If there’s one thing that’s at least as hard to pick as your wedding gown, it’s your wedding cake. Between all the shapes, flavours, sizes and looks, picking the perfect cake can be somewhat of a hassle. Here are 8 ideas that might help you have a uniquely elegant cake.
1- Crepe Flowers
Most wedding cakes are decorated with flowers, and they’re gorgeous for it. But why not take it up a notch and have crepe-like petals cascading on your tiers? You could also match the flowers to your dress and add a touch of colour to an all-white cake!
2- Naked Cake
Simple cakes free of fondant are definitely amazing. Not only do they look ravishing with fruits decoration, but your guests will also be able to see exactly what they’re going to eat, and that’s really inviting!
3- Travel-inspired Layers
Did you meet your fiancé on a plane or when you were vacationing somewhere? Why not make it the theme of your wedding cake? Edible suitcases could replace the different tiers, bride and groom toppers could be sitting in a plane, and you could even transform your wedding cake into your dream destination!
If you truly want an elegant and romantic cake, lace should be your go-to choice. The intricate details could match your wedding dress, and it looks amazing with a coloured base.
For a simple wedding cake style, you should definitely add a touch of gold. Whether it’s by colouring just one layer, drawing gold flowers on your cake or even by having a bottom-ribbon touch for a modern twist. A bit of sparkle always does the trick!
6- Wedding Cupcakes
How about making your guests have not only a bite of your cake, but their own miniature one? You could have a small-sized cake to cut, and have your friends and family indulge in small and colourful wedding cupcakes!
Why stick to white with all the wonderful colours that are available? You could integrate your wedding colours in your cake by having gradient layers of ruffles. It’s a perfect mix between traditional and creative.
This kind of wedding cake is not for everybody, but if you’re an art-lover, you will definitely go for it. Just have your favourite piece of artwork painted on the fondant. Between Van Gogh, Klimt and so many others, you won’t be short on inspiration!
