Great Ideas For A Unique Wedding Cake
Published: 01 Aug 2007 - in cakes
Gone are the days when the mention of a wedding cake bought to mind the vision of a regular tiered oval with butter and cream icing. Today, couples want their wedding to be one-of-a-kind in every way possible, and that extends to the wedding cake as well. Although the traditional wedding cake still has its places and will always be popular, there are various ways in which you can make your wedding cake 'different'. Here are some simple but exclusive ideas for a unique wedding cake.
Shape of the wedding cake
Go for unusual shapes for your wedding cake instead of the regular round or rectangle. A heart shaped cake is great for romantics, whereas wedding cakes in the shape of flower petals will look different and are perfect if you are having a garden themed wedding.
Wedding Cake Flavours
Your wedding cake need not be of any one flavour. You can have different tiers in different flavours and can even choose to have various fillings in the cake to make it taste as good as it looks.
Cupcake Wedding Cakes
A great way to have a unique wedding cake, and save money at the same time, is to have cupcakes for your wedding cake. You can get cupcakes made in different flavours and then arrange these on tiers to make your wedding cake. Not only will your wedding cake be the talk-of-the-party, but your guests can choose whichever flavour they like. No more messy cake cutting and the cupcakes can also be used as part of the wedding favours.
Wedding Cake Frosting
Say goodbye to the traditional white frosting and hello to unusual frostings. From the dark and divine chocolate icing, to colors such as pink, red, or even purple; all goes as far as wedding cake icing is concerned. You can even get the baker to match your wedding cake frosting to your wedding décor or detail the icing to match your wedding gown!
