When it comes to wedding cakes, you can really be as creative or traditional as you like. We hope the below ideas can help you decide of what sort of cake you’d like for your big day.
Adding some seasonal decorations
These can really help spruce up your cake by adding some eye-catching colour and detail. In summer, bright floral icing and decorations that contrast the colour of the cake itself can really make your cake pop. Whereas in winter, some beautiful detail can be added using snowflakes or a wrapping bow.
The traditional white wedding cake has been a staple wedding cake choice for a long, long time and still to this day is one of our favourites due to it’s simplicity and beauty. With that said, it is becoming ever more popular to have a vibrant colour used for wedding cakes. Especially in Spring and Summer, bright and floral colours are used to match the time of year and the beauty that nature brings. Pale blues and purples are also a strong choice during Winter to match the chilly theme. Alternating tier colours can also be a fun way to allow the bride and groom to choose a colour each.
Hand-drawn watercolours can add a really personal and jaw-dropping touch to your wedding cake. There are many talented artists that can illustrate anything you desire, from patterns of romantic symbols like hearts and flowers, to the initials of the happy couple. These will really ‘pop’ on a single solid coloured cake, adding a touch more personality.
Toppings with a difference
Traditional toppings such as berries and flowers will always be a popular and beautiful choice for your wedding cake. But why not mix it up a bit by topping your cake with luxury truffles or some delicious macaroons. You could instead opt for the classic, the icing sculpture of the bride and groom to top your fantastic cake!
