Your wedding cake should be just as special as your wedding dress.  This is a piece of the wedding picture that tells a story about the bride and groom. It reflects your style, the theme of your wedding, and sometimes it tells the story of how you met. The cake is the second most remembered thing about a wedding. Here are some one-of-a-kind wedding cakes that can inspire some great ideas for your wedding!

You can choose a classical look with modern touches like this three-tiered cake shown in the picture above. This look consists of smooth surfaces, delicate details, and punches of bright color. The button and scroll design lends a modern touch, yet the overall look is timeless. Your wedding cake should be the masterpiece of your wedding. No two wedding cakes should look alike and each one can be an expression of the bride and groom’s styles seamlessly blended together.

Not every wedding cake needs to be traditional or classic in style and design.  A truly one-of-a-kind wedding cake allows you to express yourself, show a little creativity and even tell a story. The cake pictured above would be a great design for a Victorian-themed wedding or even a modern wedding with a funky/frivolous air.

The cake pictured above is vibrant in color, and has a unique shape and style that would also look great at a modern, retro-styled wedding. It reflects a fun, casual feeling and you could play with the colors to match your wedding’s theme. It is a great example of a couple thinking outside the box and creating a masterpiece that they will remember for the rest of their lives.

One-of-a-kind wedding cakes are a great way to tell a story about who you are as a couple or even how you met.  Did you meet your intended while on a trip to France? Why not decorate your cake with fleur- de-lis or images or have it made in the shape of the Eiffel Tower? Are you either music teachers or musicians? Have your baker add golden musical instruments to your cake’s design.

There are so many ways to get creative with your wedding cake that your imagination should be the only limit. Create your own masterpiece and make your one-of-a-kind wedding cake as unique as the two of you.

 

Five Wedding Cake Ideas for Your Special Day

July 21, 2010

All eyes are on the bride during most wedding ceremonies, but after the guests have relocated to the reception area the first thing that everyone wants to do is check out the cake! Wedding cakes aren’t a new tradition; they’ve actually been an important aspect of wedding celebrations since the days of the Roman Empire. Times have changed, of course, and wedding cakes are much more elaborate today than they ever were back in Roman times, but they remain a focal point of wedding festivities.
Most couples have dozens—if not hundreds—of decisions to make when planning their wedding and reception. The bride’s biggest hurdle is usually the task of finding the perfect wedding gown, but once she’s located her dream dress it’s time to think about the cake! Wedding cakes can be simple or complex, chocolate or vanilla, big or small—the choices are almost endless, but here are some popular cake trends and wedding cake ideas that will come in handy as you decide on your ideal cake.

Fondant Wedding Cakes
Fondant, a confection that’s used as a filling or coating for pastries, candies, and other sweets, is a popular alternative to the traditional buttercream icing that’s often used to frost wedding cakes. Fondant has an almost dough-light consistency which allows it to be rolled out and used to cover a cake.
Thanks in part to reality television shows that profile bakeries; rolled fondant has experienced a recent surge in popularity. Fondant gives wedding cakes a sophisticated, elegant appearance, and it’s able to be decorated in multiple ways. Some bakeries and decorators are extremely talented with fondant, giving you the ability to have a truly unique wedding cake.

Square Wedding Cakes
Beautifully-decorated three tiered cakes that consist of round layers remain a traditional favorite of many brides, but square cakes have also made their way into the wedding limelight. Square wedding cakes can consist of layers—or tiers—that sit directly on top of one another, but they’re often placed on cake stands which separate each layer from one another. Not only does a cake stand give the cake a taller appearance, it provides more room for decorations, such as flowers.
Square wedding cakes can be as simple or as intricate as you desire because they can also be decorated in so many different ways. Rolled fondant is always an option with a square cake, as is buttercream icing in multiple colors. A square wedding cake can be one solid flavor, but some couples prefer to offer variety to their wedding guests and select a different type of cake for each tier.

Wedding Cupcakes
Wedding cupcakes are a trendy replacement for traditional wedding cakes for quite a few reasons. It’s normal for the wedding cake to act as decoration, but cupcake towers are a fun twist on the expected standard. Cupcakes can even be iced in your wedding colors in order to match your bridal party’s clothing!
Offering a wide variety of cupcakes at your wedding reception gives your wedding guests the ability to choose their own favorite flavor of cake for dessert. They’re also a great choice if there will be children at your reception, and a server won’t have to waste time slicing the cake.

Chocolate Wedding Cakes
In the past, chocolate wedding cakes were almost unheard of, but the times are changing and more and more couples are deciding on chocolate wedding cakes. Besides, who says wedding cakes have to be white? Your wedding day is supposed to be your special day, so if you prefer chocolate over vanilla you shouldn’t be afraid to have a chocolate wedding cake.
If you’d like to stick with tradition and have a white wedding cake for the sake of your family, you can always have a second smaller cake or a groom’s cake that is iced in chocolate.

Fruit Topped Wedding Cakes
Organic fruits and vegetables have become popular in recent years thanks to the “going green” movement, and what better way to eat fruit than on top of a cake? Fruit topped wedding cakes are becoming extremely popular because the fruit itself acts as decoration.
Fresh strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and grapes are good choices when thinking of fruits to use on your wedding cake. The fruit can be placed on each individual cake layer or only on the top—the choice is up to you. If you’d like to incorporate fruit into your cake without altering its appearance, ask your baker about the option of a fruit filling.
