Drop Everything: Vera Wang Is Designing Wedding Cakes!
Vera Wang has been designing dreamy wedding dress since the 1990s, dressing everyone from Carrie Bradshaw and Victoria Beckham to Hannah Davis for their big days. Now, the iconic bridal guru is extending her reach ever further, teaming up with equally iconic French bakery Ladurée for a line of wedding cakes and desserts inspired by her bridal gowns, and quite frankly, a more perfect union has never existed.
The unique collaboration was teased on the Parisian-based patisserie’s page, and, as one would expect, they’re positively magical.
Vera Wang Pour Ladurée includes a line of all-white, coconut and mango wedding cakes, mini cakes, and, as Wang’s own official Instagram revealed, a statement cake made out of coconut crème chantilly.
The tasty treats are inspired both by the former Vogue editor’s famed designs and her love of Paris. She spoke with Elle about the exciting new collab, saying, “Among my most memorable and enchanting experiences in Paris has always been Ladurée, whether it was tea sandwiches, shopping with my mother, or taking my daughters for lunch in St Germain, Ladurée has always been a part of my Parisian experience. I was thrilled to be able to collaborate with [Elisabeth Holder, Heir & President of Ladurée US] on designing a bespoke wedding cake inspired by one of my gowns.”
If you’re in New York City this month, you can check out the collection on display in the windows of Ladurée’s two NYC locations (Madison Avenue and Soho) now through January 26, or, if you’re dreaming of having them at your very own nuptials, you can special order them from the bakery throughout the year. Individual cakes are $20 each with full-sized cakes priced at $20 per guest (minimum 40 guests).
As for the rest of us, we can get in on the magic with a box of macaroons, which will be available as a six-pack ($24), a small cube of 45 ($166), a medium cube of 80 ($275), and a large cube of 125 ($425).
You’ll have to act fast, though — once they sell out, they’re gone for good!
