Touches of India – The Wedding Cake

Choosing the perfect wedding cake can be fun but quite the task. Not only do these works of art take center stage as they are displayed gloriously in their magnificence at the reception but they have to taste good too!

A lot of thought goes into the design of the wedding cake. The theme of the wedding, the flowers or the brides wedding attire are just some of the things taken into consideration when designing the wedding cake.

For this wedding reception as a surprise for the Bride, I had Nilanthi of Miracle Cakes design the wedding cake with elements from the Bride’s gorgeous bridal attire.

The bride chose this fabulous deep green lengha with gold and hot pink for her wedding reception.

We decided not to use the deep green color of the lengha for the primary color of the cake but instead opted to use gold which is a symbol of purity, prosperity and very good fortune in Indian culture.

We then incorporated the green & hot pink colors of the lengha into the wedding cake.

Nilanthi was also able to recreate the design of the gold appliques in the lengha on to the cake.

The end result was this beautiful and elegantly designed cake that was also simply delicious!

I was completely blown away to learn Nilanthi had just taken up cake decorating a few years ago and taught herself the art of cake design from instructional books she had purchased.     Her passion for cake design is quite evident and you can see why I’m so awe struck by her amazing creations on her website Miracle Cakes .
