An All-White Wedding Cake: How to Decorate It
Wedding planner Ashley Lachney of Alston Mayger Events says, "Your white cake doesn't have to look vanilla, even if it is a vanilla cake." That's exactly the opposite of what people usually think of when planning to choose simple flavors for their wedding cake. Incorporating various aspects into the cake can transform it. Flowers, both fresh and sugar flowers, are a terrific way to give a burst of personality to a classic white wedding cake, in addition to texture. Danielle Lombardi and Hannah Ludden of Joyfully suggest "find that cakes take on a life of their own just by the flowers and texture personalized for each couple. The fresh florals that get added can create a unique look for each cake design!"
Experiment With Different Flavours
Even if you want a visually simple cake, you and your spouse can still have fun with festive wedding cake flavors rather than sticking to a vanilla or almond white cake recipe. Simply put, a simple exterior does not have to imply a simple interior. If you're icing your cake in white buttercream frosting or draping fondant over the bake, your flavor possibilities are virtually endless.
Take The Entire Cake Table Into Consideration
"Cakes are such a fun focal point throughout the reception," Lachney says, "and there are many ways to create an eye-catching display." The whole presentation of a wedding cake has an impact. No matter how beautiful a cake is on its own, putting it on a simple table without care would detract from the entire effect. However, focusing on the dessert table and organizing it to reflect the wedding's design would mesmerize attendees.
