Winter weddings tend to be a little more formal and the colors seem to be a little less bold. However, they are also known for their sparkle! That pop of silver not only compliments the formal elements of the wedding, but they add a pop of shine and color too!
One way to create that extra pop of sparkle is to insert a small (or large) rhinestone border at the base of each tier. The size in which you create your border can completely change the look of the cake too. A small border, like the photo above, will create a subtle pop of sparkle; whereas a thicker rhinestone border will create a more dramatic look.
Silver Dragees can also create a little sparkle on the cake. The great thing about dragees is that a bride can place them wherever she would like on the cake. Some brides like a cluster at the bottom like the photo below. Others prefer a waterfall look, where there are more dragees at the top and then less as you go down the cake. Another option is just to incorporate them into the design. This is a very subtle look, that just adds a touch of sparkle.
The third idea is a soft look that really catches the eye. The cake above, at first glance, appears to be a simple smooth cake with a minimal rhinestone bead in the middle. Just to give it a pop of sparkle. But, look again! The entire cake is covered in edible glitter. The subtlety of the glitter in addition to the rhinestone placed in the center of the cake create a dramatic effect when the lighting is upon the cake! The perfect pop that will wow your guests!
