7 Creative Ways To Display Your Wedding Cake


Clever ways to display your cake.

Your wedding cake is one of the focal points of your Big Day. If this is your second wedding and you want to glorify your cake because it’s, well, glorious, consider the following fabulous ideas! Whatever you decide to do…have fun!


Canopy

Give your cake its own little room! A dramatic canopy is a stunning way to display your cake. Opt for silk curtains or other luxurious fabric that matches the color scheme of your wedding. Go a step further if desired with embellishments such as faux jewels or feathers.


Wreath

Encircle your wedding cake with a gorgeous floral wreath. Use white flowers or other blooms that match your cake, or go for a different hue so the cake stands out all the more.


Wine Barrel

Show off your cake in a more rustic way with a wine barrel. This is ideal if your wedding is at a winery! Surround the cake with beautiful blooms to offset the plainness of the barrel.


Balloons

Create a balloon display around your cake! Use bunches of balloons in various colors, or letter balloons that spell out your names or the word “Love.”


Artwork

Use the artwork or beautifully-painted walls at your wedding reception venue to your advantage. Make it the backdrop of your wedding cake, and keep the table the cake rests on simple. The cake should stand out against the wall to create a photo-worthy display.


Fabric

Work with beautiful fabrics to create a “skirt” for your wedding cake. Think tulle, satin, and anything else that invokes beauty and romance.


Lights

Experiment with different lights to create an illuminated display. Use string lights all around the cake, or hang lanterns. Both provide a touch of the mystical, magical quality so many want on their wedding day.

These are just some ideas for displaying your wedding cake! Have fun creating something you will cherish in photos for the rest of your life.
