Fabulous Wedding Cakes: How to Choose your Design

Think of your wedding cake as one of the key elements of your wedding décor and your wedding menu. As well as tasting delicious, it should look amazing, embracing the colour theme and style of your special day. Let’s get creating with some fantastic wedding ideas, taking a look at some of the things to consider when choosing the perfect design.

Consider your Wedding Theme

First things first, when deciding on the style of your wedding cake, it’s crucial to look at your overall theme, whether traditional and elegant, cool and contemporary or pretty and rustic. This overall look will help you decide on the shape and general style of your cake.

A classic cake might incorporate round, stacked tiers and perhaps a white base with beautiful icing and fresh flowers.

For something a little more contemporary, you might have unusually shaped tiers and perhaps a coloured icing base. Alternatively, you might embrace the summer months and the beautiful surroundings with a more rustic semi-naked cake

Incorporate your Colour Scheme

Your cake gives you a wonderful opportunity to show off your colour scheme, highlighting the beautiful shades you have chosen for your bridesmaid dresses and your flowers.

You might opt for a white cake that you then decorate with beautiful flowers.

Or, you might bring colours together. This cake would be perfect if your bridesmaids were in pink and your groomsmen in navy. Why not consider a coloured icing? Dark colours like black can be stunning, particularly if you’re having an autumn or winter wedding.

Be Inspired by Fashion

Lace, embellishment and other details from your wedding dress can be used to inspire the design for your wedding cake.

Here we see a lace pattern featured on a cake with the most intricate icing and the design on this spectacular cake surely comes from stunning embellishment on a wedding dress.

Add some Florals

Flowers are a popular wedding cake decoration, whether you decide on fresh blooms or intricate sugar flowers. Once again, be inspired by your wedding colour scheme and your natural surroundings, bringing the outside in with seasonal choices.

Sugar flowers can be absolutely spectacular…while fresh flowers are also a beautiful choice and can be exactly the same as those in your bridal and venue flowers.
