20 Deliciously Deco Wedding Cakes
Art Deco has been the biggest wedding trend of recent years (thanks largely to Leo and The Great Gatsby), and long may it continue I say! So, after looking at bridal hair accessories and wedding invitations in our Art Deco themed series of Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons, today we’re looking at wedding cakes. Whether you are going all out flapper fabulous, or just infusing your wedding with elements of that most glamorous and decadent of eras, don’t over look your wedding cake!
Because traditionally the cutting of your cake is the last ceremonial part of the day, the grand finale – and indeed the final opportunity for those all important portraits (well, before your hair gets messy from dancing anyway) If invitations are your guests first glimpse, your wedding cake leaves a lasting impression, so why not go out with a bang with a wedding cake your guests will never forget. The roaring 20s or Jazz Age is renowned for its rich colors, bold geometric shapes, and lavish ornamentation, so for an Art Deco inspired wedding cake think metallics and jewel colours, feathers, fans and frames; sunbursts, sweeping curves and chevrons; zigzags, ziggurats (yep, that is a word, I haven’t just made it up) and Egyptian motifs – all were popular in architecture, fashion and art during the era and are sure to give your wedding cake some wow! Here are 20 delicious Art Deco wedding cakes just oozing with Gatsby-esque glamour….

Or if your wedding style is a little more refined, how about choosing a wedding cake that is a little more classically beautiful? Going with an off white icing gives it a wonderful aged look…..
Or choose something quite simple for your cake in terms of decor, and let the cake stand do all the talking…..
And of course, just because you want to add some Art Deco style to your day, doesn’t mean you have to go all out Gatsby glamour. Just take a look at this yummy looking DIY naked wedding cake from this art deco infused celebration from right here on Chic Vintage Brides…..

Which just goes to show, on your day you can have whatever YOU want!
Oh some of these are so pretty I think I might have difficulty cutting them….. but don’t worry if the razzle dazzle of the jazz age just ain’t your thing, because after Art Deco, we’ll be looking at Edwardian, 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s.
Have a fabulous weekend!
