Wedding Cakes


My last post on wedding favors/treats made me realize that I haven’t written anything related to the sweetest element in a wedding (besides the first kiss, of course. And the first dance. And oh, the wedding vows too…): the wedding cake.

The very first thing I look for the moment I enter the reception hall is the wedding cake. I love seeing how the couple has decided to interpret their “love story” through their cake. It’s not unusual to see cakes that really tell a story, you know. Some literally, even. There was one cake I saw on TV when the couple asked that their first meeting–in some bar–be “recreated” on their cake. Fun!

If you want to see what I’m talking about, check out this post on Our One Heart. This couple obviously liked Star Wars, don’t you think?

The wedding cake can actually set the theme of your wedding or help carry out your theme. Sometimes, it doesn’t even have to be cakes. Cupcakes have become very popular at weddings these days.

One couple on Polka Dot Bride wanted to do away with usual wedding traditions, and so they got rid of the wedding cake and did wedding cupcakes (from Sprinkles Cupcakes) instead. And if I must say, their table spread looked really yummy.

And speaking of spreads, check out this dessert spread on Bellissima Vita Weddings. Technically, this was for a birthday party, but this is something you can definitely do for your wedding.

Where you put your cake is just as important. With This Ring Weddings had some very pretty Clara French cake stands which you can use for your wedding–and after.

Want something less ornate and more modern? How about something industrial? Bellissima Vita Weddings also featured this. It’s a galvanized metal cupcake stand–for your own wedding cupcakes.
