This Simple White Wedding Cake is a classic, elegant beauty and perfect for anyone seeking simplicity in their wedding cake. White cake with white fondant and a satin ribbon border. I photographed the cake on a few different stands so you can see how a stand changes the look of a cake instantly!
I’ll share a few more details about this cake (although there’s not a lot to tell) but I also really want to share some of my cake stands with you. To see the details now – skip all the way to the bottom!
Since this cake didn’t have any blaring distiguishing features, I was able to feature it on a few different cake stands. It’s amazing how changing the stand changed the look & feel of the cake so easily.
The cake stands.
First up, and my favorite, by the way, was this Rose Gold Stand. This stand was a gift from my husband and you guys… he knows my heart.
I instantly fell madly in love with this gorgeous cake stand and was so exited for a chance to photograph it with this cake. Isn’t it stunning?
This stand make the cake look so stunning and elegant. The stand really shines and just takes it all to the next level.
Next up, I photographed the cake on this galvanized metal cake stand. This stand was a gift from my sister that she purchased in Waco, TX at Magnolia. I also completely adore this stand!!
I love the height and the tiny gold beading on the edge and the rustic feel of it. If this cake had been for a more rustic or organicly themed wedding, this stand would’ve been perfect!
For this cake, the riser stand really gave the cake some extra height that just made it feel even more special.
The last stand I tried at home was this round silver platform cake stand that is very popular and traditional for weddings. My brother Jake owns this stand as part of a set of stands and rents it out, but I often take care of the details since I make and deliver the cakes.
Having said that, the bride didn’t rent a stand from me for this wedding so when I got to the wedding (at an antebellum home), I found this stand waiting for me:
The Simple White Wedding Cake.
The height of this platform cake stand was a little more fitting for this smaller wedding cake and it was really, really pretty. The room was dimly lit so my picture is not great (I had to brighten it quite a bit which made it grainy and it was already blurry – sorry!), but you get the idea.
And that’s it for the stands. I am not exaggerating when I say I own more than 50 cake stands and I really wish I’d had time to photograph the cake on more of them! In particular, I think the cake would’ve been stunning on this antique silver beaded cake stand and this Mint Green Milk Glass stand… but time ran out!
Since my main priority was to feature my newest stands (the rose gold one and the one from Magnolia), I consider it mission accomplished!
Last thing I want to add today is a picture of the groom’s cake.
The groom’s cake.
It too was a simple, yet elegant cake. It was an 8″ square cake with a block “J” cut out of modeling chocolate. At the wedding, it sat on a table opposite the wedding cake:
Both cakes were in one very gorgeous room! Yyou can see the top of the wedding cake in the bottom of the groom’s cake pic. Lovely, right?
Okay – now a few details about the cakes.
The Simple White Wedding Cake.
- The tiers were 4″, 6″ and 8″ round baked in my favorite Magic Line Cake Pans.
- Butter Pecan was the cake flavor and it was filled and frosted with Cream Cheese Frosting.
- I used homemade marshmallow fondant to cover the cake for a perfectly smooth finish.
- White satin ribbon was wrapped around each tier for the borders.
- The cake was on a 10″ cake drum covered in homemade marshmallow fondant and also wrapped with the white satin ribbon.
The Groom’s Cake.
- This cake was baked in Magic Line 8″ square cake pan.
- The groom wanted Red Velvet for his cake, filled and frosted with chocolate buttercream.
- The “J” was made with modeling chocolate. I printed a block letter and used a scalpel to cut it out.
- This cake was on a 12″ square cake drum.
I think I’ve covered all the details. Did I miss anything? If you have a question, leave me a comment!
