Unconventional Wedding Cakes

 

In today’s wedding world, it seems that most wedding cakes are unconventional. It’s almost unconventional to have a white on white wedding cake! But in an unconventional wedding cake might refer to the design, the topper, or the flavors featured. Regarding design, one popular unconventional style today is the topsy turvy, asymmetrical design. Stacked cake layers give the illusion that the cake could spill over any minute, when in fact, the cake is balanced and level. Unconventional toppers are another way that a couple may make their cake unique. The couple who loves Angry Birds, for instance, can feature the adorable characters perched atop their cake. Can’t last a minute without your cell phone? There’s a wedding topper for that, too. Prefer Goth to Victorian? No problem. A talented baker can help you realize your dream cake. But you might opt for traditional design and toppers, and still find ways to be unconventional with flavors – even savory alternatives to wedding cakes, like “cakes” made of wheels of cheese, or layers of savory meet pies, might stand in for a conventional cake. So, express yourselves! In cake! And send us pictures.

Purple Wedding Cake with Flowers

Purple is my absolute favorite color. It’s the color of royalty and it’s my birthstone.

And had I given it much thought, I would have added purple to my wedding color scheme all those years ago. Like, maybe by having a purple wedding cake.

Just like today’s featured cake.

This lovely, muted purple cake is stunning. Read More

Gold and White Wedding Cake

As we creep through winter gray hues of January it seems like the perfect time to think about a shiny, metallic wedding cake!

If you’re looking to add some glitz and glamour to your big day, a metallic wedding cake might be the perfect way to do just that!

It doesn’t have to be over-the-top or garish, but even a slight metallic accent takes a plain white cake to a whole new level. Read More

Blue Lace Wedding Cake

If there’s one color I love to see on a wedding cake it is blue – specifically a light blue that was made famous by a particular jewelry company.

Today’s featured cake is that lovely shade of blue and the addition of a lace overlay piped onto the cake takes it to the next level for sure.

This cake is elegant and classic and it could also fill the role of “something blue” at the wedding. Read More

Dark Wedding Cake

As much as I love the traditional white wedding cake, every now and then it’s nice to mix things up and think about non-traditional cakes.

The idea of a black frosted cake might seem odd to some but I think it’s a great idea for an elegant winter wedding.

A black and gold cake would be a bit too dramatic in the middle of summer. Read More
