10 quirky wedding cake designs that will make you order yours now!
The ‘wedding cake’ craze has slowly set into the Indian wedding scene. Most of the Indian weddings today, either have cakes for the D-day or cakes for at least one of the important functions, but a cake has become quite a must, as part of the celebrations.
Some brides and grooms though, are opting out for cakes with a slight twist, not the quintessential, simple-designed multi-layer cakes. These cakes are vibrant, bursting with colours, creative and attention-grabbing, with an Indian touch of course. There is no missing the eye, uh-uh!
Here’s a list of some cakes, that will make you order yours right away:
1. The peacock cake

This multi-layered peacock theme cake looks pretty delightful. The slightly golden tier is refreshing and breaks the monotony of the blue tiers. The bottom-most part with intricate designs denoting peacock feathers is beautiful and looks almost realistic.
2. Kalash cake

This cake is simple, yet enthralling. The white cloth denotes the bridegroom and the red and gold dupatta denotes the bride tying the knot on their wedding day. The kalash on top of the cake stands for the sanctity and purity of the occasion, coupled with the importance of tradition. The base is a nice fresh lemon yellow, with simple paisley designs, adding the extra colour to the cake.
3. The chunni cake

Red and gold are the two most integral and striking colours of an Indian wedding celebration. This cake is absolutely stunning, with the red, decorated chunni looking a hundred percent realistic, especially because of the attention to detail and the deliberate folds given to the fondant. The white tiers, with minimalistic gold designs at the bottom of each tier, is a nice contrast to the vibrant red.
4. The Dholki cake

This cake is for a mehendi function, and rightly so. It is bursting with colours and the delicate designs and attention to detail on the dholki is spot on. Not to miss the flowers and how real they look. Who would want to even ruin such a cake by cutting it?
5. The elephant theme cake

This cake is no short of an artistic craft. The elephant and the cushions as tiers screams ‘Desi’. The elephant has some exquisite designs on it and the cushions are marvellous. The use of authentic and traditional designs adds to the fun and even though this design is conventional, it cannot be missed.
6. Mehendi design cake

The use of only three bold colours with simple, big designs in yellow makes the cake stand out even without having many complicated designs or anything over-the-top. The designs in yellow are similar to mehendi or henna designs, giving this tri-layered cake a traditional flavour and touch.
7. Dulha-Dulhan cake

The bride and groom are not only the star of the show at the wedding, but also on the cake. The prime colour of this cake is a light shade of lavender. This is a great idea as it allows the rest of the colours to stand out on the figurines of the bride and the groom. The couple looks absolutely fascinating with the dainty designs using fondant and icing. The flowers and butterfly at the bottom of the tier add to the gracious look. This is a big ‘YES’ for anyone who wants a basic yet beautiful cake for their wedding.
8. All-in- one peacock cake

Yet another cake with a peacock theme. However, this cake is much more than just a peacock. For starters, the peacock is not directly used but different elements of a peacock are utilized- such as the feathers and also the colour pallette of the entire cake. The colours are absolutely stunning and vivacious. The cushions used as tiers and the mini-sized dholki at the top, prove that desi-themed cakes can also take you by surprise.
Add a bit of spunk and sparkle to your wedding and opt out for an offbeat cake!
