From metallic to geometric to semi-naked (yep, we said semi-naked…), we love these unique and alternative wedding cake ideas!
The cutting of the cake is still very much a ubiquitous and much-cherished moment in many a wedding album. But if you’re searching for a way to razzle-dazzle this very sweetest of moments, then look no further – we shine a spotlight on the very latest and greatest alternative wedding cake ideas…
Colour-pop geomotric lines and patterns will make an instant statement in your wedding album and a beautiful backdrop for guests to marvel at throughout the meal. Perfect if you’re opting for a brightly coloured theme or choosing all-things modern, discuss contrasting colour clashes with your cake designer for a visual spectacular or opt for two or three key accent colours to mirror your big-day colours elsewhere.
After all, why limit yourself to one cake? Couples are increasingly choosing all of their favourite sweet treats and incorporating this tantalising table into proceedings as a feature display in its own right! Delicious and visually scrumptious!
For slick and polished, effortlessly chic weddings, consider co-ordinating with a sophisticated theme and choose a metallic finish for your cake too! Guaranteed to make a statement and also perfect for couples who don’t want to stray too far from the traditional; opt for entire tiers painted in gold or silver, or choose smaller piped details.
What better way to make your cake truly bespoke than to personalise it to you and your new husband? Wonderfully versatile and easily customisable, your cake affords you the perfect opportunity to get creative! Choose subtle monogramed detailing or go the whole hog and opt for a full-blown, cake-sized self-portrait of the pair of you painted onto your cake (we’ve seen it done…!).
The semi-naked cake
Enormously popular in recent years – and looking almost too good to eat – consider the gloriously decadent semi-naked cake. Perfect if you’re opting for a more rustic theme (although they can be dressed up to the nines too!), these cakes are roughly iced with buttercream for a ‘not quite finished’ effect that is bound to dazzle and delight!
