Taking the Cake: Standout Dessert Designs
December 19, 2014

Your cake design speaks volumes about your dreams for your big day, and in years to come you’ll likely forget the details of the place settings and your cocktail of choice, but your cake will hold a special place in the story of your first day as Husband and Wife.With as many options as there are wedding dress designs, choosing the perfect cake for your wedding day can be the stuff of dreams- or nightmares. We’ve narrowed our top selections down to a few Cinderella worthy cake designs. Whether simple and classic is your design of choice, or a bold and bright standout is what you’re coveting, taste-test a few of these saucy styles and give your imagination a whole new direction to run in!


Design Delights

Not for the faint of heart, these top picks are dotted, striped and painted to perfection. Mix polka dots and bold stripes for an inspired modern duo, or pump a classic color up a few notches with a trendy ombre design. Try out painted posies with a black stripe addition for an unexpected combination, or consider the once undervalued tie-dye print for a colorful wash. An adored new-comer to cake design, we’re in love with this season’s water color inspirations, which have effortlessly made their way to these frosted confections.


Fresh Florals

Incorporate freshly picked florals into your cake design for a romantic feel that breathes life into your wedding decor, or select an artfully done hand painted floral design that your guests are sure to ooh and ahh over. From just out of the garden creations to sugared blooms, a bride can never go wrong with a floral motif. With so many gorgeous colors to choose from, your floral design can be tailored to fit a seasonal wedding, or lend the inspiration behind your wedding colors. Choosing a wedding cake with a flowered design is not the easy way out when it comes to cake selection- with as many flower and color options as there are weddings in the spring, you’ll have a unique beauty to remember for anniversaries to come.


Bright Beauties

If neutrals tend to send you into a tailspin of boredom, have your way with standout colors and designs. From unexpected combinations like this neon-themed stunner, to bold patterns with show stopping floral additions, the options are endless when it comes to bright color schemes. It’s impossible not to end up with a one of a kind creation when dealing in technicolor. Leave the rules behind and play with color, you’ll be glad you did.


Simply Naked

Until recently, this decidedly chic stunner was but a nightmare to DIY inspired brides everywhere, but this dressed down confection is having a major moment in the wedding business. From stacked layers with light whispers of cream to sparsely coated ensembles with flashy florals, we predict this sweet trend is here to stay. With as many ways to make it your own, this low stress, high impact design is a no-brainer.
