Years ago I happened upon Martha Stewart's Wedding Cakes at St. Vinny's, but gorgeous as the cakes are, they are more inspirational (and aspirational) than practicable.  Just an FYI if any don't know about the book.

The first cake I ever made that was not from a box was a Maida Heatter recipe. Royal Viennese Walnut Torte from her Great Desserts book. I found the recipe card that I'd copied it on oh those 42 years ago - it was a library book. I don't have her cake book but you might want to check it out.  https://www.amazon.com/Maida-Heatters-Cakes-Heatter/dp/0836250745
