Trust us: These classic confections are anything but boring.
An entirely white cake can be a nod to tradition (your parents and grandparents likely treated their wedding guests to one of these colorless confections), but it can also be created to reflect your more modern tastes by incorporating cool geometric details or unique patterns. Choosing an all-white wedding cake doesn't limit your design options, either. If you love the look of sugar flowers, delicate lace piping, or fondant details, choosing an all-white (or cream!) palette for your dessert will result in a truly refined and tasteful look. Some other ways we love to make an all-white cake pop? Swiss dot details, ruffles, or rough frosting look great when created in entirely white.
Plus, an all-white cake works for every type of wedding reception. Amp up the formality of your cake with intricate piping details, like those seen on the dessert, which is reminiscent of Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal wedding dessert, from Dianna Tornow Cakes. Hosting a more casual celebration? Confectionery Designs' cake, accented with fresh white flowers, is simple yet beautiful. And for a seaside bash, you don't need to add cool blues for a nautical touch — La Patisserie Chouquette proves that braiding and ropes look entirely fit for oceanfront nuptials.
