Add even more winter warmth and holiday cheer to your wedding with the perfect cake. Choosing the right wedding cake can be difficult, but fortunately the theme itself opens a treasure chest full of ideas. Let the winter season guide you in your quest for the cake that suits you and your theme.
Explore winter wedding cakes that taste like the holiday season. Steer away from white cake and towards rich flavors with spice. Taste test caramel spice, apple spice, and pumpkin spice cakes. If the spice flavors don’t hit the right spot then go for a dark chocolate with cranberry. Keep in mind that there aren’t any rules preventing you from choosing two different flavors, especially if your cake is multi tiered.
The aesthetics of your cake is just as important as the taste. Pick from a winter palette of icy blues, deep browns and reds, various whites, and don’t forget about orange. A classic choice would be an all white cake with red and green frosting décor. Go bold and choose a deep red frosting with green trim.
All About the Add-Ons
What will make your cake extra special are the accessories. Wedding cake ideas and accessories are all around you; you just need to open your eyes. Pull your holiday decorations out of your attic and sort through tree ornaments, table décor, etc and see if you can find anything that might work as your cake topper. Perhaps you have a favorite Santa Claus ornament that you love, or photos of you and/or your fiancé as children sitting on Santa’s lap that you could have minimized and decorated onto your wedding cake. Winter wedding cakes typically have snowflakes, angels, holly, cranberries, or pinecones as part of the design.
