Winter weddings are all about style and sophistication. There are plenty of ways to carry out this theme from modern metalic wedding cakes to old english berries -or both.
Be prepared for hungry bellies…
This masterpiece from Ann’s Designer Cakes is a beautifully made unusual wedding cake. The circular tiers are very fitting for the theme as they slightly resemble really tasty looking snowballs. White and red usually hint at festivities and the fact the cake maker has used roses to adorn the design makes it really romantic looking.
No winter wedding would be complete without some sparkle and what better place to showcase some glitz than in your cake? This creation from Baked Cupcakery is so glam and we love the floral additions. If you are having a red-carpet worthy reception, we think this cake would fit in perfectly.
Apple Charlotte cake makers have really brought winter home with this three tier cake covered in delicious chocolate icing. The rough spreading of the icing gives it a rustic look and we love the twigs and berries as a finishing touch. The icing on the top tier brightens the design and makes it the perfect winter wedding cake.
This deep purple and ivory wedding cake from Rosalind Miller is super wintery and has really pretty fondant icing detail in the shapes of leaves and reindeer. These colours are super festive and the shadow design gives just enough detail to have all your guests talking.
If you really want to impress your guests, why not have a magnificent wintery wonderland made as your cake, just like this one from Bryson’s of Keswick. We challenge anyone to find a cake with more of a winter theme than this one. The icicles look utterly delicious and we love the cute people (and penguin) models which have been added.
If you’re more of a biscuit couple, why not have a wedding cake alternative and go for gingerbread? The intricate detail on each house-front is super cute and would complement any winter or festive theme perfectly. You could go with any colour scheme on a cake like this and get really adventurous with the design.
Mistletoe is the epitome of Christmas, and what better way to represent marriage than with the one leaf that symbolises a kiss. We love the simplicity of this cake by Rosalind Miller and the clean cut icing which would really suit a simplistic winter wedding so nicely.
Silvers and greys are often associated with winter themes and this cake from Cakes by Potts has all the shades needed for a stylish wedding cake. The ruffle effect on the first tier is super pretty and we love the way the colour turns from light to dark. Each tier has a slightly different design, but is still subtle enough to stay chic and modern. And don’t even get us started on those macaroons, they look so lush.
Ginger and Cacao have created a cake so delicious looking, we could eat it through the screen. The best thing about this cake is the rich berry colouring of the icing which circles each tier. Deep purples and reds are a super pretty trend for winter cakes and the flowers are the perfect finishing touch to this understated, but gorgeous sweet treat.
Gold is a very glamorous colour and often used in the theme of winter weddings. This cake by Meadowsweet has glamour oozing from its tiers and the white and gold contrast on its décor is super pretty. We love how royal this looks – If you want to stand out from all the other weddings, this cake need to be yours.
Metallic colours are a huge trend this year and they don’t get much better than this cake from Pret-a-Cake. The combination of gold, rose gold and fluffy white fondant is so stylish – your guests won’t be able to take their eyes off of it. Have your black-tie reception go down in history with this show-stopping metallic wedding cake.
This cake fits the brief down to a T. It is simple, in a frosty white colour, with just a few pieces of dark fruit covered in light icing sugar to add a wintery effect. We would love to see this edible beauty as the centre of an all-white winter wedding.
If you’re having a fairy tale day, this cake could be your enchanting Disney themed dessert. It is truly magical and a magnificent five tiers tall. Your guests will be toying with whether to dance to the Disney wedding songs or eat the delectable cake… (Our guess is that the cake will win.)
These beautiful cupcakes by Charlotte Emily Cake Design have winter wedding written all over them. The lace detail gives them a stunning texture and the silver beads in the centre of the flowers add the glamour that all winter wedding cakes need. A tower of these lace wedding cakes would look more than stunning at your wedding.

Winter never looked so good… We are in total awe of this snowflake dessert table from Couture Cakes. If you ever wanted to drop your guests’ jaws, this is how to do it. It has been made with class and huge attention to detail and quite frankly we can’t stop staring at it.
Black wedding cakes are rare, and we cant seem to understand why when they can look this beautiful! Rosalind Miller have created a really bold and elegant wedding cake with perfectly pretty floral adorning. The looseness of the strung flowers gives it a casual feel which is smartened up by the daring colour - we like.
Fancie Buns Cakery had us all gasping for breath when we saw this wonderful wintery cake. The detailed floral texture on the bottom tier is so perfectly done and looks almost too good to eat. The subtle metallic shine is classy and sophisticated – we are big fans of this.
Wedding cakes don't always have to one large cake, lots of couples opt for towers of cute cupcakes, just like these ones from Bay Tree Cakes. The ice blue colour and pretty snowflake detail make them perfect for winter months and even more perfect to eat.
Emerald green is a gorgeous colour to use in weddings, especially in the way it’s used for this cake design. Every other tier is textured which works beautifully with the pretty lily flowers that alternate sides. If you are having a traditional winter wedding, finish it off with a cake just like this one.

Snowflakes are one of the prettiest things about winter and this cake by Couture Cakes has completely embraced them. The way the snowflake designs zig-zag their way down the six tiers of this cake is gorgeous and blends the full tiers with the cupcake ones perfectly.
This is one of the most festive wedding cakes ever, made by Bay Tree Cakes. The pinecones and oranges represent the best time of the calendar year and we are loving it. The slight shine to the icing, and cute tea-lights add to the look and we can't wait to dig in here.
The glitz and sparkle on this cake really makes it stand out and it looks even more spectacular with the top tier resting above on a silver metal cake stand, adorned with pretty diamantes. The Gatsby style feather that tops the cake is a chic finishing touch a striking winter wedding cake.

This cake from Fancie Buns Cakery is perfect for a real English country wedding in the winter. The ivory colour needs nothing more than the three groups of roses which accompany it, and the tree bark cake stand is an ideal way to draw attention to this truly tasty sight.
Black cakes may not be your first thought when it comes to the wedding cake, but that was before you set your eyes on The Gifted Heart Cakes ‘Opera Cake’ creation.
