Style and Art Meets Cake Decoration Ideas


Tears have been shed, speeches made, vows taken, and now all that is left is the cherry on top: the cake. A crowd-pleasing tradition, the first slice of a wedding cake can be a moment filled with breath-taking romance or a hilarious crowd-pleaser.

Either way, a wedding cake is an integral part of your reception, and finding the right cake can be a heavy lift on your part. You've made hundreds of decisions already, from the silverware to the venue to the guest list, and making another decision can feel overwhelming.

Once you've made the other decisions, finding the right cake for your wedding should feel like placing the final piece of a puzzle! A perfect fit.

Luckily, there have never been more options than there are now when it comes to choosing a wedding cake. You can have multi-layered, filled, ice cream cakes, cupcakes, and everything in between.

While there has been incredible innovation on the flavors and structures of cake, you can bet the outsides have gotten their makeover too. Gone are the days when cakes offered just one single layer of frosting. Now, your cake can be a masterpiece/centerpiece, a piece of art worthy of a museum!

That’s not to say that you can’t go with something more simple or classic, but if you want to have a more creative wedding reception, here are some options so you can be sure that you’ve picked the right cake for your wedding.

Get Funky with the Shag Carpet Piping Technique: 

We love this funky and colorful trend inspired by the infamous shag carpet of the 70s. Alana Jones-Mann is credited with starting this colorful trend. She’s reclaimed shag carpet and has somehow made it trendy-- worthy of a wedding cake! Known for her textured piping work that creates this amazing effect, it feels like your cake is constantly in motion. While it is incredibly innovative it is also very versatile! Just by choosing different colors, patterns, and shapes, you can create a cake that really sets you apart! 

And these are only some of the options out there!

Another Awesome Funky Idea - Intricate Beading Cake Decoration: 

This piping technique makes it appear as if thousands of beautiful beads adorn your wedding cake. Cakes decorated this way are a sight to behold, almost too beautiful to eat (don’t worry, we said ALMOST). Siân-Amy Pettit, @thepetitepudding, created this unique trend after trying out the shag technique we mentioned earlier. She wanted something a little more delicate and intricate beyond what the shag technique could offer. Your eyes move a mile a minute trying to take in all the beautiful intricacies of this technique— and it works for any occasion! 

You can do something more abstract, like this beautiful ocean-colored masterpiece, or something a bit more literal, like this funky piece featuring hot pink flamingos and watermelons!
