Unique Wedding Cake {and Cupcake} Ideas Your Guests Will Love

When it comes to your wedding day, it's fun to spread cake {or edible goodness} into every moment of your wedding day. I'm thrilled to share these Wedding Cake Ideas from the blog's Pro Team Member Davina of Hallmark Events and Wedding Styling in London with you.

Here's some Unique Ideas to Spread Wedding Cake {or edible} Sweetness Into Your Wedding Day in a Way Your Guests Will Be Sure to Love

Suspended or Uniquely Stacked Wedding Cake

There's stacked wedding cakes and then there's STACKED wedding cakes in unique shapes. Like this stunning one from Elizabeths Cake Emporium in London. Isn't this fantastic with the hand-painted flowers?

Personalized Cupcake Toppers

How fun is this idea? Present your guests their very own wedding dessert with a cupcake topped with a glittery name.

Cupcake Favor Boxes

Your guests will love being sent home with a sweet reminder of your wedding to enjoy either later or the next day {maybe for breakfast?}. These great cupcake favor boxes are the perfect choice to hold your wedding cupcakes in. You can choose from a rustic design, clear box style or a silver elegant box design. Which one will you choose?

Cupcake Favor Boxes - send your wedding guests home with a sweet surprise. Wedding Cupcakes for breakfast anyone?

Individual Wedding Cakes for each Table {or guest}

Why not surprise each guest with their very own mini cake at their place setting? You could even have one mini wedding cake as the table centerpiece that is just the right size to feed all at the table. And, think outside the box and go for something not expected. Maybe something with chocolate, frosting and fresh berries . . . like these Mini Double Chocolate Berry Cakes from The Kitchen McCabe

Easily Dress Up Your Wedding Cake with One Large Flower

Many say that having fresh flowers on your wedding cake is a no no. So, I say, why not place an everlasting bloom on your wedding cake? And, why not make it one BIG flower? I'm loving these handmade single flower wedding cake toppers. Some are made with clay, others are sugar paste flowers and each will last indefinitely for a treasured keepsake. You may have even noticed that one of these blooms was the handmade wedding find of the week {graphic in the side banner column}. These flower cake toppers are also perfect for bridal showers too.
