Wedding Cake | Denver Wedding Planners
Chelle and I were swooning over some wedding cake photos recently and it really hit me: I miss wedding cakes! There is nothing like walking into a reception and seeing a gorgeous wedding cake, in all of its artistic glory, sitting there waiting for the couple to perform the tradition of cutting into it. Now, don’t get me wrong. I love cupcakes. I could probably eat one every day- seriously. However, a special occasion such as a wedding deserves a special dessert. Talented cake artists can design a one-of-a-cake statement piece for your wedding that reflects your wedding style and what better way to add to the decor of your reception than a beautiful piece of edible art?
The wedding industry has seen a lot of cupcakes the past few years, as well as dessert tables and candy buffets. While they were a novelty for some time and still are fun to see at weddings, I really think there’s going to be a big return to the wedding cake. As a person with a big sweet tooth, I say you can never have too many desserts at a special occasion! If you are torn between including a wedding cake and cupcakes, mini cupcakes make a great wedding favor and your wedding cake can still be your statement piece.
As wedding cakes make a comeback, couples are going to choose more unique ways to incorporate their personalities and style into their cake. Cake artists are making sugar flowers look more real than ever and cakes can be designed to look like the bride’s dress, the wedding invitation or a linen pattern and fondant can be shaped into just about anything, including birds, ruffles and ribbon. One trend I love right now is seeing different shapes and sizing between tiers and bold cake colors.
I bet you just did some oohing and aahing yourself just now seeing the photos of the cakes above…. Why not treat your guests to the same delight?
(A very big thank you goes out to the talented Rachael from Intricate Icings for providing all the photos in this blog post of her special cake designs!)
Life is sweet!
