1) Amaretto Cream Wedding Cake

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!

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.

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.
