Wedding Wednesday | Cool Cakes

It's time for a Wedding Wednesday post that I've been saving up for. There are certain wedding categories that I've found myself pinning on Pinterest more than others. Wedding dresses, table decor, bouquets, and... cakes! I am so amazed at what cake designers can do these days. 

I admit, designing [and tasting of course] was one of my favorite parts of planning my wedding. It was just so cool to see your visions and ideas be drawn into a masterpiece by the cake designer! For Wedding Wednesday today, I wanted to share some totally fun and unique cakes that really just blew me out of this world!

4. Perfect peach cake by Lael Cakes
5. Birdcage cake by The Pastry Garden
6. Beautiful aqua ombre cake with ruffles by Wild Orchid Baking

8. A sequined cake by Sweet Element. I have officially seen it all
9. A romantic vintage cake with faux pearls and pretty gold trim by Cakes by Nadine
10. Moroccan-inspired cake by Love Street Cakes

As I mentioned in this post, turquoise, teal, and aqua might as well be the only colors I can see which is fairly evident after looking back at the cakes that I chose. Oops?

Regardless, I am in love with all of these cakes. If you're a not-super-traditional bride like me, I think you should go ahead and have fun with your cake! Spend time flipping through idea books [or Pinterest] and toss some ideas back and forth with your designer. I guarantee you they'd love to try something new!

So, tell me, which cake would you pick for your wedding? Or are you one of those super traditional brides? ;)
