Posted by Azure on August 27th, 2009
Wedding cakes have long been a way of adding elegance, class, personality, and creativity to a wedding with everything from flowers and pearls to polka dots, stripes, and various shapes.
Whether your wedding cake has flowers, layers, polka dots, bows, or is a traditional wedding cake wi

To celebrate the creativity of this delectable dessert, the Wishpot Wedding Team has compiled a list of some of our favorite wedding cake styles.

(clockwise from top left) Flowers Between Layers: There is nothing new about this wedding cake style but year after year it continues to be a stunning cake with a multitude of variations. The style is so customizable that it works for any color scheme or wedding style. This cake is compliments of Bridal Guide. Cupcake: The cupcake is one of our favorite styles. It adds an adorable, fun element to the wedding while still offering sophistication through the decoration. We also appreciate the flavor flexibility it offers, making it much easier to decide which flavors will be at your wedding! We found this beautiful cake at Bliss Tree. Mod: The mod wedding cake gives the bridal party an opportunity to play around with textures, concepts, colors and patterns. Each cake layer can be completely different from the other and still flawlessly come together to add depth and spunk to any wedding. The mod cake featured above is an image courtesy of The Knot. Classic: The classic wedding cake is the pinnacle of a chic, sophisticated, and feminine wedding cake. We found this gorgeous cake at Unforgettable Weddings.

Polka Dots and Bows: What’s not to love about polka dots or bows? Each adds a touch of playfulness and brightens up any wedding. We especially love how both can be made young and humorous or prim and proper. This particular polka dot cake is from Dream Weddings on a Budget. Mad Hatter: The mad hatter cake is whimsical and youthful and shows the bridal party doesn’t take themselves too seriously, through an endearing Dr. Seuss-esque style. NY Cake Decorators featured this mad hatter delight. Pictures: The picture cake is a great way to highlight memories of the bride and groom as well as their family and friends. By including pictures of the family and friends, it helps to include the wedding attendees and show how important they are! This picture cake is from CakeChannel. Cascade: The cascading wedding cake is also a classic and staple. It’s a great way to incorporate other elements from the wedding, such as color scheme and floral arrangements, into your cake, ultimately tying each detail together. This cascading masterpiece is from Kreation Artisan Cake.
