Most people automatically assume a wedding cake should be a fruit cake, with each tier being separated by pillars. However these days this is not the case. There are many ways of adapting traditional wedding cakes to have a more modern look or you could simply go for completely unique and unusual wedding cakes altogether.
More often than not a bride can now find exactly what she and her partner wants regardless of any unusual ideas they may have. In the past a bride would try to please the older generations and steer clear of unusual wedding cakes and just stick to fruit cakes in keeping with historical traditions.
Because brides are becoming more adventurous and are looking for new and unusual wedding cakes this market has now grown considerably. In fact you will be amazed at all the diverse and unique wedding cakes that are now available.
Choosing unusual wedding cakes will not only make your wedding stand out it will always be remembered.
When looking for unusual wedding cakes that will have to be handmade by a cake designer always double check time scales. The more intricate and detailed the longer the cake maker will require to achieve the best results and deliver the cake before the big day.
Try not to get too carried away. This is your wedding so you do not want a cake that spoils the ambiance of the day. Try to incorporate your own ideas into your cake design so that the cake shows the personality of both yourself and your partner.
Some wedding cake ideas you may want to consider are:
- A wedding cake that is a castle with the bride and groom inside
- A picture of the bride and groom on the cake
- A wedding cake in the theme of your honeymoon such as Disneyland or a beach theme.
When choosing extravagant or unusual wedding cakes you will need to take into account how many guests will be attending your wedding. If your guest list is relatively small then you can afford to forgo the extra expense and consider designer wedding cakes that may cost a small fortune. However if your guest list is large you may need to cut back on the detail and elegance of the cake so the cost does not become ridiculous.
Remember the cake will be shared between all the guests so do not make the shape to tricky to cut at the end of the evening or difficult to share out amongst all your guests.
Considering unusual wedding cakes is a great way of making your wedding stand out from everyone else’s and an ideal way of expressing you and your partners’ adventurous and fun sides.
