5 Pretty Wedding Cakes

Since I’m trying to stay extra healthy, I’ve decided to look at pretty wedding cakes instead of eat them. It’s not as satisfying, but it’ll have to do.

The Knot released their top 50 wedding cakes, some of which were clear winners and some were nothing to rave about.

Here are my favorites from the bunch.

1) Bold Retro Pattern

This design would go well with a semi-casual themed wedding. The 3D bow is a fun alternative to a typical floral focal piece. The different shapes are also quirky, and fresh.

2) Staggered Tiers

I’m not so fond of asymmetrical wedding cakes, but this gently staggered arrangement gives the cake a graceful movement. I’m a big fan, as long as the tiers are not blatantly angled.

3) Ombre Coloration

I like the gradual transition that ombre brings to a wedding cake. This would be lovely for a monochromatic wedding scheme. With this design in particular, I would have liked a detail at the base of each tier to give the cake more interest– maybe ribbon, icing, lace– something.

4) Sugar Flower Power 

A handmade sugar bouquet can be an elegant focal point on a cake, as opposed to a traditional cake topper of the bride and groom. You can have the blooms match your wedding bouquet or the bridesmaid’s bouquet for a unifying look.

5) Buttercream 

No matter what, I want a yummy pretty wedding cake. Buttercream is the way to go to achieve the taste factor. And look how elegant it can look even without the fondant. I especially like the subtle striping.

I have leftover tiramisu birthday cake in the refrigerator from one of my favorite local bakeries. Surprisingly, I have resisted the temptation to devour it after this post. Barely.
