Tasty and Pretty: Flowers for Cakes
The Trend of Floral Cakes
By Jessie Reid
One thing every guest looks forward to at a wedding: The cake! They may not remember your first dance song, the color of your table linens or to even grab their favor on their way out the door, but your family and friends will always remember your wedding cake. The way it tasted AND looked!
Rightfully so, wedding cakes with flowers are one of the most popular big day desserts. Incorporating your floral scheme into your cake adds vibrancy to an otherwise simple cake, all at a relatively low cost. Couples can skip pricier cake decor - like elaborate toppers or elegant fondant desings - in favor of floral adornments.
And for those looking to splurge on sugar flowers, you can achieve an artsy and edible decorated cake. Not to mention the endless options of color and design with faux flowers.
Couples looking to stick with the traditional topper can still incorporate flowers in their design. Consider flower buds and greenery cascading down from your initials, or simple petals surrounding the cake base. You really can have it all!
Check out these beautiful wedding cakes with flowers from bakers across the country. With countless options, including hand-painted, cascading, single-bloom, and overloaded-floral styles, it's impossible not to find a delicious confection you absolutely love.

"You need to make sure you hire professionals with good reputations. But it's especially important that you like two vendors on your wedding day team - really like them. You should want to be friends with your planner and your photographer. You should look forward to your meetings with them. Clicking with these two people is super important because they are literally in your space on the wedding day. They can absolutely make a difference in how much you enjoy your big day." - Christy Matthews
