What do you think of when you hear the words "winter wedding?" For us, snowflakes, glitter, icicles, glowing white tones, rich reds, and metallic accents all instantly come to mind—your basic winter wonderland. A wedding in December, January, or February calls for a wedding cake that captures that icy atmosphere and injects a little warmth and romance. We hit up the hottest wedding cake bakers and browsed through real winter weddings to find the most stunning confections that fit the season. We came across dazzling seasonal cakes that embodied the truly cozy kind of love we most associate with winter. We're talking cakes topped with delicate sugar flowers, adorned with endless swirls of buttercream roses, covered in the palest pastel fondant, colored with Christmas-like red and green icing, and accented by rustic twigs and branches that evoke winter woods. Winter is uniquely suited to these kinds of cakes, so why not go all out?
This show-stopping creation by Maggie Austin Cake is the height of frosty glam. Doesn't it make you think of a fairy tale ice princess marrying her prince charming? The ice-blue fondant and ruffles call to mind early morning winter skies, while the sparkly freshwater pearl detailing on the top three tiers look like icicles. Along with the white flower topper, it would make a perfect centerpiece for a swanky city wedding in the heart of wintertime. Far from the rustic browns and reds often associated with wintertime nuptials, this cake is the epitome of pristine.
