Planning & Inspiration
Pretty Sweet: Wedding Cakes Inspired by Flowers
Flowers are our specialty. But we admit to having a sweet tooth and always look forward to seeing the wedding cakes that our brides have chosen to commemorate the day! Most often, these delicious creations make a statement, and add to the décor and atmosphere. And it’s a special treat when the design incorporates our floral motifs. The classic bride may opt for traditional white. Fresh blooms with heart accents are perfect for the ever-dreaming romantic. A towering confection embellished with cascading flowers is fit for a queen.
For the bride-to-be planning for her upcoming nuptials, we rounded up gorgeous, floral inspired cakes from our Real BB Weddings for inspiration.
One way to make a wedding cake a vision is to artfully arrange flowers in romantic hues. Cascading blush quicksand roses, burgundy and marsala ranunculus, cream garden roses, and ivory spray roses look absolutely wonderful on this cake by Sweet Pistachio.
This wedding takes a charming, yet sophisticated approach to the heart motif. Clusters of purple and soft pink roses decorate each tier alongside glistening gold hearts that culminate in a statement topper proclaiming “Happily Ever After.”
Celebrated wedding cake designer Ron Ben-Israel is behind this jaw-dropping five-tier tower. The cake features cascading orchids and gold detail, matching the wedding blooms and gilded ornamentation of the iconic St. Regis.
White on White
There’s nothing more timeless and beautiful than an all white wedding. White peonies and spray roses placed on each tier of this simple cake add style and texture, making the design an instant classic.
Pale pink is a color that brings to mind the whimsical side of French femininity. Channeling the idea, this show stopping cake erupts in a fanciful burst of sugary blooms. It looks too pretty to eat!
We love when floral décor celebrates the essence of the season like the blossoms at this summer wedding at Battello Restaurant. Clusters of ivory spray roses and blue thistle give this cake a fresh garden-inspired feel.
Vivid color paired with contemporary styling dazzles the eye. Sugar blooms in moody purple, fuchsia, and red adorn a unique multi-textured design by Madison Lee Cakes.
You can’t help but be inspired by your wedding venue if it’s as beautiful as Blue Hill at Stone Barns. The grounds encapsulate nature’s beauty. Baked in Blue Hill’s kitchen, this pretty cake features an organic arrangement of peach Juliet roses, pink peonies, and blush spray roses.
Designed by Lauren Bohl White of A White Cake, this decedent number features sugar peonies, roses, and hydrangeas. Looking so real, it could easily be mistaken as a table centerpiece!
All white blooms are a great choice for the modern bride. Another work of art by Ron Ben-Israel, this cake presents a billowing arrangement of white flowers atop a sleekly frosted base.
Wedding Blooms featuring peonies, ranunculus, and roses in delicate pastel shades were the muses for this sweet creation by Cake Alchemy.
A great wedding cake pleases more than just your sense of taste! We hope these eye-popping deserts help you design your dream wedding cake!
