Must Read:


Your wedding theme should match the look of your cake. We recommend that you plan the design of your cake once your wedding theme is set. This will ensure that your cake is in harmony with the overall theme you are trying to keep. It will also allow you to spend more time thinking about flavor.

These elements can be used as a guideline for the design and structure to your wedding cake. You should choose a cake that is compatible with your venue’s style, season, flower arrangements, and the menu.

To match our theme, consider adding unique decorations to your cake. Do you want an industrial feel? Copper piping is a great choice, as shown in the featured photo. Are you looking for a tropical theme? You can add tropical flowers, banana palms or pineapple slices. Ask your baker for the most creative or original thing they have done. They’ll love a fun twist on it!

Never Miss:

Naked cakes are very popular, especially for rustic weddings. Naked cakes are less sweet than standard cakes, making them a great choice for couples with a limited sweet tooth.


Is it buttercream or fondant? This is the key question. Buttercream is more flavorful, but fondant looks great.

Cream cheese is a strong contender. Cream cheese frosting, which is more savory than cream cheese, pairs well with many cake flavors including red velvet and spiced cakes like carrot cake. Cream cheese can be flavored with citrus flavors like lemon or orange to enhance the flavor of your cake.

Ganache is also available. This rich frosting made of cream and chocolate can be transformed into a fluffy, decadent dessert. It can be made dark brown, but you can ask the baker to add colorful fruit. Ask for white chocolate versions, which can be dyed in almost any shade.

Whipping cream with a touch of sweetness: Whipped cream is another popular choice for couples looking for light frosting that has just a hint sweetness. Whipped cream frosting is great for weddings that are indoors, in cool climates, and for weddings that are air-conditioned.

Swiss meringue is a less-known alternative. It’s made by whisking egg whites with sugar. This icing is less popular for wedding cakes, but it can be used as an additional perk. It has a soft and fluffy appearance that makes it romantic and whimsical. It’s also a great choice for fruit-based cakes, such as strawberry, raspberry, and lemon.


Avoid buttercream, meringue and whipped cream if you are having an outdoor wedding in hot weather. They melt. Fondant-covered cakes are a better option for summer because they resist heat well.
