Let Them Eat Cake! – Wedding Cake Inspiration

Cleveland Wedding Cake by Luna Bakery and Cafe

Over the years, I have seen many different styles and flavors of wedding cakes. There have been round ones and square ones. Some are decorated with frosting and others use fondant. I have seen fresh flowers and flowers made of gum paste decorating the cakes. Wedding cakes can be classic and elegant or whimsical and elaborate. You can personalize your wedding cake with your wedding colors and style. Some add ribbons and custom cake toppers. I’ve even seen gold leaf flakes sprinkled on cakes and a Cinderella Carriage cake stand. No two wedding cakes or displays have ever been the same. Here are a few examples of some recent wedding cakes I have seen in the past few years.

Of course, not everyone wants a big cake. Some use cupcakes instead. Cupcakes are great if you know your guests may not want to eat dessert right away. They are easy to take home and are becoming a popular trend at weddings.

Groom’s Cake

Don’t forget the Groom’s cake which has become more of a thing in our area. Like wedding cakes, a groom’s cake can be customized for the groom.

Other Sweet Treats

Of course, there are other sweet treats you can add or use in place of cakes or cupcakes. Cookies and donuts are always a favorite.

Still want something different? Give pie a try!

Which is your favorite cake style?
