Wedding Cakes with Decidedly Different Designs

So maybe the traditional, 3-tiered, white icing fruitcake isn’t exactly what you have in mind when you dream of your perfect wedding cake. With so many fun and funky designs out there, and an attitude of “anything goes” when it comes to weddings, now is the perfect time to be looking for that decidedly different wedding cake.

As important as a wedding cake is to your wedding’s overall design, after all it does hold a prominent place in the room, it’s more important to design your wedding and let your cake fall into your plans than to do it the other way around.

Decide on the overall theme and tone of your wedding and let the wedding cake design work its way in. Don’t worry that you won’t be able to find a design to suit you, with so many cake decorating artists on the market, it will be easy to find someone that goes outside the traditional wedding cake box, even if you have to go online and have it shipped.

When choosing a cake outside of the norm, it is important to have a clear picture of exactly what you want. Just saying you want something avante garde or different and leaving the choice up to a designer that met you only yesterday, can be a recipe for disaster. If you have found a picture you like and a cake designer/baker whose work you admire, then it is a good idea to make sure that the talent is up to the task, if the picture is not one of their own designs.

Once you’ve found a picture you like, don’t be afraid to add your own signature to the cake. Whether you add an extra design element, a wild and out there color to coordinate with your theme, or a fun and playful cake topper, a wedding cake is one accessory where the fun of designing should not be ignored.

For a design idea, a mad hatter tea party styled cake is the latest in cake design. Consisting of three separate bases, one for the bride, one for the groom and one for them together as a couple, they are the perfect way to show how two lives can combine into one.

Not sure if you want a cake that is different in appearance? Keep the cake itself simple and jazz it up with a unique cake stand. Available at many wedding accessory stores or commissioned through an artistic metal worker, a unique and funky cake stand and tier separator has the added bonus of being something you can use after the wedding for cakes, candles or other decorative features. Incorporate your unique stand into your overall wedding by having smaller versions made to give guests as wedding favors that double as candleholders.

A wedding accessory that will be sure to impress your guests, a decidedly different wedding cake is a terrific way to stand out from the crowd.
