Winter Wonderland Wedding Cakes!
One of the best things about getting married in December, January, or February? There are plenty of fun seasonal touches to incorporate in your wedding. Case in point: There’s nothing more festive than a winter wedding cake! Whether you pick red and green flowers to decorate a Christmas wedding cake, glittery gold frosting for a New Year’s Eve wedding, or pinecone cake toppers.
BUTTERCREAM: After several years of fondant cover cakes being all the rage the organic look of a buttercream frosted cake is making a major comeback. Couples are modernizing these cakes by selecting bright vibrant colors, accessorizing with beautiful blooms, and adding different texture options.
NAKED CAKES: As we discussed in another recent blog Naked Cakes are popping up at casual weddings and formal events alike.
HAND PAINTED: Hand painting is another versatile trend, lending itself to a boho-hippie vibe as well as more luxurious elegant affairs. This is a great way to showcase the motif on your invites or on your dress.
DECADENT FLAVORS: Gone are the days where vanilla or chocolate are the only options couples would request for their special day. More and more couples are requesting specialty fillings to spice up their cakes. Salted Caramel Buttercream anyone?
Cakes in the buff!!! One of the newest wedding trends are naked cakes which means the frosting has been stripped off the sides of cake with just a thin coating of frosting with or without other fillings visible between the layers of delicious cake.
These rustic beauties are a great option for couples that don’t like buttercream or for events held outside during the summer months where more traditional cakes could end up a melted sugary mess.
There are no “rules” so to speak on how you can decorate your naked cake. You can opt for decorating with fresh herbs or flowers or create an exquisite centerpiece with garnishes of ripe strawberries. No matter which option you choose your cake will have a stunning rustic, organic appearance.
