Hawaiian Cakes – How about leis as a cake topper? Or a hula bride figurine enticing the groom on the top of the cake? The cake could be wrapped with a sarong, or beach umbrella, Hawaiian cocktails, pineapples, or anything else Hawaiian could be incorporated. Beach Colored Cakes – Just want to use beach themed colors? Stick with white, tan, off-white, teal, and of course, blue. The use of blue can be subtle as the color of the frosting, or air brushed onto the outside of the cake for a blended or accented look.
Why White? White is definitely the color of a wedding, but did you know that there is another reason why the white is the customary color of a wedding cake? Back in Victorian times the finer ingredients of a wedding cake were scarce and hard to come by. If the cake had a white icing, this revealed the fact that only the best and most expensive white sugar was being used. Brown sugar was much more common, and therefore much less expensive. So, the more white the cake, the richer the people.
You may want to tie into the architectural theme of the reception space and have Art Deco styling with zig-zags, or Classical columns and arches, or Contemporary simplicity with rectangles, angles and folds that mimic a Frank Gehry-music hall. If you and your fiance (or fiancee) are both musicians, you may want to share your love of music by inviting your guests to nibble on a Baby Grand confection or a Rock-and-Roll guitar. Marrying a Swede? Perhaps you want to eat the country, symbolically that is, in a blue-and-yellow flag-designed sheet cake outlining the country’s geographical shape. Did you and your spouse-to-be meet through the Star Trek convention or you share a love of Halloween?
The Version of Today, In today’s world the elaborate wedding cake is no longer reserved for the rich and famous. Every couple can share in the tradition of having a wedding cake added to their big day. The wedding cake specialists of today’s world have taken their art to towering heights (pardon the pun). Long gone are those bland days when you were limited to a white cake with white frosting. Although a white cake will probably always be the most popular due to its traditional meaning, today’s couple is limited only by the limits of their imagination (and budget) when it comes to their wedding cake.
