Jul 13, 2018


Whether you are a big eater or not, you probably have thought twice if you are going to devour food or not—because let us be real; it is either too cute or too artsy for your stomach. 

However, beautiful wedding cakes are meant to be sliced and eaten. Do you know why? Wedding cakes hold a significant symbolism in weddings, but we usually do not know how it came into play. 


Before we have these beautiful wedding cakes, we only have confections made of wheat. It is to symbolize fertility and prosperity back in medieval times.


Can you believe that back in 1900, Romans break these ‘wedding cakes’ over the bride’s head? Well, it was basically just a loaf back then but still. It seems like a funny a story, but it is great to live in a timeline where these beautiful wedding cakes are treated fairly.


Sure, they will be eaten but at least not in a mortifying way. Wedding cakes were once all white, too, merely because it also reflects purity. The cutting ceremony is now the modern symbolic way as the first task that the bride and groom do together as newlyweds. Interesting, right? Do you know what is more interesting, though? These beautiful wedding cakes inspirations that might be too pretty to eat! 

Couples who love the idea of France can incorporate its color and design through beautiful wedding cakes that are towered with macaroons. It is also an excellent idea for weddings with a pastel color scheme. Though, you can also go a bit darker with the color of the macaroons. You do you! 

Dripping Blooms

Cakes with flowers dripping on the sides are probably too pretty to be eaten. Some decorators use real flowers on this design to make it look more authentic than just putting sugar flowers on it.


The trick to this idea is to put blooms that are exaggeratedly oversized that it covers most of the base of the cake—completely.

It gives off a cold yet comforting atmosphere out of the winter breeze. It should give the guests chills of enchantment. It is perfect for weddings with the blue, white, or lavender motif. 

Bold and Colorful

Beautiful wedding cakes in a tropical vibe are the best ideas for a bold and colorful statement. It is usually decorated with tropical fruits giving that vivid and vibrant color along with flowers that are too bright than they are pale.


It is perfect if you are having a beach or garden wedding. It should go well in the summer season as well.

Undressed or naked cakes are the best confections for rustic themed weddings. You can opt for three-tiered wedding cake accented with blueberries and figs.


Of course, these facets may change depending on your wedding design and style. 

Gold Sequins

If couples want to add more sparkle to their Big Day, a cake dressed in gold sequins might be a good option.


Aside from gold being very classic and timely, it can still be modernized with floral outlines around it.

Watercolor Touches

Cakes are like a plain canvas where cake makers can draw and paint—literally and figuratively.


There are these types of beautiful wedding cakes that are accentuated with metallic designs and soft watercolored hues to make it look stylish like stained glass. 

24-Karat Tiered Cake
