When it comes to wedding cakes, those with fabulous floral designs have always been a popular choice for couples. Whether you’re dreaming of something simple and elegant or a design that’s outrageously extravagant, wedding cakes with flowers really do offer endless possibilities. Indulge in some delicious wedding cake inspiration and take a peek at our 15 favourite floral wedding cakes…

It’s impossible not to fall in love with a wedding cake adorned with beautiful blooms, no matter what your wedding theme or colour scheme may be. Effortlessly adaptable, it’s easy to design a floral wedding cake to fit in with and enhance your wedding day. There are absolutely no rules with wedding cakes so if you want a wedding cake covered in glittering gold icing and show-stopping blooms, you can! Similarly, you can quite simply opt for a chic white cake with a single bloom atop.

Metallic wedding cakes have recently become a huge hit, so why not team this tasty trend with fresh flowers? Your wedding cake will be a delightful combination of modern style and traditional elegance. You could opt for one layer to be covered in sparkling sequin-inspired icing, while adorning the rest in pretty blush pink flowers. Bring out the metallic details by displaying your masterpiece on a gold or silver cake cake stand, and perhaps add a golden table runner for an extra dash of glitz and glamour.

We adore hand-painted wedding cakes – particularly if they’re graced with watercolour floral illustrations. Use fresh flowers to add a beautiful finishing touch to a delicate hand-painted wedding cake. Your cake designer will be able to decorate your cake so that the two textures compliment each other, rather than trying to cram everything onto one cake. The combination of materials, colours and styles will look stunning, trust us!

What could be more elegant than trailing blooms around a wedding cake? This waterfall effect is a traditional one that will never go out of fashion. It’s particularly perfect if you love the thought of a cake with three or more tiers, and it can easily be a focal point of your wedding reception.

If three-tiers sounds more daunting than delicious, consider an ultra-chic cake with just one tier. This design of cake has been making more and more of an appearance in the world of weddings, and this simple style is seriously effective. Use a handful of oversized colourful blooms as a cake topper, and you’ve got yourself a masterpiece that you and your guests will adore.

If you’ve been keeping an eye on the wedding trend radar, you’ll know that greenery is predicted to be big news for 2017. Consider incorporating greenery into your floral wedding cake. The perfect choice for a botanical, rustic or minimalist wedding theme, a greenery-inspired wedding cake is on-trend and utterly gorgeous.

Wedding cakes with flowers look divine paired with fruits – especially if you’re planning a Spring or Summer wedding! Mix in with fresh flowers for a natural, wild look that will leave you feeling incredibly peckish…

There are no limits when it comes to designing a floral wedding cake and you easily personalise it to make it yours. From velvet ribbons, calligraphy cake toppers or antique cake stands, a wedding cake with flowers lends itself to anything!
