-day style. So tell us, which wedding cake puts the icing on your dream occasion?
The Sweet Southern Belle
From hominy grits and magnolia blossoms to soft pastels and heirloom pearls, every detail of your special day makes Southern charm look effortless. A family recipe and a well-placed monogram are the finishing touches. Treat your wedding guests to a slice of hummingbird cake with candied ginger cream cheese filling – it’s almost as good as your momma makes it.
The Modern Trendsetter
With your eye for design and bold color palettes, you are always one step ahead. We think these fresh-faced beauties really make a statement – and you will too! Pair chocolate cake tiers and an almond buttercream topped with fresh fruit or showstopper blooms.
The Classic Beauty
Some things just never go out of style. Almond cake and light-as-air vanilla buttercream is the little black dress of our specialty wedding cake selection and guaranteed to please any crowd. Delicate white piping is the definition of simple elegance. Audrey Hepburn would be proud.
