Your guests might forget which petals made up your bridal bouquet or which song played during your first dance, but friends and family will always remember what your wedding cake tasted like — and looked like! One way to impress them during dessert? A wedding cake adorned with beautiful flowers.
Wedding cakes with flowers are one of the most popular big-day desserts since cheerful blooms add tons of excitement to a simple cake without a huge expense. Both options are surprisingly budget-friendly upgrades — especially compared to other popular cake décor like fondant or hand-cut details.
The options are nearly endless when it comes to creating your dream floral wedding cake. Opt for a hand-painted option covered in whimsical pastel flowers for a vintage-themed affair. Hosting something more rustic? We found a simple naked cake with tons of pink-and-red blooms. And we know formal brides will obsess over the classic white confection with cascading sugar flowers.
Another way to try the timeless trend? Keep the blossoms contained to the very top tier. Many couples ares skipping the basic bride and groom cake topper in favor of a display of fresh flowers. Try a scattering of several types or one oversized bloom (think peonies, hydrangeas, or garden roses) for a classic cake with a romantic twist.
