Themed Wedding Cakes

 

A themed wedding cake may be just what you’re looking for to set your cake and reception apart. While a themed cake would be a natural fit for a wedding that also invokes a theme – say an “Alice in Wonderland” wedding, or a renaissance wedding – a bride and groom may also choose a theme for their cake based upon the a favorite amusement park ride or a preferred hobby, a favorite location, or a season or holiday. For the couple enjoys the daring fun of an amusement park ride, we’ve seen cakes that immortalize attractions like Disney’s Splash Mountain – fun! Likewise, the bicycling-enthusiast couple might prefer a cake that shows a mountain bike ride. Less specific would be the couple who incorporate images and items from the ocean into a beach cake, which might include gum paste shells and star fish, sand-like or pearly finish, and maybe a sand castle topper. Finally, if your wedding takes place near a beloved holiday or season, like the Fourth of July, or autumn, or Christmas time, consider incorporating themes that echo those holidays or times of the year. A July wedding cake might be decorated with stars and sparklers, while autumn might show off colorful marzipan leaves and chocolate twigs and acorns. Christmas might inspire the use of traditional garnets and greens, or cool and snowy blues and silvers. If there is a theme that you love, consider celebrating it with your wedding cake. It will make your day even more memorable, for both you and your guests.

Snowman Couple Wedding Cake

snow-man-winter-couple

After sweltering and nearly melting in last week's heat wave, I had to find a cake that made me think of cooler temps, and this super cute Snowman Couple cake is it!

I love the simplicity of the cake itself – just white frosting and some gorgeous snowflakes accented with red berries which make the whole cake just pop!

But what really made me smile were the adorable snow people standing atop the snowy white cake. Seriously – how cute are they, dressed in their snowperson wedding best? Who knew Frosty could be so handsome? Read More

How fun is this cake if you were thinking about having a Christmas in July wedding? It's kind of perfect, really.

Now I'm not sure how many people have a Christmas in July theme for their wedding, but it would be a lot of fun especially when it's a million degrees outside. Your guests could be enjoying a fun winter wonderland complete with this red, white, and pink creation.

I especially love that they've used the red and white Read More

Sushi Wedding Cake

Sushi Wedding Cake

Time for another fabulous themed cake. This one falls in the “juxtaposition of things that definitely don’t remind you of cake, but it’s so pretty you can’t help yourself” category.

I think this cake is absolutely beautiful. The Japanese characters are flawless, and the gumpaste flowers are incredibly lifelike. But the star of the show is the assortment of gumpaste sushi that adorns the top of the cake.

Tiffany Blue Wedding Cake with White Flowers

Tiffany Blue Wedding Cake with White Flowers

I love when old things are new again.

I remember when I was growing up that there was really no such thing as a stacked wedding cake.  It was the era of plastic columns and rigid structural work.  The first few times that I saw the rig that held cakes together, it was kind of like strolling “backstage” at Disney: the magic was gone.  The Mickey Head was off the guy, and he was Read More

Cinderella Castle Wedding Cake

You know we love us some Disney here at A Wedding Cake Blog.  In fact, as I write this, I am entertaining a visit on Wednesday to Epcot and reliving a jaunt to Magic Kingdom last week!  Sigh.  I heart living in Florida.

But I didn’t come here today to make you green with envy.  Oh no.  I came to show you a FABULOUS cake.

DisneyRob tapped me on the shoulder a while back and asked me if I’d like to feature his cake on our blog?  And I said, Read More

Pastel Thai Inpired Wedding Cake

Thai Inspired Wedding Cake

Erica of  Erica O'Brien Cake Design takes us in a decidedly unexpected direction with today's Thai-inspired cake.

I have seen some really beautiful cakes that pull from Asian inspiration, but most of the time, they featured deep, bright colors. But with this cake, which was featured in a stylized shoot, we see beautiful Thai design elements approached with the light, deft touch of pastel.  And it works beautifully.  I absolutely love the stacked fondant Thai arches, and the way that Erica alternates a couple of gold layers into the mix.  And the sweet flower blossoms, as well as the gold-tinged peony, are breathtaking.  She even plays with Read More

Apple Wedding Cake Redux

Martha Stewart Apple Cake

This is one of my all-time favorite cakes that I’ve featured.  Why am I providing you with a re-run today, you ask?  A couple of reasons:

1. A cake loved should be shared more than once.

2. We will never forget.

So today, although I will not dwell on what September 11 has come to mean to Americans as well as others around the world, I do offer you this apple cake Read More

Fondant Ice Cream Pop Cake

And so, it is upon us.  That time of year that Floridians hate the most.  While the rest of you are flaunting your about-to-dip-into-crispness temperature, we continue to swelter. And since making hay while the sun shines sounds incredibly boring, I’ll embrace my lot, Sunshine State Style – with a trip to the beach and an ice cream treat.

I’ve said it before:  Erica O’Brien is a cake goddess. Check out this simply, stunningly adorable Ice Cream Pop Cake that she came up with.  Her inspiration? Read More

White on White Seashell Wedding Cake

I hope you aren’t tired of beach-inspired wedding cakes, because I probably never will be.

I know that I’ve featured my fair share of wedding cakes that incorporate ocean elements over the last couple of years, like this Teal Seashell Wedding Cake from a wedding in Key West.  Well, today’s cake has kind of an interesting story, too.

This cake was made for a recent wedding at Read More

Happy Ending Wedding Cake

Happily Ever After Cake-001

Those with any sense know that “And They Lived Happily Ever After” signifies not the end of the story, but the beginning.

Today, we feature another beautiful cake by Jenniffer at Cup A Dee Cakes in Tunnel Hill, Georgia.  Clearly, Jenniffer knows this secret, and so does the couple for whom she made this beautiful cake.

So there are lots of fun things to love here.  First, be sure to read Jen’s original blog post about how she got that pretty silver lettering onto that cake without going all wonky and downhill like most of us would.  Next, don’t you love that vivid pop of Read More
