Cake Inspiration for 2015
Need some cake inspiration for your upcoming nuptials? Check out a few very-awesome ideas!
1) Amaretto Cream Wedding Cake
If you like the idea of hard liquor in your wedding cake, one made with Amaretto may be exactly what you want! Created with Amaretto batter, buttercream frosting and apricot glaze, try a cake inspired by “fine China” that includes frosting and fondant shaped to look like ribbons and bows. Delicious.
2) Tiered Poppy Seed Wedding Cake
Ideal for at-home or otherwise small weddings, try stacking two layers for serving up to 25 guests! Use an upside-down candy dish to support said layers, and go for poppy seeds…or not!
3) Dogwood Blossom Wedding Cake
A cake made with white satin frosting and smooth blackberry filling, this cake also includes white fondant dogwood blossoms. An elegant option for a springtime reception, this cake is best made with pre-purchased white-rolled fondant. It’ll save you a lot of time!
4) Pansy Wedding Cake
If you love, love, love peaches, a pansy wedding cake is just what the wedding planner ordered. Think peach filling, yellow cake, American cream cheese frosting, and crystalized pansies. Use orange, yellow and white pansies, or whatever combination you like that goes with your wedding theme.
5) Chocolate Velvet Groom’s Cake
While groom’s cakes aren’t always served at weddings, having an alternative to the bride’s cake is a nice touch. A chocolate cake with nut-tastic pecan filling is sure to wow guests.
6) Bridesmaids Baby Cakes
Small cakes personalized with each bridesmaid’s initials, this option is best with white-on-white frosting for formal weddings, or monochromatic hues. Contrasting colors are ideal for more casual affairs.
7) Peaches and Cream Wedding Cake
Add lovely fondant peach blossoms to a white cake for a beautiful look. If making this cake ahead of time, chill it for up to two days, or freeze it for up to two months.
8) Small Tiered Cluster Cakes
Think tiny, tiered treats with 3-inch rounded bases for an elegant, intimate engagement party, dinner or tea. Try cutting a baked layer cake into three graduated circles with cutters, then stack them on a wire rack and coat them with poured fondant. Beautiful.
9) Garden Bridal Cake
A stunning option for smaller, less-formal ceremonies, add a gorgeous bouquet of fresh flowers and blue or yellow ribbon for a delightfully-summery display.
10) Blue Rose Wedding Cake
Love the blue rose look? Add these specially-dyed flowers to a white cake for one amazing visual!
