Hi Bees! I’m trying to design our cake (slash steal ideas from pinterest). I found so many cakes that I love, but I can’t choose. I love textures, flowers, and sparkly things. I think I’m looking for something elegant with a touch of wimsy.
We’re having a formal wedding with some modern/whimsical elements mixed in. Our color scheme is: white, buttercream, yellow, light grey, graphite, and tiny bits of black. My dress has pearls and cystals. The boys are wearing black tuxes with bow-ties, and the girls are wearing long, graphite dresses. The flowers will be white, ivory, & yellow. Linens will either be grey or white.
Which cake do you like best? Which do you think will fit our wedding best?
2 (with a yellow flower on top):
3 (with ombre yellow flowers on white cake):
4 (with yellow flower and some silver beads):
8 (yellow flowers and silver beads where white ribbon is):

@PrincessBride27: WOW they are some really beautiful cakes:)
I absolutely love cake 3 it’s amazing. Cake 4 would be my next pick.

Shouldn’t you first figure out how big you want the cake these have anywhere between 3-5 layers that’s a big difference.

@PrincessBride27: I think #8 with the silver beads is a nice combo of the cascading flower idea and the little details idea.

I voted for #3 ombre but irrespective of what you love, keep in mind that the price of several of these cakes will be SUPER expensive so budget may dictate or at least narrow your design choices. #3, 6, and 8 will be the most expensive due to the sugar flowers.

Beautiful cakes! I like 1, 2, 3, and 7, but I voted for cake 1. I think it’s very elegant!

They are all beautiful, but do you realize those are all probably at least $1,000 cakes? My favorites are #2 and #8!

Thank you all for the input!
@Atalanta: Yes, good point. I forgot to mention that we’ll be having a 4 layer cake, regardless of style.
Thanks! Our cake comes free with our venue, so unfortunately (or fortunately) budget won’t help us narrow it down.

@PrincessBride27: Wow! A cake like that comes with the venue?!? That’s awesome! We’re paying an arm and a leg for our venue and don’t even get parking included

I voted that I just love cake (because I do), but I like 2 and 4 the best.

I love 1,2,3, and 7! I’m very similar to you in that I like texture on cakes! Nice picks:)
