SOME PEOPLE believe that allowing same-sex couples the right to say "I do" will mean the end of marriage. We don't. But it may no longer matter what anyone thinks now that the Massachusetts Supreme Court has found - in a forceful opinion - that the state constitution allows for gay marriages. Gay marriages -for all intents and purposes - will now become a reality in the United States. People might as well get used to it. While the state's high court declined to give the gay plaintiffs in the case the marriage licenses they were seeking, and even gave the state legislature six months to respond to the court's ruling, time will work against conservatives who want to keep marriage a straight affair.

Like so many aspects of Chelsea Clinton's spectacular wedding Saturday, the cake was remarkable. The nine-tier vanilla cake, filled with dark chocolate mousse, frosted in white fondant, and decorated with 1,000 edible sugar flowers, was also gluten-free. That's because the former first daughter is allergic to the gluten found in most cakes and breads. The creation was a triumph for Frances and Maarten Steenman of La Tulipe Desserts in New York's Westchester County. The Steenmans, who have owned and run their business for nearly 12 years, specialize in all kinds of exquisite tarts, pies, cookies, and of course cakes, not just those that are gluten-free.

For her wedding Trista Rehn is getting a nice suit - a lawsuit, that is. Rehn, who showed off her sweet-girl-next-door-with-a-sexy-edge thing on ABC's Bachelorette, is being sued by her manager for $200,000. Entertainment Tonight reports that Kevin Allyn wants 20 percent of the $1 mil Rehn negotiated from ABC to air her wedding to Ryan Sutter, who won her heart on the "reality" show - and has subsequently helped her expand her bank account. The wedding - a $1 million affair ABC is paying for - and preparations for it have been featured in a series of specials, including one scheduled to air last night on the couple's bachelor parties.

With no air-conditioning breakdowns to fear, and no melting butter cream to stress over, autumn can be an ideal time to schedule a wedding. According to cake designer Polly Schoonmaker of Polly's Cakes in Portland, Ore., (www.Pollys cakes.com), the season brings not only more comfortable temperatures but flowers with deeper, richer tones that can beautifully complement wedding cakes.

The challenge, flung like an arrow, skillfully hit its mark. Artists who have tasted true love, bitter rejection, betrayal and bliss felt its barb and began to bravely reveal their hearts. "Target love with original art," Karen Chigounis, a curator at the Hopkins House art gallery, wrote in letters to 400 members of the Network of Visual Artists, a South Jersey group. "Create a valentine. " Chigounis and the other officials who run the gallery out of a historic stone house in Haddon Heights did not expect the flood of creative works they received.

Gina Nicolo perches on a Louis XV chaise at Miel Patisserie in Cherry Hill. She is fretting over the final details of the five-tiered cake that the shop's chef-owner, Robert Bennett, will create for her wedding on Saturday. The two agree on a pain de genes, a French pound cake, with rolled fondant piping accented with blown-sugar butterflies (because butterflies are the theme of her wedding) in pink and lavender (to match the bridesmaids' dresses). Then Nicolo, 31, has another idea.

The mere mention of wedding cakes most often conjures up visions of dry pound cake glued together with shortening-heavy icing. But there's good news. During the last decade - bakers and food experts say - an increasing number of couples with developed palates have begun putting more thought and work into choosing - or even making - their dessert of desserts. The range of choices and concepts showing up at weddings nowadays is challenging those old notions of frothy predictability.

  B   UZZ: Hey, Marnie, I saw this TV ad with Amber Rose drinking whipped-cream vodka. How do you make vodka out of whipped cream? Marnie: That's easy, Buzz - you don't. What you're thinking of is flavored vodka, where a neutral base spirit gets dolled up with fancy flavors. Advertising can blur the lines of what's an ingredient and what's an added "flavor. " Buzz: And have you seen that "wedding cake" vodka? Is wedding cake even a flavor? Heck, my wedding cake was made out of beef jerky.

WHEN advocates of same-sex marriage pushed their case in the courts of both public opinion and law, they made sure to read the following language from that little card provided to them by the tolerance police: "No one will be forced to violate their religious beliefs if Adam can marry Steve and Madame can marry Eve. " Much like the Miranda warnings that became famous after the Supremes decided that magic words were all that were needed to protect the...

Everyone knows Cindy Rollins Hertneck, or someone like her: The baker. You want her at your party. Sure, there's her scintillating conversation, but you are really counting on her to walk through the door with a fabulous cake or batch of signature cookies. Hertneck, a former fourth-grade teacher from Merchantville, tiptoed into a more public role by baking a groom's cake and mini-wedding cakes for her daughter's wedding last November. At the reception, her niece Katie mentioned that she'd be getting married in July and wondered if her aunt would bake her cake.

More and more couples, including gay and lesbian ones, are going that route, buying wedding and civil union ceremony packages and getting built-in honeymoons at the same time. Carnival played cupid last year to more than 2,000 couples who purchased its various wedding deals, and expects a 10 percent increase this year, says the cruise line's spokesman, Vance Gulliksen.

By Ellen Scolnic and Joyce Eisenberg On Friday, Prince William of Wales will marry Catherine Middleton. This wedding of the century will be watched by millions and chronicled by thousands. But even though the royal wedding is much grander than others, the basic decisions involved are the same. For example, today's young couples have to decide whether to have a trendy destination wedding, a stripped-down eco-conscious event, or something more in keeping with tradition. And it's no surprise that William and Kate went traditional.

You could take all of the raw material from Monday night - half hour backstage, three hours on stage, 15 cupcakes to decorate, one wedding cake, autograph signing until the stroke of midnight - and edit it down to 22 minutes. After all, the actual Cake Boss show does 90 hours of filming for each 22-minute episode, according to the boss himself. But the 1,800 fans who filled the Merriam Theater for "Bakin' with the Boss" (a misnomer as there was no baking, not a vat of fondant in sight, and a mere sampling of modeling chocolate)
