If you are planning a winter wedding, this is the perfect time to design your wedding cake. Winter is a wonderful season in which to embrace a classic all-white cake which is reminiscent of a frosty winter day. Get inspired by these ideas for snowy white winter wedding cakes.
A fantastic way to make an all-white wedding cake interesting is with the use of texture. It will ensure that your confection, while understated, is not the least bit boring. One fantastic idea is to cover a streamlined fondant cake with little sugar “pearls” in a variety of sizes.
Start with more petite edible pearls near the top of the cake, and scatter larger diameter pearls towards the base. Dust with an opalescent powder to make the decorations shimmer just like the genuine pearls in your pearl bridal jewellery. It is a very elegant cake for any winter wedding reception.
Snowflake motifs are always appropriate for wintertime. A beautiful approach to this classic theme is to have the baker use a stamp design to press a snowflake shape around the tiers of the cake.
It will give your dessert a unique arts and crafts feeling, even while making use of a familiar motif. For a more contemporary snowflake cake, the baker can make silver snowflakes from sugar and scatter them down the sides of a white fondant cake. It will remind everyone of softly falling snow.
Winter is cold, but it can also be quite cosy. It would be fantastic to design a wedding cake based on the cosy side of the season. One incredible idea is an all-white or ivory cake frosted in an intricate cable knit pattern.
It will look like a warm fisherman’s sweater! How charming would that be for a wedding in a ski lodge or a New England country inn? Or take a simple cake and add a whimsical sweater inspired detail like a pair of edible pom poms. It would be adorable for an informal winter wedding.
If you like the idea of a snow inspired wedding cake, but prefer not to use a literal snowflake motif, there are some creative things that you can do with texture. Shaved white chocolate dusted over the tiers of a cake can resemble drifts of fresh snow.
Very thin layers of fondant can be used to create a soft ruffle texture that would also be marvellous for a winter wedding. It would be especially wonderful if the bride is planning to wear a wedding gown with a ruffled skirt.
A beautiful cake topper for this style of cake would be a dainty pearl initial. It will complete the white on white effect and also complement the bride’s pearl bridal jewellery set.
Still looking for ideas for a snowy white winter wedding cake? Remember that there are some wonderful white winter flowers that you can recreate in sugar.
It would be very festive to have a white cake decorated with white sugar poinsettias for a holiday wedding (and a nice departure from the expected red and green colours).
Other white seasonal blossoms include amaryllis, paperwhites, and camellias. A classic white wedding cake is a beautiful addition to any winter reception. Ideas of silverlandjewelry.com & Photos of weddingomania.com
