When it comes to your wedding cake, there are so many options to choose from.  Where to begin? First, decide, do you want a wedding cake or a dessert bar or pies, or cupcakes, etc.. There are truly dozens of options to consider, but today, lets focus on the classic wedding cake.

One of our favorites { Naked cakes }  with the cake itself exposed, the frosting smooths out the imperfections just enough to make this a stunning concept.  Finished with just a touch of flowers that coordinates with the brides bouquet, and whola “Love”!  Here we’ve used hypericum berries, roses and spray roses to top it off!

{ Tiny Tiers } Not in love with cake, but still want to have the ceremonial cutting.  This checks all the boxes.  Two-Three tiers stacked to create petite wedding cake.  Create a flower topper with hydrangeas and blooms placed here or there on the sides. Or forgo the top of the cake, leave it plan, and highlight the tiers with shades of peonies, ranucnulus and spray roses.   Have a large guest count? Instead of just one cake, how about three?! Yes Please! Love the way you can incorporate, the cake into a design element and make it part of the event all night long!

This aint’ your grandmothers cake! { Detailed Cakes }  These days, cake are an edible work of art. Look at the Swiss doss details, absolutely perfect, all the way around.  Replicate the lace detailed from the brides dress, or the families silk handkerchief. They are so stunning by themselves, flowers would almost distract from their loveliness.

We found the perfect cake, the perfect amount of flowers to be on the cake. What about the placement of it? { Cake Tables } Since the cakes are masterpieces, lets jazz up the table its displayed on, as well! Our good friends and A.Caldwell Events, styled  this beauty. Gold sequin linens, surrounded by a wreath of southern hydranges, magnolia leaves, cameilla leaves, seeded eucalptus, garden roses.  Making the wreath as large as the table, lush and thick, absoutley necessary to fill in the empty space that was left between the cake stand and the linen. Perfection!
