Romantic Wedding Cakes

What makes a wedding cake romantic? There is something about flowers on a wedding cake that speaks romance. Blooms have long been associated with love and romance. The Greeks used a flower to represent Venus, the goddess of love. White roses symbolize unity and true love. So what better to decorate a wedding cake with than flowers – be them white or colorful. Ruffles and romance are also a perfect pairing. They can be both artful and sophisticated.  Ribbons and lace have  also long been associated with love and romance. With so many options to choose from, here are a few wonderful romantic inspirations to help you along.
