Traditionally, the wedding cake is a very significant part of a wedding. Although its meanings have changed over the centuries, the cake represents the centerpiece of the reception. That is why most young couples try to come up with unique and special methods of emphasizing the wedding cake and making it more appealing.
Whether is a small and less elaborate cake or a highly sophisticated one with exquisite shapes and many tiers, it still needs some fine ornaments that will make it stand out more and look beautiful and refined. Depending on the theme and type of wedding, young couples can opt for an elegant cake or a funny and interesting one.
Decorating the cake is a very important step. Hence, it is highly recommended to pay attention when choosing the decorations. They must match the wedding scheme color and the theme and be delicate and subtle in order to avoid overburdening the cake. Fresh, fragrant blossoms are the most popular choices for decorating the cake. The most common flowers for such occasions are pansies, roses, daisies, orchids and petunias. These flowers are extremely beautiful and also quite resistant. They will be kept in the refrigerator until the decoration will begin. A nice and elegant way of embellishing the cake using natural flowers is placing the blossoms on the cake tiers. However, using flowers to decorate your cake can be a little risky, because some of them can be toxic. Before deciding to use flowers ask the florist and the baker which flowers are safe. If you like the idea of a wedding cake decorated with flowers but do not want to use natural ones, consider floral ornaments made of sugar or icing. You can either place them around the cake tiers or create a beautiful and decorative wedding cake topper.
In case of a winter wedding you can opt for a cake decorated with delicate and special Christmas ornaments such as Christmas trees, Santa, snowmen and rein deers. For a more festive and eye-catching look opt for silver and gold bells placed on or around the cake. If you want to use plastic decorations make sure they are placed at the reception because they can easily fall and damage your wedding cake.
Depending on the complexity of the cake and your wedding budget, you can decorate the cake yourself or ask a professional to help you. Regardless what you decide, make sure the cake is decorated with care and attention. Choose elegant and beautiful ornament that match the wedding theme and will look great on the cake.
