Top 5 Wedding Cake Ideas For Your Wedding
It’s that time already! You’ve picked out your trousseau, chosen your wedding party, and booked the venue – all that remains is to pick out the menu. From butter chicken to payasum – there’s a lot to taste (enjoy it while you can), but don’t forget the most important part – the wedding cake!
Wedding Cake Ideas
Why is the cake so important? Well, traditionally the wedding cake is a symbol of prosperity and fertility. Each guest needs to have a slice and the custom of having a multi-layered cake actually came into being out of necessity rather than aesthetics. After all, they had to feed all the guests!
Today, the cake is a small but personal affair. It’s your chance to add a personal touch to the wedding and showcase your personalities.
So, keeping that in mind, our wedding cake ideas for desi wedding are:
#1. Patterns And Prints:
If traditional white and cream cakes bore you, perhaps it’s time to add a splash of colour and some patterns into the mix. From leopard print (for the daring) to intricate henna-inspired designs (for the imaginative), there are a lot of options to choose from. You can even have metallic accents to add a little sparkle to the proceedings.
#2. On Top Of The World: Bobbleheads Cake Topper
Cake toppers on a wedding cake are a time honoured tradition that you can have a little fun with. Usually, the bride and groom are sculpted standing side-by-side or looking into each other’s eyes. However, you can play around with the concept a little and make it more personal. You and your spouse could even be dancing, playing a game, and much more. You can even dress them in sarees and sherwanis for the full desi-effect.
#3. Couple’s Photograph on top of the Cake:
A recent trend that’s growing in popularity is to print the couple’s photograph on top of the wedding cake. This is the perfect way to show off that pre-wedding shoot you had, and make sure no one forgets how stunning you look. Best of all, this semi-digital marvel doesn’t take away from the taste of the cake (yum!).
#4. The Cupcake Craze:
If you don’t have your heart set on a typical tiered wedding cake, it is worth succumbing to the cupcake craze. You can even personalize each cupcake to reflect a variety of interests. They’re so easy to eat (and save for later). You also have a wide range of flavours to choose from and don’t have to settle for just one.
#5. Go With A Theme:
If you’ve been waiting your whole life for a superhero themed cake – now is your shot! While we’re not advocating something garish or silly, there are plenty of interesting and subtle ways you can incorporate your favourite things into your wedding day. A nice, well-designed wedding cake will capture the essence of your interests without being inappropriate. Just don’t “Hulk smash!”
