If you are looking for a wedding cake with romantic, yet elegant feelings that gives your reception a touch of vintage, a lace cake is for you. The above confection is an example of its kind, featuring all-white tiers and livened up with intricate details of lace patterns and fresh pinky blooms on top.


From avant-garde to country chic, just skip the bold patterns and add-ons in favor of subtle embellishments with all over sugar ruffles for a seriously elegant cake. The look of a ruffled cake is light and airy with very little added details. Finish it off with fresh flowers between each tier or a few sugar flowers on top then you have a perfect confection.

An all-white cake is anything but boring and it works for any style of wedding reception. If you love the look of sugar flowers, delicate lace piping, or fondant details, please choose an all-white (or cream!) palette for your dessert. You will be amazed at its result with a truly refined and tasteful look like this confection which includes five tiers covered in white fondant and simply decorated with sugar callas and ribbons.


This is a nonstop trend in which the exposed cake and its filling appeal to both the eyes and the stomach. It should be better if all layers are filled with seasonal fruits like apples, pears, persimmons or oranges like the above confection.


From gold to silver details, such kind of eye-catching cakes can be covered by a simple silver layer or added some metallic piped details for an elegant look. Your nuptials will become more romantic when the cake is joined with a little dainty rose gold accents or preppy copper stripes.


For those who like alternative styles, it will be a good choice to prepare deconstructed wedding cakes. Instead of a classic tiered cake, a cake bar with multiple colours and flavours and fancy toppings may surprise your guests at the party by its uniqueness.


Like an artwork, each painted cake can bring you a glimpse of artists’ spirit with marbleized cakes, stained-glass painted cakes and even Monet-inspired designs. All you need to have a perfect painted cake is free your mind for creation.
