Wedding Cake Inspiration from A Cake Life
Several years ago when my husband was in culinary school, I entertained the idea of becoming a professional baker/cake artist and learning how to make beautiful custom cakes… then I realized that I didn’t have the patience to work on perfecting my decorating skills and I’d much rather bake as a hobby than for a living. Alas, I hardly have the time to bake nowadays, but a stylish wedding cake never ceases to grab my attention.
Whenever I’m craving virtual sweetness, I know I can turn to A Cake Life. Owner Kristin Kato and her team pride themselves on customizing each cake to give you a delicious work of art. If you need help in dreaming up your perfect wedding cake, here are some gorgeous styles that can be tailored to any wedding.
Ruffles aren’t just for dresses anymore. Ruffles on your wedding cake can be whimsical or elegant depending on the material (buttercream or fondant), style (loose and unstructured or frilly), and color. No matter which way you choose, ruffled wedding cakes are utterly romantic.
The ombre trend shows no signs of slowing down and is a great way to tie in all of your wedding colors.
I’ve got to admit I’m not the biggest fan of frosting, but something about these happy swirls of buttercream makes me want to lick the screen.
If you prefer a “less is more” approach, this rustic stucco texture is classic without being plain.
Flowers and wedding cakes go together like milk and cookies.
- Fresh Flowers
Sometimes it’s better to let nature take center stage and have a simple cake decorated with a few (or a lot) of beautiful fresh flowers.
- Sugar Flowers
Then again, sometimes your favorite flower doesn’t come in exactly the right color, wilts easily, or is poisonous and can’t be used on cake. Or maybe you just appreciate the extra wow factor and intricacy of handmade sugar accents.
