Whimsical wedding cakes

There are no rules that say all weddings must be elegant or showers must be chic. An event can be anything that reflects the personality and tastes of those who are involved. If fanciful fits, take it to the limit. A whimsical cake, like the one to the left, allows for plenty of creativity.

Each layer is different, but the colors all work together to make a cohesive statement. Let design, textures, colors, shape and embellishments all work together to create a masterpiece that is totally unique.

If the wedding is outdoors, in a backyard or at the beach, couple’s may forgo having a cake and choose the simplicity and ease of serving and transporting cupcakes. Whether it be elegant, whacky or whimsical; a cake or cupcakes, whatever you choose, it will be the crowning touch to your special day and you and your guests will be delighted with your special dessert.

The French tend to do things with style, panache, and flair. They are elegant while still being understated. Take the wedding cake, how simple is that? But yet…how beautiful! – Photo: Kevin Covey Weddings and Events, Christine Bentley Photography

Cupcakes are usually reflective of a simple or more playful atmosphere, and they are a good option for outdoor weddings, especially in hot weather.  Since they are generally displayed on a tiered rack or plates, they won’t tilt or slide. What ever you choose it will be your day. Have fun!
