Wedding cakes come in all shapes and sizes. Many go for the more creative and bold wedding cake theme. But for most, the traditional style wedding cake is the best option. Simple, elegant yet sophisticated can be the most endearing type of wedding cake- and most couples choose this type for their wedding. So we have provided a list of the top 5 traditional wedding cakes for your viewing pleasure. Hopefully you can get a few design ideas for the wedding cake of your future as well.
Wedding cakes designed in this traditional style with modern elements are increasingly more popular these days. The ivory icing with traditional scrolling and pearls combined with glittering cake jewelry on these types of wedding cakes, finished off with an elegant bow in the middle, really bring the best of both traditional and modern into one stunning wedding cake. We at Palermo’s love making these types of sensational wedding cakes to really give the wedding the right kind of atmosphere.
With this stye of wedding cakes, incorporating more of a floral theme, tradition is at its core. Ivory frosting, stylish pipping throughout the cake, pink bow trimming and elegant gumpaste flowers truly make these types of wedding cakes stick out. As with the wedding cake above, the color theme and trim can be made to match the color theme of the bride and bride’s maids. Traditional floral wedding cakes are the essence of elegant and are simply too beautiful to eat!
Once again, floral themed wedding cakes appear in our traditional wedding cakes showdown. Instead of gumpaste edible flowers traversing the cake, wedding cakes with the style above use fresh flower blooms to give the traditional wedding cakes a burst of color and excitement. Here the more traditional silver color theme is used to enhance the white color of the buttercream cake icing on the custom wedding cake. To top it all off, a silver monogram gives this style of custom wedding cakes a personal statement and touch.
A floral cake theme featured once again for number 2 in the countdown. Here, gumpaste flowers have approached perfection in their intricate representation of white roses on top of this elegant wedding cake. A common modern addition to traditional wedding cakes is the addition of cake jewelry to adorn the outer walls of the wedding cakes. Here rhinestone style cake jewelry gives the traditional style a boost of allure, all of which is topped off with a beautiful bouquet of elegant white edible roses on top.
And now for the pièce de résistance. This 6-tier wedding cake is a marvel in itself. A fine merger of the traditional and more avant guard, these kinds of statuesque wedding cakes tower above the wedding reception and symbolize the bountiful love between the bride and groom. For the cake featured above, quilted ivory pearlized fondant paired with simple yet elegant swirl designs dazzle onlookers whilst giving off an air of traditional beauty. A touch of modern glitz was added with sparkling cake jewelry paired with an elegant floral theme on each layer.
