Having winter wedding cakes just seems to be understood when it comes to having winter weddings. They are becoming more popular these days. Wedding season used to be just the Spring and Summertime. But now the whole year seems to be the right time for holy matrimony!
There are a lot of things to consider when designing the winter cakes, whether you are having it custom made or making it yourself.
Fruits, berries and melons seem to be more of the summertime flavors. So what about winter flavors?
Try to stick with more rich or warm spice type flavors.For example, try a pumpkin spice cake with a cream cheese icing, or an orange cake with a dark chocolate icing, or a buttered rum cake with caramel icing.
The wintery theme can really come out when it is decorated. If you cover the cake in coconut flakes it would look a lot like a snowball cake. Or if you cover it in sugar, it will have that shiny finish of ice.
You could also add elements that are associated with the season like pine cones or decorative snowflakes. Use colors that are like icy blue and white or deep rich colors like deep red, brown and gold.
You can get real creative with your wedding cake topper on a winter wedding cake. Shop around, look in vintage shops and online, and you can find the cutest winter cake topper.
A pair of eskimos rubbing noses or the bride and groom wearing skis are fun ideas. You can also go for the more elegant and choose a tree with crystals on the limbs representing the ice and snow. The important thing is to have fun with it.
