This is one of our favorite parts of a wedding- I try to only eat cake if it's really worth it, and nine times out of ten a piece of wedding cake is really worth it. Here are some of the more unique cakes we saw last year, from white and textural to whimsy and colorful:
This textural white wedding cake was a compliment to the linens, also monochromatic and textured.
Our play on a whimisical garden theme, this poppy colored wedding cake was adorned with anenomes (bestow my heart how I love these flowers and they're only available in spring) and sat in its own garden.
We're all about making sure the cake is a statement piece- that means the placement and how it's displayed. For this shabby chic wedding we used a stone-looking table with a glass top rather than a traditional linen.
Cupcakes and a wedding cake on one table is always beautiful, especially when you glam up a rustic look. The cake had faux bark fondant that mimicked the invitations, and the wood box stands were a lovely addition if we do say so ourselves. And don't get me started on cake linens- if you're going to splurge on at least one specialty linen, do it for the cake. One of the top spots for photo opps, and there's your wedding tip for the day.
Faux bois is a modern trend that I don't mind one bit, especially in monochromatic tones.
