Novelty Winter Wedding Cakes

winter wedding cake with christmas tree from The Highland Bakery

A winter wedding can be the perfect excuse for a couple to indulge their fun side with a novelty winter cake design to amuse their guests.  The awe-inspiring winter pine tree cake above by The Highland Bakery  would make a simply jaw-dropping centrepiece for a winter wedding reception.

The separation of the bottom two tiers in the above cake is a wonderful design feature showcasing the hanging icicles to wonderful effect. To design your own version of this cake, you’ll find a tutorial here on how to make fondant icicles.

Below, we have two super fun novelty cakes incorporating winter sports for the fun-loving wedding couple. The cake below right features a snowboarding bride and groom crashing and burning in a fit of giggles at the bottom of their wedding cake “slope”. A beautiful ski chalet sitting on top of the cake lit from inside with a tea light, creates a magical seasonal atmosphere. (Image via Cake Wrecks).

Above right we have another fun winter cake design by Well Dressed Cakes By Brett.  While it’s not strictly speaking a wedding cake (no sign of a bride with Dad and the kids!), it would make a perfect novelty winter wedding cake for a couple with children or a couple who just like a bit of child-like fun in the snow themselves! The children toboganning down the hill and Dad making a snow angel at the bottom makes a wonderful fun winter scene.

To make your own version, you’ll find a tutorial here to help you carve a “winding hill cake”: how to carve a spiral cake.

For a super simple novelty winter wedding cake, there is no easier cake to make than a 3D snowman cake.  Both adults and children alike will delight at this style cake at a winter wedding reception.  A simple three-tiered wedding cake lends itself perfectly to this cake design, for maximum impact with no carving or sugarcraft acrobatics required!
