A wedding in the winter is just beautiful. You get to enjoy the snowy landscape, the pure, white color and just the joyful spirit of the holidays that are coming up. The wedding cake can carry the tradition and the season in the reception hall and can be a masterpiece. There are many winter wedding cakes to choose from when you are heading to a cake designer, but perhaps some of the ideas below will give you a better view of what you can choose and how to create that special moment when you cut down the cake.
Pinecones on a wedding cake are not a bad idea at all. The fondant on the cake can be done in an ice blue color and real pinecones can be sprinkled with royal icing and with sanding sugar, just to give the impression that snow has fallen down the cake. How about covering the wedding cake with snowflakes? They don’t have to be one ones falling from the sky, but the ones made out of sugar. Made from royal icing and miniature towards the top of the cake, the snowflakes give the impression of an elegant and graceful snowfall. The tiers can be frosted smoothly in order to resemble the packed snow.
As for the flavors, you can pick out a cake that has the rich flavors and you can stray away from the traditional cakes. Try something bold, such as caramel spice cake with caramel filling and butter cream frosting. Orange is very popular in winter, so give a bit of citrus fresh to your cake by choosing an orange chocolate cake filled with dark chocolate and decorate it with flecks of orange. If you want to keep the classic a bit, go with the white wedding cake, but inside fill it with cranberry and butter-cream as frosting. The colors are very important at a winter wedding cake and when you think about it, there are wide versions of white to choose from, icy blue, rustic green, rich red colors and mixtures with brown. You can use the Christmas colors and have an ivory cake covered with red sugarberries and use green holly leaves made out of sugar.
To create a special blend with the flowers you have on your bouquet, you can ask the baker to design the same flowers from sugar and place them on the cake. Large graphic sugar calla lilies look very nice on cake tiers.
