Red And White Wedding Cake

Gathering your favorite wedding images is one of the most fun parts of wedding planning, especially when it comes to your wedding cake. Sugar flowers, hand-painted details and intricate piping—they’re all so dreamy.  As fun as it is to look at pretty pictures, it’s actually really helpful too. You’ll start to recognize cake details that you like (and a few things you don’t). Then when you’re meeting with your potential cake baker you can tell them exactly what you’re looking for and ask to see specific examples of designs you know you like. Start your search below with 25 of the prettiest wedding cakes we’ve ever seen.

Red And White Wedding Cake

3 of 15 Peppermint Fantasy Cake This red, white, and pink confection would be perfect at a snowy winter wedding. We displayed our whimsical cake among an enchanted forest of peppermint topiaries. Our cake board is a round piece of wood; we coated it with royal icing, wrapped the edge with ribbon, and affixed candies to the edge.

No rule says you have to have round tiers—playing with different shapes can be a fresh take on a classic confection. And if you love the design on your cake, ask your baker to extend it to the top tier for a built-in topper.    Cake by Maggie Austin Cake, MaggieAustinCake.com

12 of 15 Fruits Confits Making fruits confits, or candied fruit, is a slow process in which the water in fruit is gradually replaced by sugar syrup. A cascade of the sweet gems shines against a pure white cake; the fruit calls for a tart counterpart, which comes in a lemon-zest sponge cake with vanilla mousse and pineapple confit. The green stalks are angelica, an edible plant. Photography: Gentl & Hyers

An all-white confection is the perfect backdrop for elegant blooms. Clematis is a vine floral, so even though this version isn’t the real thing, it looks practically identical, and you wouldn’t have to worry about hot weather wilting the blooms. Cake by Maggie Austin Cake, MaggieAustinCake.com

This simple, all-white design is full of frilly texture. Each layer has its own smattering of three-dimensional petals, giving the cake a fanciful look and feel. Cake by Nine Cakes, NineCakes.com

9 of 15 Tower of Roses Each tier in this cake is frosted with ivory buttercream and alternated with several types of roses, such as “Sabara,” shaped in tiers of the same height. The flowers, in varying hues of beige, are anchored in a central core of oasis, which keeps them fresh for hours. The oasis is shielded from the cake by plastic separators and camouflaged by the flowers. Photography: Maria Robledo

One way to make a round cake feel a little more unique is to highlight just one of the layers by coating it with a three-dimensional detail, like flowers and dragees. Cake by Cheryl Kleinman Cakes, CherylKleinman-Cakes.com

On a budget? Look no further than fresh flowers (which can be a fraction of the cost of the sugar variety). Swirled vanilla buttercream and piped pearls give this simple design character, while pink blooms make the cake party ready. Cake by Baked NYC, BakedNYC.com

You can still make a statement with your cake even if you go with a minimalist design approach. Simplify all of the tiers expect for one—this can be the bottom, top or somewhere in the middle. You’ll save on labor costs but won’t have to sacrifice on style. Cake by Butterfly Bakeshop, ButterflyBakeshop.com

Instead of clusters of sugar flowers, make a big statement with a gorgeous big bloom. A brocade finish gives the white tiers texture and visual interest, while a white peony with cascading petals steals the spotlight. Cake by Ana Parzych Cakes, ConnecticutWeddingCakes.com

An oversize bloom, a twist on the sugar flower cascade, anchors this carefree design and proves that a single stem can make a big impact. Gold details on the leaves and petals capitalize on the metallic trend and create a luxe feel. Cake by Cheryl Kleinman for Betty Bakery, BettyBakery.com
