Your wedding cake is the showpiece of your food table. When your guests enter the reception room, you want them to look at it and gasp in awe. That’s part of the fun! Nowadays, there are all sorts of ways to ensure that your cake is the centre of attention. I Do Knot has come up with a couple of ideas to help you dress your cake up and make it as unique as you are.

Not much can beat a classic white cake for a classic white wedding. However, there are ways to jazz up even the most traditional of cakes. One option is to use a unique cake topper which is bespoke to you and your other half…in fact, one of I DO KNOT‘s most trusted vendors could hand paint a topper to look just like the 2 of you…literally, up to the tiniest detail!

Other ideas for cake toppers are plentiful:  for instance, are both of you animal lovers? Well, you can find any variety of animal toppers to put at the peak of your cake. Both fans of a certain movie? A good search on the internet should yield cake toppers made in the likeness of characters from a number of films and television programmes…if you cannot find them available, we can have them custom-made for you!

For those romantics amongst you, there are myriad ways to make your cake look just dreamy. Cakes can be covered in various kinds of precious stones. And no, it won’t be prohibitively expensive as these can be made out of sugar! Another trend is to cover the side of the cake with flowers – sugared or fresh – which makes it look really pretty and is ideal for a beach or summer wedding giving it as much colour as you want and also incorporating it within your wedding colour scheme.

For a winter wedding, you could stick with white but go for a cut-out snowflake theme, perhaps. Or else, add black or gold fondant, which always makes for an elegant cake covering.

Of course, if you’re planning a destination wedding, then you can’t beat something a little local. For your Maltese wedding we can propose a plethora of cake topped ideas with a Maltese twist, including with customised figured made from local ingredients or products, or made by local artisans. Choosing this options will certainly give your guests something to talk about on the big day, and help them to get to know Malta better.

And finally, for those amongst you who really want to break with tradition, you can eschew tiered cakes completely and going for something really different – cupcakes! You can arrange them really nicely and colour-code them to match the bridesmaid’s dresses or the venue décor. It will be picture-perfect and very true to you!
