Wedding Cake Ideas

white octogon wedding cakeLooking for some brilliant wedding cake ideas?  If you are planning your wedding, you know that you need to think about the design of the hall, your dress and your reception, but have you thought about your cake?

Wedding cakes are no longer simple white towers ornamented with fondant! These days, wedding cakes are blooming in color and shape and you will discover that your wedding cake can be as lovely and unique as you are. What should you think about when you want to put some input into your cake design and what ideas are going to look great?

One thing that many brides are considering is designing their cakes to match the season. For instance, during winter, you might love a cake done up with pale blue icing and a white sprinkle of confectioner's sugar that will resemble a drift of snow.

On the other hand, if you are planning a wedding for the autumn, what about a cake that has lovely orange and yellow leaves stenciled over the warm yellow frosting? For spring, consider the use of pale green frosting and delicate flower petals strewn around on the surface of the cake, or even a vine made of frosting and dotted with darker green leaves. Summer could be a burst of flowers, or a blue design reminiscent of a beach.

When you are interested in having a wedding cake that is truly unique, consider the shape of the cake itself. Not every wedding cake needs to be three round tiers with a wedding cake topper. Instead, why not consider a cake with oval tiers, or one that is built from steeper rectangular tiers? You will find that the shape of the cake can very much determine what kind of impression it makes. Also consider a cake with a tier that is supported by a series of pillars, allowing you to see through the cake itself. This can be a very striking design that might suit your wedding a great deal.

People talk about building a cake, and one interesting idea is to get a cake that has some architectural features in common with your wedding venue. For instance, if you are going to be getting married in an elegant Gothic-style church, consider designing a cake with arching motifs and stained glass designs. On the other hand, if you are getting married in a more modern church, talk with your cake designer to see what kind of swooping designs might be appropriate for your cake.

Take some time and consider what kind of wedding cake is best going to suit your sensibility. Do not be afraid to let your wedding cake express your personality, whether you love the idea of a Halloween cake or one that is nearly Zen in its simplicity.  Hopefully this gave you some wedding cake ideas to think about.  You can view our wedding cake gallery for more great wedding cake ideas and also our wedding cake designs for pictures of cakes that includes directions of how they were made.
