Picking a Cake to Match your Wedding Decor
When it comes to weddings, everyone knows how important the wedding cake is. Not only is it the basis for one of the most iconic moments of the day – the cutting of the cake – but the cake is a real focal point for the décor of the room too (and when done right, will taste great too!)
Thankfully, in recent years the wedding cake has had a bit of a revamp! Long gone are the plain old royal icing 3 tier white iced cakes (filled only with fruit cake) *breathes a sigh of relief*. Now, we have patterns, colours, new shapes and exciting flavours to play with in our wedding plans. But, the big question is, how do I choose a cake that will tie in with my wedding theme?
Well, here at Cakenology we bake the tastiest wedding cakes in London and can make totally bespoke cake designs to perfectly match the style of your London wedding venue! We’ve put the spotlight on four styles of wedding cakes we’ve made that can go with a variety of different wedding themes.
*But, remember, if you don’t see one you love here we can make a totally unique cake just for you too!*
The Naked Wedding Cake
First up is the simply stylish, pared back naked-cake. If you are opting for a more rustic décor then this cake is the perfect choice for your wedding. Three sumptuous tiers of moist vanilla sponge (or any flavour you desire) with the modern naked finish will look just beautiful in a country-style or barn wedding.
This modern design is very on trend for 2019 weddings and the fresh fruit makes this cake the perfect addition to a spring or summer wedding. We’re thinking DIY wooden decor, shabby-chic signage, textured foliage on the tables and fairy lights hanging over-head with your beautiful naked-cake centre stage.
A Traditional Wedding Cake – with a twist
The naked style wedding cake not your vibe? We love the idea of a more traditional iced cake (but with a twist) to suit your traditional wedding décor. The cascading hand-made icing flower petals make this 4-tier cake a real show stopper. The benefit of the icing finish means that you can mix up the flavours of the tiers too and have a different flavour on every level – perfect for a room full of guests with different tastes!
This cake is so versatile and we think it could fit in almost any London venue. The intricate design would make this cake the perfect match for crisp white linens and beautiful floral centrepieces.
Why not match your cake colour to the groom’s tie or the bridesmaid dresses to really tie your whole theme together? You could even pair the icing flowers on the cake to those in your bouquet to get your cake just right.
The Macaroon Tower Wedding Cake
Traditional not your wedding style? Embrace change and opt for the macaroon tower wedding cake in all its gorgeous, glamorous glory.
If your wedding décor is a little different, then you need a cake that is unique too! The cake tower stands on a freshly baked sponge cake tier in a flavour of your choice for all round yumminess on the day. Then, the whole affair is surrounded by freshly baked macaroons handmade by our patisserie chefs.
As always, you can totally personalise the colours to match the rest of your décor and we think this makes for a fabulous alternative to tradition!
The Illusion Cushion Wedding Cake
Have you got a huge wedding party coming to celebrate you tying the knot? Do they all love cake? Well then, this twist on tradition could be just the showstopper you are looking for! After all, it’s your big day, and your cake is going to be one of the most essential decorations and focal points for the day (after you of course). This beautiful, ornate cushion cake serves up to 180 people, perfect for a big family wedding.
We think this would suit a very luxurious wedding decor with golds and rich colours in the theme. The cushion cake also fits perfectly with an Indian wedding décor style. As always, you can customise all aspects of the cake and have a different flavour with unique buttercream fillings on every tier.
