Whether you’re having a chic city wedding, a rustic celebration or a whimsical affair there are hundreds of ideas on how to create a winter wedding cake that is unique to you.  Whether you want a naked cake covered in winter berries, a cake that brings together the elements of nature, a gorgeously glam winter wonderland inspired cake with sparkles and glitter or a simple but effective cake with rich tones and florals, be inspired by our gorgeous festive confections that will be sure to brighten your wintery celebration and inject a little warmth and romance.


A Festive Treat

We love this cake & image from @calliehobbsphotography. Add some pine cones, evergreen sprigs, twigs, cinnamon or a bit of herbal foliage for a rustic and festive touch to your wedding cake. This look works best on a crisp white and tiered cake.

Dark Romance

If there’s any time you can get away with a black wedding cake- it’s winter! This four tier cake by Nadia & Co is the perfect combination of dark tones and rich berry florals to create a piece of art that would certainly draw attention on the big day.

Seasonal Berries

For those that love all things rustic and chic, why not opt for a naked wedding cake topped with seasonal winter berries and dusted with some white icing sugar for a snowy and wintry effect.

Blue is a great colour palette for winter weddings, and paired with floral gold detailing like this cake below makes for a romantic and whimsical cake that would be perfect for a fairy-tale wedding.
