How important is you wedding cake to you on the day?
how many of you brides are getting caught up in tradition whilst planning for the most speical day in their lives?
Are you fed up with conforming to expectations of what is considered the "norm" for what you hope will be a truely individual day?
Well we just wanted to take this moment to show you some truely unique cake ideas that show you just how individual you can dare to be and just how different a wedding cake can be for you alone.
Rather than going for themed cakes which are going to be unique anyway we wanted to showcase some trends and techniques that you coud choose to be encorporated into your cake to make it a bit more modern.
One baker you simply have to follow on Instagram for bright and funky ideas is Katherine Sabbath. She has been developing fantastic cakes in recent years that are bold and playful that one would normally assume were amazing childrens birthday cakes but what we want to say is why can't we use this as a wedding cake. We particularly love how precise the lines of the colourful cake layers are and the techniques used to create the striped chocolate shards on top of the cake.
Our next cake is by Bristol based cake desgner Emma Buston of Bake My Cake. We just adored this melting chocolate popcorn cake when she posted it in the summer and this kind of cake with the dripping chocolate icing looks so decadent that it is screaming "EAT ME!" and having it topped off with a glittery calligraphy saying looks stunning.
Another Cake company that we always keep our eye out for is the Cake Opera Co. They produce some of the grandest most ambitious and austentastious cake you will ever lay your eyes on. They are masters in sugar craft and are usually all about using influences of granduer from opulent moments throughout time. however the cake we chose here showcases so finer details that are incredibly delicate and we love the use of butterflies as a symbol of enduring love.
For the final two cakes we are focusing on bringing more natural elements onto your cake to add a sense of added texture.
In the chocolate cake above we can see that simple fondant layers of flat iced brown layers complement the textures of the lilac toned ruffle icing of the base layer whilst blending perfectly with the intricut pastel pink rose blooms and trailing foilage detail.
The second cake actually incorporates real flowers and moss that are then accompanied by some excellent icing that has been hand painted to resembled that of real tree bark. The whole piece comes together effortlessly and so naturally..
So why not think outside the box when it comes to your showstoping cake and be that little bit more creative - It will have your guests in Awe!
