Romantic Cake Designs

Incorporating floral designs whether real or sugar paste, is a sure fire way of increasing the romanticism of your wedding cake. Take a three-tiered white cake and surround each layer with red rose petals or silver rose petals, or gather individual roses for a fragrant cake topper.

Other romantic floral elements can include pansies, ranunculus, sweet peas, and hydrangea scattered over royal icing or smooth butter-cream. Flowers aren't the only way to increase the romantic feelings of your wedding cake, other methods include decorating techniques. Swiss dot- inspired piping, basket weave patterns, and cakes wrapped like gifts implore the onlookers to think of romance. Top it off with a brilliant cake topper, perhaps doves, entwined hearts or a simple monogram and romance will be all they can think of.

Color can be used to enhance the romantic theme wedding cake. Sheer pastels, such as pinks, yellows, and blues will evoke a fairy-tale setting, while ivory fondant-covered cake remains the most classic symbol for romance. Crown it with a delicate gum-paste garden and edge each layer with an edible version of the bride's wedding gown lace and no one will mistake the romance of the wedding cake.
