The perfect wedding cake to suit your theme
As well as having to taste like a dream, how your wedding cake looks is vital to think about when planning your special day! We know your to do list is miles long, so here are some stunning wedding cakes you can take inspiration from in all shapes, sizes and wedding themes.
Rustic themed weddings are all about understand features, so naked or semi naked cakes are always a favourite! To add a bit of decoration to your cake, try adding berries and native blooms or a ganache drizzle. You can even place the cake on a wooden block or barrel to enhance the rustic vibe of the day.
Or abandon tradition completely and ditch the traditional cake all together! Opt for a square cake or a cluster of decorated cupcakes on tiered stands for a pretty alternative.
For this theme, take inspiration from your flower arrangements and the natural surrounds of your venue. For a boho vibe, unsymmetrical and creative textures look beautiful. This is easily created with fresh flowers and foliage or you can up the ante with dream catchers, lace or feathers for some added quirk. Like rustic weddings, a naked or semi naked cake with a smear of buttercream looks amazing!
Keep it simple and sophisticated with a classic white tiered wedding cake, complete with ivory embellishment and a simple floral arrangement. For this theme, a paired back look works best.
Think lashings of florals for a sophisticated, fairytale feel. One way to achieve these romantic vibes is to stick to a classic, white tiered cake but instead of a smooth fondant finish, choose a textured, imperfect ivory icing. Now you have decided on the base, embellish it with delicate roses in a pale pink or lilac. This textured detailing creates a whimsical feel that steps away from perfection but also adheres to tradition with it's classic colour scheme.
Another option to think about is a painted cake. Where flowers are delicately painted on to smooth ivory fondant, creating an intricate and playful design that is sure to be unique and stun your guests.
The great thing about a luxury theme is that it can be interpreted in a variety of ways. Whether it is sophisticated and minimal or over the top and glamorous. No matter what, a sure winner is a multi-tiered masterpiece, complete with opulent flourishes. Switch up the classic colour scheme and add a pop of sparkle with gold leaf, glitter or even a luxe matte block colour finish.
A beachside wedding allows you to be creative with how you want to decorate your venue and your cake! Options include minimal with marble, lashings of florals, wave-like details or over run with shells, starfish or coral embellishment. You could even bring in some brown sugar around the bottom to add a 'sand' like texture.
Get inspired by your own surroundings with this theme. Foliage greens, earthy browns, ivory, pale pink and lilac tones set the scene for this whimsical affair. A naked chocolate cake with minimal detailing, embellished green foliage and tiny flowers is a dream.
