Different types of wedding cake decorations
Wedding cakes are now colorful and decorated with all kinds of unique items. Here is a small list of different types of wedding cake decorations you can use on your own wedding cake!
Fondant decorations for your wedding cake
Fondant is an edible clay like substance that can be used to cover wedding cakes to give them a very smooth look that is elegant. But fondant can be used to make shapes too and applied to wedding cakes. You can use fondant to make a monogram using your initials and have it applied to your wedding cake. Or you can have fondant cut into the shape of your wedding invitation design or wedding motif (like a seashell, flower, logo, or whatever unique theme your wedding is being designed around) and have it applied to your wedding cake.
Gum paste flowers for decorating wedding cakes
Gum paste is a thick substance that can be molded into realistic looking flowers that are edible and can be applied to your wedding cake. Wedding cakes covered with gum paste flowers always look elegant and beautiful. You can customize your wedding cake to have gum paste flowers that match your bouquet, or match your wedding invitation flower design.
Fresh flowers for decorating wedding cakes
Fresh flowers are an ideal choose for wedding cakes because they are beautiful and affordable in most cases. Just make sure you or your wedding cake baker uses only pesticide free flowers that will not contaminate your wedding cake frosting. You don't want your wedding cake guests getting sick! Make sure wedding cakes are decorated with fresh flowers no earlier than the morning of your wedding. Flowers can wilt quickly especially in warm weather. You want your wedding cake to look beautiful so keep your flowers fresh!
Wedding Cake jewelry for decorations
A new trend is to decorate wedding cakes with jewels and beads. You can put a bejeweled wedding cake topper of your initials on top of your wedding cake. Or you can use ribbon covered with sparkly beads to wrap around each tier of your wedding cake. Just be careful beads or jewels don't make it on to your wedding guests plate since they are not edible. Wedding cake jewelry is a great way to decorate your wedding cake because wedding cake jewelry can be saved and kept as a sentimental token of your wedding. You can also make your own wedding cake jewelry using wire and elegant crystal beads. The possibilities are endless with wedding cake jewelry!
