Wedding Cake Centerpieces

Venues

About 5 years ago I did my first wedding that wanted cake centerpieces for each table rather than the traditional stacked cake.  The couple really gave me complete freedom with the designs.  I sat down with them and they said “here’s our colors, here’s generally what we like; Surprise us.”  I ended up having a blast doing the cakes, they were thrilled and I ended up with 2 other wedding cake centerpiece bookings from two couples who attended that wedding.

It’s really a fun idea.  You can have different flavors and different designs on each table.  The cakes become a conversation piece at the wedding.  Then when it’s time to cut the cakes, it encourages people to interact with other tables as people search out different cake flavors.

I’ve done probably 15 or so of these weddings over the last few years.  Some brides give me complete freedom.  Others want to approve each design and color scheme.  Either way is fine with me.  Honestly, you end up spending more on cake than you would otherwise, but you save a lot on flowers since you have cake centerpieces rather than floral centerpieces.  We also leave a cake box for each cake as there’s almost always leftover cake with this arrangement.  Rather than take a floral centerpiece home, your guests (at least a few of them) get to take cake home.

Last weekend we did wedding cake centerpieces for Deborah and Matt. They had an outdoor wedding at the San Diego Botanical Gardens in Encinitas (formerly Quail Botanical Gardens).  The gardens are beautiful and Deborah wanted to tie in the nature theme to her centerpieces, so they all included some sort of plant life.  Below you’ll find pictures of four of their cakes. 

So if you’re thinking outside the box for your wedding, think of having Cake Centerpieces for your tables rather than florals.
