Bow of real ribbon

You probably haven’t seen this much yet: a bow of pure silk or other textile tied around the wedding cake. Choose a large bow or a more subtle ribbon with or without a detail of real flowers; in a uniform color or as a striking contrast. A wedding cake in this style not only radiates calm and simplicity, it is also very elegant.

Buttercream flowers

May it be even more striking and do you appreciate art? Then go with a wedding cake decorated with buttercream flowers. The technique is not simple and it is a time consuming job. So keep in mind that you can’t just knock on every bakery’s door and that you may have to reserve a little more budget for your wedding cake. However, we believe it is well worth it!

Gold

A touch of rich gold (or a little bit more!) on your wedding cake is very modern and stylish. Use it as a beautiful detail or as a real eye-catcher by having a larger decoration placed on the cake. Greenery and flowers can also be covered with gold for an even more royal look. Golden details create a very clean and royal look to your wedding cake. Of course you can also replace gold with another metal color like silver, bronze or rose gold.

Painted flowers

Where the buttercream flowers create a more 3D effect, a floral decoration can also be created more subtly by having the flowers painted on fondant with edible paint. This creates a very artistic wedding cake that you can make even more striking by using real flowers and intense colors. No matter how bright you make it, the result is a playful and cheerful wedding cake that is also very photogenic.

Calligraphy

Do you have a beautiful wedding invitation or complete stationery set designed for your wedding? It doesn’t have to end on paper! Your wedding cake can also be beautifully decorated with a calligraphed text. For example, use a small part of your vows, a beautiful quote or the wedding text that you’ll receive as a couple. Consult with your baker and calligrapher to see if they can work together and have a very personal wedding cake on your wedding day.

Sugar flowers

Want your wedding cake to stand out even more and have more 3D effect? Sugar flowers are the answer! Beautifully stylized or more natural looking; sugar flowers have a breathtakingly beautiful effect on wedding cakes and can sometimes hardly be distinguished from the real thing. Generally, the look of these stunning wedding cakes is romantic, playful and feminine.
