Now that my brother is engaged and getting married this October I am starting to look more at things I have not seen in awhile. And it's amazing to me the choices couples have now for just about anything they can imagine for wedding cakes. I found these ones to be really cute, they are from Loving Sullivan Cakes.

Born in 1948 Mexican architect Javier Senosiain's work might look a bit like it's from outer space, but he actually designs things very organically and takes a lot of his cues from nature. His works are similar in design to architecht Frank Lloyd Wright in my opinion, and I think his designs are beautiful and imaginative.He even published a book on bio-architechture that you can get HERE.
