4 Wedding Cake Decorations That Won’t Break The Bank

By September 24, 2017May 28th, 2019No Comments
Not everyone wants or can afford a huge, over the top wedding cake. Luckily, there are a variety of options for smaller cakes that are just as big on style as those with three or four tiers. Here are a few ideas to consider if you’re thinking about going with a smaller cake for your wedding.

Decorate with flowers

Flowers are an easy go-to when it comes to topping cakes. There are a variety of edible flowers to choose from including alliums, basil blossoms, and carnations. There are also many wedding cake designers who can create beautiful, realistic looking flowers out of sugar and icing. If you don’t plan to serve your cake, you can also work with your florist to set aside some blossoms specifically for your dessert. While you can’t eat roses or irises, they make beautiful decorations.

Use fruit

Fruits come in an array of colors that can suit any wedding theme. For a colorful wedding cake topper, try dried or candied fruit, such as oranges or strawberries. You can even use an arrangement of whole fruit with apples, cherries, or plums. Pomegranate seeds are a great way to add a pop of color as a garnish around the bottom of the wedding cake.

Try candy decorations

Another fun way to create beautiful wedding cake decorations is with candy. Almost any candy you can think of will work. Rock candy in various colors can look as though you’ve showered your cake in crystals. You can wrap ribbon-style taffy around the width of the dessert, or use candy shaped like stars or hearts. These days, sweet confections come in so many shapes and sizes, your options are endless.

Cake toppers

This is another area of wedding cake decoration that is virtually limitless. Cake toppers make it especially easy to ensure that your dessert matches the theme of your wedding. Toppers can give your cake a little extra height too, which can create style and help you stay on budget. Wedding cake toppers can be made from a variety of materials, even balloons. You can go the traditional route and search for figurines that resemble you and your spouse-to-be. You can also choose something entirely unique. For example, if you’re going with a beach theme, you can top your wedding cake with muscles and seashells. Just make sure they are thoroughly cleaned first. Let your imagination run wild here. Look online at sites like Etsy to get some good ideas of what you have to work with.
