There are many elements that make a wedding complete in its vision, but none are quite like the cake. The cake is the center of all centerpieces, the thing that everyone searches for upon entering a reception area. Due to the attention it grabs, there are many different options for your special day.
Traditionally, cakes are neutral in color, and have some sort of floral accent or lace detailing. If traditional elegance is your style, try a classic cake with lace detailing or a simple cake with lots of cascading flowers. Make it personal with a touch of color or texture.
If a traditional cake seems too vanilla, but you still like the classic tiered shape, try for a modern update on your big dessert with metallic touches or unexpected extras like a chevron print or a ruffle overlay.
Perhaps you want to make a bold statement in a completely unique way. Instead of having two separate cakes for the bride and groom, combine them into one extravant cake for an attention-getting conversation piece. This Scrabble cake is unlike any other and uses words that are significant to the newly-wed couple. Peacocks colors are a common theme for weddings but this cake topped with a fondant bird is creative and fun!
If cake isn’t your thing, opt for individual treats that are built into a cake shape. This can be done with playfully ombre colored cake balls or regal croquembouche, a French dessert that melts in your mouth.
With so many options out there, finding the dessert that best suits your big day is a piece of cake.
