Without a doubt, one of the best parts of any wedding is the cake. Not only does it taste wonderful, but a fabulous wedding cake on display is the cherry on top of a beautiful wedding reception. I don’t know about you, but I always make a beeline to go admire the cake whenever I attend a wedding. Since your cake is so important, it must be worthy of the spotlight. These lovely pink wedding cakes are some of the prettiest I have seen lately.
Can a pink wedding cake be as sophisticated as it is pretty? It can if it is as graceful as the cake seen above. The hexagonal base tier sets off the round tiers of the cake, and lends an opulence that wouldn’t be present if all of the tiers were round. The details are equally spectacular: the inscribed quilted design that reminds one of a Chanel bag, complete with little pearl accents (so fabulous with pearl jewelry for the bride), the pearls piped around the base of each tier, and the grand gold medallions.
Speaking of elegant, how about a square wedding cake covered in an opulent pink damask pattern? It is a wonderful combination of femininity and formality. This would be a wonderful cake for a formal daytime wedding or a summer evening reception. The square tiers and geometric design balance out the girlyness of the pinker-than-pink frosting to strike the perfect balance.
On the other hand, sometimes a feminine, romantic cake is exactly what the bride wants. In that case, it would be hard to find one more beautiful than the peony topped confection above. The cake was handpainted with a fine sable brush to mimic the intricate patterns of Lustreware dishes. the effect is just so lovely. Imagine this masterpiece at an afternoon garden party wedding when the peonies are in season – just wonderful.
For a more subtle pink wedding cake with plenty of style, this pinkish ivory cake is positively dreamy. The white lace and pearl accents are very beautiful, and the big pink sugar bow is simply delightful. It would be fantastic to have a cake like this created using the lace from your own wedding gown. Top it off with big sugar flowers, and you will have the perfect traditional pink wedding cake.
For brides who love flowers, why not cover your cake with the sugar version? This lovely cake festooned with handmade sugar roses is simple in its classic pink color palette, yet very eye catching as well. The rows of ribbons and delicate piping around the tiers add a nice depth and detail to each layer. This would be a fantastic cake for any bride who is carrying a rose bouquet.
I confess that lately I have been obsessed with fanciful ruffle cakes. When you combine rows of frosting ruffles with pink pinwheel flowers, you really have something special. This is a fun, flirty cake design that would be great for a modern wedding, a vintage style wedding, or even a classic wedding. The ruffles look timeless and feminine, but the cake style is also very current, so it hits the best of traditional and contemporary style. Absolutely darling!
