#5. Modern geometric cake
It starts out fairly standard: five round tiers and crisp white icing. But this dessert takes a turn for the unexpected with a contemporary geometric pattern and a shock of hot pink. The eye-catching glaze gets its vivid hue from cactus-pear puree, which also happens to be delicious in margaritas (consider them for signature cocktails). Inside, consider pairing vanilla cake with lime-curd filling.
