If you’re going to get married in the winter, embrace the spirit of the season when planning the menu and selecting decorations. Look for ways to incorporate colors and emotions associated with winter in all aspects of your wedding, including the dessert.
Here are some ways to design a winter-themed cake for your nuptials.
Should You Have a White Cake for Winter?
People associate winter with snow. A cake covered with glistening white frosting can bring the essence of winter to your wedding reception. The icing can be sculpted to resemble snowflakes and create the impression of a winter wonderland, or decorative snowflakes can be used to adorn a smooth layer of white frosting.
Another option is to keep the icing simple and decorate the cake with natural elements that reflect the season. A wedding cake with white frosting can look stunning when it’s topped with berries, greenery, and pinecones. When considering a cake for your winter wedding the options are endless with a white cake!
Create a Bold Winter Wedding Cake
Some couples choose to go all out and design a wedding cake with vibrant colors that are sure to drive away the winter blues. If you’re going to get married around Christmas for example, a combination of red and green is an obvious choice that will get people into the holiday spirit.
If your wedding will be held later in the season, you can decorate the cake with a bright shade of blue or green, or a metallic color, such as gold or silver. Anything goes really. There are no rules when it comes to your special day. You might even want to combine two or more colors to create a one-of-a-kind winter wedding dessert. Some couples even choose to have each layer decorated with its own color or use two contrasting colors and alternate between layers.
Choose the Right Cake and Venue for Your Winter Wedding
Your winter wedding cake can be simple and elegant, elaborate and regal, or festive and fun. Select a design for your cake that fits your winter wedding theme.
