Wedding cake! When it comes to wedding cakes there are so many choices these days. First, you need to decide what the outside will look like, how many tiers, and what shape? Then there’s the inside what flavor, do we want different flavors per tier? Do I even want a cake? What about other desserts? Wait, hold up! We are going to stick with cake on this post. Haha. So we have teamed up with Natalie of Cake Envy for some pretty amazing Wedding Cake Ideas.
First up is a Tuscan Inspired Bas Relief cake with a lot of texture. The beauty of a Bas Relief cake like this is that there is no need for further embellishment. It’s stunning as is.
Next we have another Bas Relief Cake that is off white with a lot of texture and gold leafing. Again, it’s just beautiful all by itself.
This cake is unique in that it has two square base layers and two round top layers. A four-tier stunner that bodes a lot of layering and stenciling with a fondant press.
A little beauty I like to call white pearl is our next cake. This cake is on the fancier side and inspired by a bridal gown. Smaller cakes such as this one are perfect for more intimate celebrations.
Natalie likes to call this cake the Rustic Groove Cake. It’s literally the most versatile cake design and is requested often. The beauty of this cake is it’s like a blank canvas that you can decorate however you like. In this instance, we used flowers as decor.
The Crevasse Cake is up next! Natalie designed this cake because she loves flowers and wanted to create a cake where the flowers were the star. The cake also shows some gorgeous gold leafing on the sides.
Lastly, but most definitely not least is a Palette Paint Cake that has become a signature style for Natalie and very popular among brides. While growing up Natalie loved to paint, so this cake feels very natural for her to create. Accompanied by three smaller individual cakes to match, such a gorgeous little trio.
Trends and Advice
Now that we have seen all the pretty Wedding Cake Ideas, let’s chat about flavors! You will always have your traditional white, chocolate, or strawberry cakes. But with spring and summer approaching they call for light and fresh! We recommend lemon cake with raspberry mousse! Or a strawberries & cream cake (vanilla cake with fresh berries & white chocolate mousse). The options really are endless!
For couples planning for their wedding cake, one thing Natalie always advises is to design the cake of your dreams! Go into your consultation as though the price is not an issue. Once the cake is designed they may be surprised!
