A wedding cake isn’t just a tasty treat to delight in after dinner anymore—it’s a actually an edible three-dimensional canvas! Reality shows like Cake Boss and Ace of Cakes are perfect examples of the extreme effort bakers and artists put into hand-painted cakes. A hand-painted wedding cake is the perfect staple for any high-class wedding, and your guests will delight in its appearance just as much as its scrumptious taste.
Opt for a textural look with hand-painted ombre ruffles or floral appliques or choose refined, smooth fondant painted with a delicate floral pattern. If you have no idea what you want your cake to look like look to other elements of your wedding for inspiration. Your hand-painted wedding cake could reflect the pattern of your bridesmaids’ dresses, your favour bags, your stationery or even the vintage china dishes you’re using atop your reception tables!
