Adore the glamor of yesteryear? Go retro with romantic and floral vintage wedding cakes. This is a great idea if you are rocking the pearls or lace on your dress on your wedding day.
Vintage wedding cakes can easily turn into the center of attention at a reception. Hand-painted, romantic, adorned with lace, or with brocade details that evoke old memories from our grand-parent’s times.
Let’s delve into the world of vintage cakes loaded with fondant, buttercream, pearls, sugar roses and antique decor.
What Makes a Wedding Cake Vintage Inspired?
There are thousand of different ways to achieve the timeless vintage look for your cake. The classic elegance of pearls is often found in the details of the vintage cake. Actual lace can be placed on the cakes or even piped lace. You can mimic your wedding dress’ lace design, add a cascade of fresh flowers or sugar flowers in pink, lilac, green or beige. If you are using bird cages on your decor, crown your vintage wedding cake with a cage filled with baby’s breath.
The soft pastel vintage colors, the opulent juxtapositions of lace and pearls, hand-painted masterpieces will add a layer of sophisticated elegance and beauty to your wedding cake.
Go fancy with playful black and white polka dots or give a nod to the lace. Incorporating jewelry – like brooches or beads and even more fashionable than lace – is what really adds that touch that sets it apart from other vintage designs. If jewelry on the vintage wedding cake is not really your thing, subtle and glossy edible pearls may be just what suits your style. A gold leaf finish over the wedding cake adds a refined elegance and takes it all the way to the Gatsby era.
Wanting to put your own stamp on a traditional style? A modern twist on a vintage cake may be just for you.
