Need inspiration for a wedding cake

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Once again i turn to the wise witches and wizards of the cake world for advice...

I am catering for a friends wedding in november and she has also asked me to do the food. its a reception for 80 people, mainly blokey blokes and thier biker molls, and the food served is finger food.
Now i need ideas for the cake!
Something simple, i was thinking a slab or a two tiers, about the couple: shes a wiccan, curvaceous dominatrix and he is her bearded bikie lover. Both such beautiful people i would love to do something special for them. Her dress is royal blue shot silk, (he is coming in his jeans i believe icon_wink.gif )
As you can imagine they arent conventional people so i'd like some different ideas.

Any random ideas would be most welcome!

Since I do wedding cakes almost exclusively, I'll take a shot. I almost always design a cake from the bride's dress. Sooo, I'd be tempted to do a blue fondant cake and then small scrolls, curves, dots , etc in black. (Sort of a Mendhi inspired design. But not Mendhi. That has nothing to do with Wicca. Just going for that sort of design look.)

Well this might be too formal for them but did you happen to see the Ace of Cakes episode where they did a woman out of gumpaste and the rest of the cake was her dress. It had her holding a whip which were beads that flowed down the cake. It was a type of art that I cant remember the name of at the moment but the cake was beautiful. If you go to the charmcitycake.com website and click on the not so tradional stuff its called beardsley. There is also a goth birthday cake that you might be able to use some aspects of it.
Or you could do something with the earth, wind, water, etc thing.

oooo i think you might be onto something there... I was also thinking perhaps i could do a dummy cake and have the real one out the back cut ready to go.
Do you do alot of those?

How about a cupcake tower? Mini cupcakes, or even regular size ones. You can be as unique as you want to with it. Since all of the other food is finger, why not the cake too. I have a few pictures in my photos of cupcakes. You could even make Antonia's stand and display the cupcakes on that. I made the stand and it was less than $50 to make it.

No, more traditional stuff but I know a little bit about it and know that its about Mother Earth and stuff. Ive done a lot of dummy cakes for practice though. If you want to do something that they can save for later, that would be nice thing to do. I would just look more into their traditions and go from there. Like maybe looking into a love spell and make the cake like that.

No, I don't do dummy cakes for wedding and I don't even do sheet cakes. Absolutely, positively refuse. I will do a kitchen cake if the primary cake is at least for 150.

You can use the triple moon goddess symbol:

as motif or as a topper.

Are they having a traditional handfasting or a variation on it?

I'm not sure about any traditional hand fasting but i know there will be some fasting to get into that dress!! i like the idea of using a pagan symbol, its something would appreciate.
So many ideas! Thankyou ladies!

Groom's usually have their own little cakes to show off their personality. They aren't as extravagant as the wedding cake itself, but it is almost always a reflection of the groom, or maybe of the bride and groom together.

There are quite a few ideas here.

I hope you can find something you can use, and still do the pagan symbol wedding cake for the bride. (if that's what you choose to do)

Good luck!

You could do Leahs idea of a blue cake and as the topper make a bride and groom on a motorcycle.
