Wedding Cakes with Pearls

What normal bride don’t love pearls? Classic, feminine, and luminous, a pearl necklace and earrings on the bride simply radiates good taste. This very concept can be used to design the wedding cake. For an elegant white wedding cake, a beautiful decorative element are edible pearls. Read below to learn about many ways to use pearls to decorate that perfect wedding cake.

Using Pearls to Decorate Your Wedding Cake

If you like your pearl necklace to have a modern twist, you will love the style of a pearl encrusted wedding cake with a random pattern. A three tier cake is covered in smooth fondant, and somewhat large white “pearls” are scattered from the top down. Have the pearls be denser on the top tier, and get more scattered as they fall down towards the bottom layer of the cake. An opalescent powder on the pearls will give them a beautiful radiance, just like real pearls. A pretty variation on this is to mix white sugar pearls with silver ones; especially nice for a winter wedding.

Placing edible pearls along the base of each tier of the wedding cake to create rows is a very feminine way to decorate a wedding cake. It will appear as though the baker of the wedding cake has layed across each layer of the cake a pearl necklace. You can frost the wedding cake in a different color than the pearls to make them stand out. Colors that work very well include mint green, bably blue, lilac, and pink. You can top the wedding cake with a large frosted bow with streamers falling down the tiers. It is a fairly simple design, yet one with a lot of style. This type of wedding cake would be ideal for a spring or summer wedding during the afternoon time.

Wedding cakes inspired by the bride’s gown and pearl necklace are always special. Incredibly beautiful and subtle all at once, a lace patterned cake designed in ivory on white is wonderful. Make it even more special by using edible pearls like beading on the frosting lace design, just like a real bridal gown might have. Another idea is to use the pearls to create a row of “pearl buttons” down the front of the cake. It is lovely couture detail, one that you might find on a designer bridal gown. For the cake topper, consider a standing custom monogram made from faux pearls.

Edible Pearls for Wedding Cake Decorations

You can also use edible pearls to design a geometric pattern on a wedding cake. A classic Swiss dot design would be marvelous when made with tiny faux pearls instead of flat dots. It is a special detail which will add dimension and interest to the cake. You can top the wedding cake with sugar blossoms to mimic lilacs or peonies because swiss dot is lovely for spring. You can add a ribbon to each tier of the wedding cake in the same color as the flowers on top to add more color to the wedding cake. What a stunning cake this would be for a bride wearing a dotted organza bridal gown with pearl earrings! Edible pearls can serve the purpose of adding punctuation for a particular patterned wedding cake. At the junction of each quilted diamond, you can create a Chanel-inspired guilted cake in ballet pink fondant with tiny white pearls. Top it off with pale pink and black anemone blossoms, or a single oversized black camellia blossom made from gum paste (the camellia was Coco Chanel’s signature flower, of course).

You can never go wrong when you choose edible pearls as a beautiful decorative element on your wedding cake. They are elegant, classic, pretty, and very bridal. Style and grace will easily be added to a wedding cake by covering it with pearls.
