With twinkling lights and glistening snow, winter is magical. It’s a beautiful and underrated time of year to get married. Summer may be peak marriage season, but a these winter wedding cakes prove why the season is the perfect accent for your fairytale.
Ideally not a Hans Christian Anderson one. Those are dark dark, not romantic dark.
The warm neutrals and deep gem colors add stark pops of colors on dark landscapes and fresh, snowy-white icing. Our favorite winter wedding cakes range from crisp white cakes with sharply defined textures and designs, to cakes with shiny accents, to deeply colored cakes that draw your attention.
15 Stunning, Snowy Winter Wedding Cakes
1. Scraped Sparkle Cake
This beautiful, simple winter wedding cake goes for the “naked cake” aesthetic where you can see the base peak through the thin layer of white icing on top. It’s giving millennial, but when did that become such a bad thing? We’re not salty.
2. Modern Winter Cake
Still dividing things into his and hers? This cake features a floating sidebar that unevenly separates the top two layers from the bottom half. Obviously, the bottom half is hers.
The icing is beautifully designed to look like a modern snowmelt and is decorated with a sunny pop of yellow. We wouldn’t want to be in charge of cutting it, though.
3. Burgundy Wedding Cake
Taking a complete 180, this cake is a deep chocolate burgundy instead of winter white, and is designed to make a statement. Its bold color makes it fit for an ice queen who’s willing to expand her color palette.
Softened with gold glitter and accented with pretty florals, this cake says “I buck tradition, and acknowledge that having cake at a wedding is too good to pass up.”
4. Silver Archway Cake
Is this a cake or is it a castle? With multiple tiers, including a hollowed out layer featuring a silver speckled arch, this cake is so pretty that we can almost quit lamenting all the wasted cake from that hollowed out bit.
It even features a mini chandelier. This cake is so fancy, we’re not even going to ask if the silver adornments are edible. What’s a chipped tooth in the face of this winter wonderland?
5. Rose Gold Cake
Plus, there’s the added intrigue of the little slips of paper that will have your friends and family wondering whether they should eat them or arrange them to solve a wedding mystery.
6. Golden Winter Wedding Cake
This winter wedding cake arrangement gives all the New Years vibes.
From the edible sequins to the gold-centered white florals on top, to the shiny golden frosting, this set of cakes makes a clear statement. Which is something along the lines of, “money is no object, and there is an open bar.”
7. Pretty in Pink Cake
Who says a winter wedding cake has to be white or dark colors? Pink is in, and there’s a way to make it feel more winter vibes.
8. Rustic Winter Cake
Showing up to the wedding semi naked might get you escorted out of the ceremony, but eating semi naked cake is perfectly acceptable.
With rustic accents, like a log base that we do not recommend eating, this cake will have you yee-hawing through the snow. Whatever that means.
9. Mountain Snow Cake
It is all in the details with this winter mountain cake. The icing is textured to create a snow-covered mountain range with trees dotting the landscape, and accents of pieces of pine tree.
It is not the cake you conquer, but yourself. Okay, okay, we’d also be planning to conquer that cake, too.
10. Princess Wedding Cake
The bottom layer of this cake gives Tiffany and Co. vibes, but I think we all know it’s not diamonds that are a girl’s best friend–it’s cake.
The multicolored, muted layers of this beauty make it match perfectly with the landscape and the sparkly bling complement the bride’s bedazzled dress.
11. Winter Wonderland Cake
Are they flowers? Snowflakes? Butterflies? We have no idea what is adorning this whiter-than-white wedding cake, but it sure is nice to look at.
As you work your eyes down the cake, each layer gets more and more textured. And your stomach gets more and more impatient.
12. Berry Blue Winter Cake
This berry blue wedding cake mixes fifty shades of blue (or, uh, three shades) with bright red mistletoe to create a multi-layered winter masterpiece.
If Mother Nature isn’t on your side on your wedding day to bless you with a light dusting of snow, at least the cake can help set the scene.
13. Snowflake Wedding Cake
Your cake can totally be your something blue. Blue ripples and white snowflakes complete this three-layered snow fest.
The deep blue dye in this frosting might even dye your tongue. You took pictures before the cake, right?
14. Orange We Glad It’s Winter Cake
We love the gold mountain silhouette almost as much as I like the fluffy couple at the top.
15. Rustic Ivy Winter Cake
Achieving the impossible, this cake is both elegant and vintage.
Topped with roses and wrapped with deep forest green leaves, your wedding will invoke Greek goddesses and barn doors simultaneously. Just wait to see if anyone else eats the garnish before taking a bite.
