You will want your wedding cake style to reflect your overall wedding style and color scheme. If your wedding is casual, your cake can be anywhere from casual to formal. However, if your wedding is formal, you will want your cake design to be formal as well. A stately cake design nicely complements a formal affair with its tall, heavy shape, and elegant tiers. Many cake designers incorporate the use of fountains and floral arrangements between layers, creating a beautifully sophisticated effect. Separating the wedding cake’s layers also helps make the cake seem lighter and airier.
Smaller, less formal cakes can be prepared with subtle appointments such as candied pearl swags, sugared bells, and gum paste flowers tinted to coordinate with your color scheme. Smaller cakes do not need to be tiered if they graduate to a delicate ornament. A simply decorated wedding cake of unusual flavor can be a strong but quiet presence.
