Wedding Cakes Pictures

When searching for inspiration, looking at wedding cakes pictures can do just the trick. Sometimes it can be most helpful to see what other people have done to help articulate your vision.

It really does take a lot of little elements on a wedding cake to bring it all together. What will the flavor of the cake and icing be? What will the wedding cake decorations look like? Will there be a wedding cake topper? If so, what kind? Or maybe go for a completely different cake then the traditional wedding cake - like a cake made out of donuts?!

Like I said, looking at wedding cakes pictures can help bring all these little details together for the grand vision. But, if you're not careful, it can be overwhelming if you look at too many. There are so many resources out there, a girl could get real dizzy.

In an attempt to make your life a wee bit easier, I've gathered a list of different wedding cake features to consider followed by a list of links that can offer some beautiful wedding cake galleries.

Show off what you've done with your wedding cake!

Textures

Textures can be anything you can think of from a basket weave icing to a fondant that resembles lace to a metallic finish using edible gold leaf.

Floral

A floral wedding cake can be as simple or involved as you want. This can consist of having a small flower arrangement on the top of a white cake to the entire cake being covered in flower petals.

Beach

Use your wedding cake to highlight your love for the beach. Think sand on your toes and sugar on your tongue. This style wedding cake can go from the tropical themed to reflecting the deep blues of the ocean.

Cupcakes

Having cupcakes as your wedding cake, or even to accent your wedding cake, has become a hip new trend with today's brides. It creates a fun, custom look at your dessert table and puts a new spin on the cake cutting ceremony giving it a more casual feeling.

Alternative Cakes

If you have your very own style and like doing things a little differently than the mainstream, there are other wedding cake options out there just for you. You can go slightly off the beaten path with mini wedding cakes, chocolate fondue or cake shooters. Or you can really let your freak flag fly and have your wedding cake made out of donuts or Twinkies. I say more power to ya! Using Twinkies will save you a boat load of dough! Pun fully intended.
