{Cake Inspiration} Crepe Wedding Cake with Lavender

If you’re after a unique wedding cake with full of French finesse, then you can’t go past this superb french crepe wedding cake with lavender decoration. This sophisticated creation is the signature cake for Petite Eve Chocolates and consists of 20 delicate layers of handmade French crepes layered between a yummy filling of whipped pastry cream. You can choose between three delicious fillings of either whipped chocolate ganache, lemon curd or vanilla bean pastry cream – all which sound incredibly delicious to me. Not only is this a totally unique wedding cake, but one which would add a dose of European sophistication and style to a pretty lavender inspired event. Totally yum, totally pretty and totally French…. Voila!

{Cake Inspiration} Love Letter Cakes

Here is a gorgeous idea for your wedding style . .  . a love letter cake. The trend to decorate a cake in loving words or messages is not a new one, but recently I’ve noticed a few stunning twists on this idea have emerged. The unique cakes I have spotted recently use beautiful calligraphy fonts with words of love from a poem or song giving the cake a sophisticated vintage appeal. There is also a trend to decorate cakes with vintage paper or sheet music as well. You could also make it more personal and use your own wedding vows. Take a peek at the love letter cakes below. The overall look is elegant, unique and full of old world romance don’t you think?

This stunning three tier’ love letter’ cake designed by Bobbette & Belle Artisanal Pastries is decorated with words from French love poems and includes the couples’ names.

Calligraphy Wedding CakeThe Caketress created this amazing calligraphy cake to match couple’s wedding venue – a 19th century styled library room. In order to complement the wedding’s decor and ‘novel theme’ they created a design to look like written vintage pages with gumpaste ranunculas-like flowers also looking like they were made out of book pages. Just exquisite!

Love Letter Wedding CakeThis wedding cake aptly named “The Love Letter’ by Tillemont Patisserie has a more subtle approach featuring calligraphy writing in soft pastel blue and gold beaded trim.

Love Quote CakeYou can also incorporate love letters into your cake design without having to go for a traditional or vintage style. This ‘Love Quote Cake’ by Sweet & Saucy displays words of love in a graffiti style with groovy fonts and black silhouette.

Another unique way to incorporate letters is to go with a paper-themed cake. This modern ‘Papery Cuteness’ design Hello Naomi uses vintage scripts as the decorative border and to also cover the cute cake topper. Finally, I’m not sure if there’s a cake inside this design (which was featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs), but by using vintage music sheets of a love song you achieve the overall effect.
