Weddings with all-white theme are very popular in this decade just as they were during the last and would probably be in the next. One of the primary attractions of these weddings are the snow white cakes that attract the attention of guests and the couple alike. However, many brides still hunt for ways to augment the exquisite ivory confectioneries with intriguing design elements in order to make them personalised and unique. Given below are some interesting ways for accessorising snowy and ivory wedding cakes in Brisbane:
Pearls and Crystals
Pearls and crystals would add an exotic visual effect without the usage of colour. Selecting crystals that match the shade of the bridal gown would be more than just ideal. They can either be wrapped around the tiers or used for decorating the cake stand.
If the tiers are stacked on top of each other, it would not be a bad idea to embellish their bases by wrapping white peonies around them. In case the cake stand is pillared, crimson roses can be stacked in the middle of the tiers for hiding the pillars.
This one is the easiest of all ways for decorating a white wedding cake. Tying plain ribbons around the base of each tier can help in creating a modern and elegant look which works well with the theme of the wedding.
Textured and Alternative Icing
Vertically striped chunky icing or big polka dots is a fashionable option. Applying the icing in a patterned or textured manner can up the wow factor of the wedding cake. One can even have white chocolate or buttercream icing rather than the regular fondant icing in order to create a delicious and exotic effect.
Adding a simple swirling black pattern, a few black polka dots or some black flowers to a white wedding cake can make it look ultra-modern. This method has been fashionable for quite a long time now.
Having a customised topper made in the form of a caricature of the couple can add a lot of fun to the cake. One can also opt for something else, as long as the choice of the topper is kept distinct and appealing.
Ivory wedding cakes can always be adorned using different kinds of white embellishments like flowers, butterflies, tulle bows or lovebirds. Not only will they help in creating a texture, but also impart elegance to the tiers.
