We also love that these wedding cake decoration are affordable and that these trends won't have you spending a fortune on your wedding. Here are some of the top wedding cake decoration that will have your guests asking who your baker is.
1. Embellish With Real Flowers
The latest trend in wedding cake decorations has been embellishing your wedding cake with real flowers. Not only does decorating with real flowers give an elegant look to your wedding cake, but it's perfect if you already have flowers in play at your wedding. If you have a favorite flower or sentimental flower that you would like to include in your wedding, consider embellishing your wedding cake with it. For example, if you are having a daisy themed wedding, then include daisies as part of your wedding cake decorations.
We love embellishing with real flowers especially if your wedding cake is a tiered cake. You can decorate it yourself or have your baker add on the flowers of your choice. We recommend adding a cluster of flowers on the bottom tier and then tapering the flowers off as you go higher on the tiered cake. Don't forget to also add foliage. A little hint of leaves can add just the right amount of beauty. For a touch of elegance, consider adding flowers on your wedding cake decorations.
2. Pick The Right Cake Toppers
Skip the traditional bride and groom cake topper and have some fun. Add a little humor to your wedding cake by including cake toppers that are goofy as part of your wedding cake decorations. Choose cake toppers that compliment you and your spouse's style. So if you are the one who always takes control of the relationship, then consider a cake topper where the bride is dragging the groom away.
If you are a fun loving couple, then include a wedding cake topper that represents this. A great site to visit to help you do this is Zazzle. Zazzle can customize your cake toppers to your liking. They have cake toppers that can display you and your spouse's names as well as cake toppers that display an image. Check them out to find a cake topper that will meet your needs for all your wedding cake decorations.
3. Choose The Perfect Wedding Cake Base
It's the little things that matter. And in this case, having the perfect wedding cake base can make all the difference. Shop around at your favorite bakers for elegant wedding cake bases. If you have a bland old base, you can still put it to work by dressing it up.
If you want to add a touch of glamour and personalization to your wedding cake decorations, then consider decorating your wedding cake base. Whatever base you plan on placing your wedding cake, have fun and decorate it to your liking. We recommend decorating the base with jewels and gemstones that will add a little sparkle to your wedding cake decorations. For a quick DIY project, pop over to the dollar store where there are germs and rhinestone ribbon you can buy. Your wedding cake doesn’t have to be elegant and a showstopper if the wedding base in which it sits on is.
If you were going to be having a small wedding cake for your celebration, then a beautiful wedding cake stand is even more critical. Having a beautiful wedding cake stand will add to the decor and glamour of your wedding cake decorations. We love that if you choose to incorporate a wedding cake stand, you can use this stand over and over again. An elegant wedding cake stand can also double up as an elegant everyday cake stand to display in your home long after the wedding is over.
4. Go With A Naked Cake
One of the latest trends in wedding cake decorations has been having naked cakes. Essentially, a naked cake is a cake that has frosting in between the different layers of cake but is missing a frosting coating on the outside. A naked cake is beautiful in the sense that you can see right through to the sponge of the cake. There is a distressed almost elegant look to the cake that makes you want to preserve it instead of slice into it. If you dress up a naked cake with embellishments and flowers, you can add an even more appealing look to your wedding cake. Consider this wedding cake decoration if you are planning a outdoor, barnyard, or spring wedding.
5. Squared Wedding Cakes
Who says wedding cakes have to be circular. One of the latest wedding cake decorations is showcasing a squared wedding cake. For a unique look, consider having a squared tiered wedding cake. Instead of stacking the squares symmetrically, stack the second tier at an opposite angle so that it creates a unique diamond look.
6. Multi-Themed Tiered Wedding Cake
One of the latest themes in wedding cake decorations has been taking place with tiered wedding cakes. This classic look takes a color palette and combines it with a wedding cake to give unique character to your wedding cake decorations. To really pull this look off, you will want to vary the looks of your different layers.
The standard staple for this style looks like this. You will want the bottom layer of your tiered wedding cake to have the most eccentric and elegant decorations. This is where you will go all out with your flowers and embellishments. The next layer on top of your bottom layer should be a solid color (within your color palette of course). However, you will want to dress up this layer as well. Consider perhaps having a fondu shimmer coating that stands out. Your last layer should be the simplest with a hint of the wedding cake decorations that were used on the bottom layer of the wedding cake.
Having a different look for each layer of your wedding cake adds a lot of character to any wedding cake. The key to pulling off these unique wedding cake decorations, however, is sticking to colors that are within the same color palette.

If you are not the baker type, you can purchase some premade wedding cookies from online retailers such as Wilton. Some customization that we recommend includes the names of the bride and groom as well as the date of your wedding. You can also choose from premade standard wedding cookies. Customize your wedding cookies however you'd like to add an added touch of elegance to your wedding cake decorations.
8. Wedding Cake Pops

We love that when making your own cake pops you can choose the candy coating color so that they can fit the theme of your wedding cake decorations. Not only that, but you can customize your cake pops by adding sprinkles and embellishments that will have your guests asking you where you ordered your cake pops from. Be sure to individually wrap each cake pop and tie it with a beautiful ribbon so that they remain sanitary and have added a touch of professionalism. For even more personalization, add on a thank you card, or a card with the name of you and your groom. And of course, don't forget to add the date of your wedding.
