This winter has been no joke: The polar vortex has brought epic amounts of snow, chilly temperatures, and high winds to all corners of the U.S.! Luckily, it's given us plenty of time to cozy up and plan dream winter weddings. Wintertime affairs are naturally infused with romance—think fur shrugs, hot signature cocktails, and rustic woodsy ceremonies in the mountains. Add a wintry wedding cake, and these cold days suddenly don't seem so bad!
Winter wedding cakes are fabulous because they celebrate the most classic cake color, white, and add creative elements like snowflakes and crystals. The Erica O'Brien Cake Design confection seen above uses houndstooth fondant and non-pareil pom-poms to evoke elegant winter fashions. It's perfect for a high-end soiree in a mountain town like Vail. Other cakes have luxe metallics and rustic branches—so pretty!
