Surprise your guests with an original wedding cake

Every single moment of your wedding day is special. Today I am going to talk about one of these moments, the instance you cut the traditional wedding cake. It is a magical instance, where everyones´eyes are on you, that´s why the wedding cake needs to be not only delicious but also  lovely and original to look at. We are very lucky nowadays,as wedding cake designers create marvelous cakes. There is a cake to suit each couple. You can share with your wedding cake designer your ideas, the colours and theme of your wedding and s/he will come up with an unique creation for you, on your wedding day.

In today´s post I would like to show you the work of two of these great designers : Vanilla Bake Shop and Layers Wedding Cakes.

Their wedding cakes are original and very creative, with all sorts of different motifs, shapes, colour combinations and decorative details such as lace, bows,natural flowers.  Your wedding cake will blend in perfectly with the rest of your wedding decorations.

You can go for traditional cake toppers in different materials, wood,fabric, porcelain…or choose something different and unusual such as your initials at the top of the cake, or some lovely details like the ones in these photos. A cute pair of birds, a lovely and original china cup…. anything you have in mind.

Nature is always a source of inspiration. Natural flowers and ornaments look great !! I like these two cakes here because of their subtle combination of colours and there simple and elegant designs.
