Our Perfect Wedding: Great wedding cake ideas Image : 250

It’s not every day we see a 7-step sugar coated cake…with a water feature on Our Perfect Wedding. Last week, Eva and Neo upped the game with their gorgeous wedding cake.

We decided to take a look at creative and unique wedding cakes…who knows, you might find some interesting ideas for your big day.


For an elegant cake with a difference, try a china pattern-inspired design. Match the design with your wedding colour scheme for the perfect cake.


Splash out with fresh colour with this wild orchid cake. The bright flowers play off beautifully against the black and white stripes.


Go for simple elegance with this modern square wedding cake.


Ditch the traditional wedding cake for cake pops. These delicious balls of cake with frosting, will be a hit with children and adults alike!


If you are a chocolate fan, make sure it’s part of your big day. A cake doesn’t need buttercream or frosting to be a perfect wedding cake. Chose one bright colour to make the flowers stand out against the dark chocolate fondant.


Why not get a cake that matches your wedding dress? This princess-like, cherry-blossom-covered cake would be perfect with a dress of the same style. Well, that’s if the groom doesn’t mind this very feminine wedding cake.


If you love pearls then this wedding cake would be perfect for your big day. The pearl decoration turns a simple cake into a beautiful fashion statement.


Another idea that moves away from the tradition cake is a tower of cupcakes. Cupcakes are popular around the world and would add a unique touch to your wedding day.


Resist the urge to frost or ice your cake and show off the inside instead. Fresh fruit, like berries, work well for summer weddings.


If you are a young couple in the mood for something fun and different, try cake shooters instead of a cake. There are great recipes for both alcoholic and non-alcoholic cake shooters.
