Make a talkng point out of your wedding cake by injecting some magic in to the ingredients with these tips by wedding dress boutique Belle Bridal
Your wedding cake offers the perfect blank canvas to create a masterpiece that gets the attention of all your guests. Whether you want customisation or breathtaking beauty, there are plenty of options to make your cake unique. Belle Bridal offer their ideas to make your cake truly remarkable.
A personal touch
There are so many different ways that you could spice up your wedding cake, and one of the best ways of doing this is to add a personal touch to the design. Whilst a cake with white fondant icing is undoubtedly classically beautiful, you could take the design one step further and add the outline of a map, showcasing where the two of you have travelled, or highlighting the place where you first kissed, where the proposal occurred, or where you first went on holiday together as a couple. This personal touch will make your wedding feel totally unique, and it will serve as the perfect reminder of all your fabulous memories as a couple.

Light the way
If you’re looking to add a more modern touch to your cake, you could combine the delicious flavour of a vanilla sponge with the addition of projection mapping. Whether your dream is to project Tinkerbell scattering fairy dust over your cake or to have your cake flowing from one pattern to the next, you can achieve this all through project mapping. Professionals deliver these magical creations using a video projector that is specially set up to map light onto an uneven surface (such as your cake).

Dress it up
Your wedding cake doesn’t have to follow a specific pattern, design or shape. It could be made to reflect any aspect of your wedding, including your wedding dress. If you have chosen a dress that makes you weak at the knees every time you see it, you could use your wedding cake as another opportunity to show it off. This will undoubtedly add a 'wow' factor to your wedding cake and have your guests fawning over your stunning gown.
Is the groom known for his love of music? Or is the bride renowned for her outrageous shopping habits? Let your wedding figures reflect your personalities, and showcase these figures on top of your cake for all to see. Adding a bespoke bride and groom to the top of your cake can be a great way of personalising your cake, making an intriguing alternative to the generic 'faceless' characters normally used.
Elevate your cakes
If you already have your heart set on the type of cake that you’re after, you could always make it more special by considering the stand that the cake is presented on. If you’re looking at hosting a rustic wedding or you’re styling a wedding set within a forest, sitting your wedding cake on an engraved tree trunk would be a beautiful way to enhance the theme and personalise your cake. Alternatively, if you really want to wow your guests and get them talking, you could suspend your cake from hooks or even the ceiling.
