This kind of cake is all in the details. For the contemporary bride who likes the streamlined look, a wedding cake with a single layer of fondant is one way to set the tone for her entire wedding.
A white wedding cake also lends itself to lots of subtle details that can make the whole thing something truly special.
Think about the kinds of patterns you’re going to use for your own wedding dress. For example, you can opt for a dotted swiss pattern across the top. That will bring in interesting contrast when the guests get a close up look at the cake.
Piping can be used on the side of the wedding cake to bring in texture. A few swirls along the sides and top with lots of rough brush strokes allow the cake to stand out.
Ruffles on the side bring in your girly side and make the cake one that people can admire from all sides. Ask your baker to draw up your favorite place in piping against the side of the cake.
Flowers work well with this kind of cake. You can be daring or aim for something a bit more understated.
A few large flowers in white against a white cake are a good choice for the summer bride. Think about flowers such as roses that have large petals.
For the bride who likes the idea of variety, tiny flowers complete the cake and make it personal.
Keep the interior simple with vanilla cake or go for a welcome contrast such as chocolate or carrot cake.
Don’t think that a white wedding cake is outdated, for it is a classic look that can be modern and contemporary too.
