With the popularity of shops like Etsy and inspirational sources like Pinterest, there have never been more unique and personalized wedding cake toppers available. Although fun and quirky, never underestimate or overlook the classic and beautiful quality a fresh set of flowers can have on your wedding cake. And if you’re looking to save on the design of your cake, a bunch of bold flowers is an easy solution.
This three tier cake ordinarily would be plain and run-of-the-mill with its white fondant-covered layers. However, the design goes from simple to smashing with a myriad of color cascading down the creation. With a trendy ombre-like quality, the flowers transcend from light purple, to hearty red, to orange, to pale pink and finally, white for an artistic take on the classic addition of flowers.

One can also experiment with different types of flowers. Roses are gorgeous but there are also many options for unique and interesting concepts. This three-tier buttercream frosted cake is accentuated with various wild yellow and green flowers that add height. Pink and coral-colored flowers line down the center of the design to create a beautiful focal-point to tie all the wedding colors back together.

Sometimes, less really is more – especially if there is a bold flower you absolutely love. This white four-tier cake is lined with pearl detail and frosted in a linear way. Four dark pink peonies sit singularly on a different layer, offering contrast on each side. On a seemingly blank canvas, they make quite the impact.

Flower accents can also look modern. This five-layer cake is mostly covered in white fondant with a singular gold tier in the middle. A large, light pink dahlia sits in the center surrounded by white roses and small clusters of tiny white flowers. Anchored at the base of the cake is a wreath of eucalyptus leaves and a centered white peony flower. The color doesn’t always have to come from flowers but rather, their green counterparts.

Flowers can be fun and trendy, too, just like other creative options in the wedding marketplace. It’s the natural, fresh quality of a floral accent that transforms a beautiful cake into a classic focal point of elegance.
