Wedding white will never go out of style, especially when it comes to your cake. While we love a colorful confection, there's something so stunning about the simplicity of an all-white wedding cake. An entirely white cake can be a nod to tradition, but it can also be created to reflect your more modern, trending 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.

Ahead, discover 30 of our favorite ideas for all-white wedding cakes.
