The white weddings have become a very popular choice nowadays. After all, white is a very fashionable color for fresh wedding themes. And now there is also a move away from bright colored icing and a return to traditional white wedding cakes. However, with all these, the contemporary brides are left with one dilemma-how to create a modern and fresh look with white and prevent the cake from looking outdated?
As a maker of creative wedding cakes in Brisbane, here I have provided a few ways that can be followed for adding a modern edge to the white wedding cakes.
Add a contrast with black
Monochrome theme is quite popular in wedding cakes. So, if you want you can go for it. You just need to add a black swirl pattern, a few black flowers or a few black polka dots to the white cakes. The pattern is sure to make the wedding cake look up to date.
Use alternative icing
We basically expect a white fondant icing when thinking of white wedding cakes. But there is no reason you mustn’t use the white butter cream icing. You can also use white chocolate to get a delicious taste and unusual effect.
It is a very simple accessory that can be added to the white wedding cakes. All you need to do is put a simple ribbon wrapped around base of every tier. This will give a modern as well as a sophisticated look and will go beautifully with the wedding theme.
Pearl and crystal accessories
Pearl and crystal are both perfect for accessorizing white wedding cakes because they add a new dimension without adding any color. You can choose stones, which will best match with your dress and wrap them all over the cake tiers. If you want, you can also decorate the cake stand using these jewels.
Make it same like your wedding gown
The white wedding cakes are the best opportunity to use detail of your gown in cake design. Design details like beading or embroidery can be imitated using piping, appliqué patterns and delicate iced flowers.
Make use of fresh flowers
Piling the fresh flowers on to the white wedding cakes brings the flowers to life. If you have a pillared cake stand, stack the white roses in between tiers for hiding the pillars. If you’re having three to four tiers, try piling the white peonies around base of every tier.
Add a topper
A topper is a great way of adding interest to the wedding cake. Have a bespoke topper that matches with your personality and your groom.
