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.

All White Wedding Cakes

An all white wedding cake is classic. There is something so elegant about its monochromatic simplicity. Just because the color is simple, however, doesn’t mean that the cake will be boring. The visual appeal is all in the details. Geometric patterns create a more modern look. Flowers, depending upon their style, can transform plain icing or fondant into something dramatic or simple. A ruffled effect can work with a relaxed or vintage theme. Piping and polka dots transcend another time. You can kick it up a notch with ribbons and sashes. Below are some inspiring ideas.
