The ways of displaying your wedding cake are getting just as creative as the cakes themselves. Brides all over the country and adapting there cake display as much as they are their table centres. I think the traditional wedding “rules” are really being broken….
Here is a run down of some of the ways I think are going to continue to develop throughout 2014. Let’s start with my personal favourite:
Over a barrel
I love the rustic style of having the wedding cake displayed on barrels. It’s cute and simple yet lets the cake take centre stage whilst keeping in with that farmhouse style wedding that is becoming increasingly popular this season. Take a look at this example I found on http://rusticweddingchic.com/marriott-ranch-country-wedding through pinterest.
Also a bit of burlap never hurt anyone….
On a tree stump
Keeping with the rustic theme….
Another simple yet effective presentation technique proving really popular at the moment is the wedding cake presented on a tree stump or “slice” of tree. Think summer, marquee, bunting…..what could go wrong?!
OK so having your wedding cake surrounded by flowers isn’t anything new, but there are so many ways to go about it. your can wrap the base in straw and bright flowers, go for a beautiful light ring of baby’s breath or make a real statement way flower swags around the top of the cake table.
On the box
Having the cake displayed on a box leaves so much interpretation and imagination, from wooden boxes, wrapped, colour coordinated or covered in lace, you can really make your mark. Here is a stunning colour coordinated example… (and let’s face it, a few stops and stripes always make for a simple yet effective cake design)
Have a table full
Of cake that is, or display your cake as part of your sweetie table. I love the idea of a colour theme sweetie table with the cake pride of place in the centre, just look at this example by sugar ruffles. I am so excited about doing a couple of cakes with sweet tables like this during this summer!
