Have them flavored with coconut, white chocolate, black chocolate, black coffee, fondant, and topped with sugarpaste flowers.
If you love colors, then cakes flaunting modern art should be your pick. A blend of different colors, patterns and textures creating various designs would be a hot favorite in the year 2011. Let your guests keep guessing the theme of the cake and what it actually portrays. They sure will have a nice time doing so.
Traditional With A Hint Of Contemporary
In case you are one of those who love traditions and cultures, ask your baker to bake a traditional cake, but with a touch of contemporariness. After all, you are marrying in the modern world, then why should the cake be an entirely old-fashioned one. Have plainer, square-shaped cakes with delicate decorations. Get them twisted to sharper angles rather than the customary smoother, rounded look. For a vintage touch, use gold decorative accessories.
France, Italy, Maldives, Goa, Switzerland or Mauritius, you have a reason to celebrate your love. Then why not bring them down to your wedding cake just before you fly off to your honeymoon destination. Be it Eiffel Tower, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Taj Mahal, Potala Palace, Statue of Liberty, or Sphinx of Giza, you have numerous options to get your wedding cake designed to start your new life.
Love the nature? Then why leave it in the background? Bring the magnificent scenic views onto your wedding cake to leave your guests spellbound and mouth-opened. Have your wedding cake shaped into trees or mountains with highlights of rivers, ponds, birds, animals, gardens, and reptiles. Use accessories like fountains, sprinklers, swings, bird houses, and benches to add to your picturesque nature cake.
