Wedding cakes have been around for centuries, and even though the symbolism has drastically changed, this sweet final course is just as prevalent. There are some truly amazing wedding cakes out there, and as time goes on, couples are getting more and more creative with wedding cake designs. It's becoming increasingly common to tie the wedding cake into the overall wedding theme, which means that some ridiculously incredible cakes are being created, like these from Oak Mill Bakery. Use these fantastic wedding cake designs as inspiration to ensure your wedding dessert is everything you dreamed and more.
While most couples are sticking with the wedding cake tradition, hosts are increasingly showcasing small wedding cakes in addition to another dessert option, like passed sweets, sundae stations, or candy bars. Amongst this list of 18 Wedding Cake Designs to Steal, you'll find cakes of all shapes and sizes, allowing you to serve them on their own or alongside a trendy dessert idea.
Some couples are even maintaining the large size in a sneaky way. The top few layers are delicious sugary goodness and the rest of the cake is fake. This lowers prices but maintains the traditions of cutting the cake and eating the top layer on the first anniversary. Separate dessert is then served, whether that be a less expensive cake with frosting rather than fondant or another creative sweet treat.
Regardless of how you choose to serve your wedding cake, make sure it is uniquely you and that it fits in perfectly with the rest of your celebration. Below, you'll find 18 beautiful wedding cakes that range from traditional to unique, and colorful to classically mute. Let them eat cake!
