Five-Tiered Cake with Cascading Flowers

One of the highlights of every wedding? The cake! Guests might forget your first dance song or the color of your table runners, but your friends and family will always remember what your wedding cake tasted like — and looked like. Wedding cakes with flowers are one of the most popular big day desserts, and for good reason! Pretty blooms add vibrancy to an otherwise simple cake at a relatively low expense. It allows the bride and groom to skip pricier decorative techniques — like fondant or hand-cut details — in favor of floral adornments. And though sugar flowers cost more than fresh, the fake buds are still a cost-effective way to upgrade your wedding cake without bursting your budget. The best part about going the faux-flower route is that the color and design options are endless. If you prefer to use real flowers (which look absolutely gorgeous on a big cake!), choose a bloom that's currently in season and complements your wedding theme. One of the most popular ways to include flowers on a big-day dessert? The topper! Many couples are forgoing traditional cake toppers in favor of fresh blooms. But if you can't image skipping the classic bride and groom, consider other options, like sugar petal details or scattered buds at the cake's base or between layers. We found 37 beautiful wedding cakes with flowers from bakers across the country. With countless options, including hand-painted, cascading, single-bloom, and overloaded-floral styles, it's impossible not to find a delicious confection you absolutely love.
