How to Add Color to Your Wedding Cake

Your wedding cake should be more than just another wedding menu element. This is not just pure dessert – it’s a complement to your entire wedding decor and theme, a statement, and, ultimately, a symbol of your sweet future together.

How do you add color to your wedding cake and make sure it looks amazing? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • What is your wedding style? Every wedding style comes with a more or less pre-set range of colors – so why not steal inspiration from that when creating your wedding cake? For instance, blue and pink is a classic romantic combination – and there are literally thousands of ways to include them in your wedding cake. A very sophisticated way of doing it is by focusing on a different color on each of your wedding cake tiers (a white one, one with blue pattern, and one entirely pink, for example).
  • Do you want something very elegant, or something very casual? For instance, golden touches (or silver, or rose gold, for that matter) can instantly make a wedding cake look more opulent and luxurious – so if you want a very fancy wedding, this is a great idea.
  • On the other hand, if you want a casual, laid back wedding, why not focus on green and white? This combination is amazing from so many points of view – it will instantly freshen up your cake, it’s easy to pull off, and works with a myriad of wedding themes, depending on how you incorporate the green (e.g. you can ask your pastry chef to create green fondant roses if you want something a bit more romantic, or simply to work fresh greenery into the wedding cake décor if you want something nature-inspired).
  • Have you considered including more than one-two colors? You can totally do this – you can even have a rainbow-colored wedding cake if that mirrors your personality. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your wedding cake’s décor – that’s how unique ideas are born, and that’s how you will totally WOW your guests!
