I admit it, I have a SERIOUS sweet tooth! Here, at A Splendid Occasion, we love searching the web for unique wedding cake designs, as well as options for those that want something a little different than a wedding cake.
The opportunities are endless for those that want a wedding cake. You can change the shape, color, texture, flavor, and also add your one of a kind cake topper. Once you find a professional in your area, they will be able to let you know what types of neat tricks they have up their sleeve. Not only are wedding cakes one of the most enjoyable parts of planning a wedding, you also get to taste them too! This is also a good way to get your groom more involved ;)
The most common wedding cake shape is round, but there are many more to choose from, you can also mix up the shapes for each layer. Check out this unique shaped cake:
Texture, ah! One of my favorite things on a wedding cake. Nothing adds more interest that a 3D metallic lace design or fondant rose on the side of a cake. Subtle or not, texture is important to add that extra “wow” factor to your wedding cake.
The color you choose for your wedding cake is a big decision, I know! But as a bride – you can choose what ever color you like!
Last but not least is the cake flavor! Of course it must be delicious, but you also want to think about what your guests like. Everyone has had a white cake and chocolate cake before, so why not mix it up? If you love carrot cake – do it! Try red velvet, lemon, banana, almond butter, or strawberry too. If you are really brave – try a spice cake for a fall wedding. Your guests will be more inclined to try a unique cake flavor at your wedding, where it’s free!
Another great idea is to try different flavors for each layer of your cake. It will give your guests the opportunity to try multiple flavors.
For those of you that want something really outside of the box – forget the wedding cake all together! Try cupcakes, mini cakes, cakes made of your favorite cookies, donuts, etc. Your guests will certainly be impressed!
