Simple Wedding Cakes


Sometimes simple says it best. You might choose a simple wedding cake because you prefer a minimalist approach, or because you like you like to stick with the basics when it comes to cake, or even because you are interested in showcasing a particularly fancy flower or cake topper, simple wedding cakes never go out of style. The basic, stacked, white wedding cake, frosted in a smooth coating of buttercream or covered in a snowy blanket of fondant, may hide beautiful flavors and colors beneath its exterior – the best of both worlds. Or maybe you and your groom prefer the traditional “white cake, white frosting” approach – or “chocolate cake, chocolate frosting” – after all, simple doesn’t necessarily mean traditional. On the other hand, a simple cake may be the perfect way to showcase a special caketopper or flower that has personal meaning for you. A topper that shows your style or a hobby that you and future hubby share becomes all the more visible when it doesn’t need to compete with a fancy cake. Maybe you have a family heirloom that can nestle atop your cake. Alternatively, some dazzling orchids or floppy peonies may be all the statement that you need to make. A simple cake need not be boring, after all.
