The drip wedding cake is totally on trend and utterly gorgeous. As you know, at Girl Gets Wed we love anything with a slightly quirky edge, something that makes us smile and of course anything colourful, well, lovely readers we think we can safely say that drip wedding cakes tick all these boxes and more.
Our favourite drip wedding cakes not only feature a distinctive deep drip design, but they are also loaded with fun vibrant additions, for examples macarons, individual chocolates and as you will see later, fondant sushi rolls and make believe bowls of soy source – yes honestly.
This exuberant fun approach to cakes is very much in evidence at Anges de Sucre whose range of drip wedding cakes is totally awesome. So much so, that we’ve dedicated this whole post to them. One word of warning though, if you’re reading this on an empty tummy, we can’t be held responsible if you head straight for the biscuit tin!
Onwards then and let’s delve in to the delicious delights of just a small selection of Anges de Sucre drip cakes, enjoy …
Pink Flamingo Wedding Cake
If delicate pinks feature in your wedding décor, then what about this fabulous flamingo inspired cake? This light as a feather design really does feature feathers albeit of a hand-crafted Belgian white chocolate variety.
Frosted with a stunning watercolour effect in shades of pink vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream on vanilla sponge layers, then decorated with pink and ivory macarons, topped with a glossy white chocolate glaze and white and pink popcorn and crisp pearls. We think this cake should really be renamed pink perfection.
Rustic Chic Macarons & Pearls Cake
A perfect addition to a barn or festival themed wedding would be this rustic chic cake, tumbling with gold and silver pearls. Featuring a nod to all things shabby chic with delicious macarons echoing the colours of vintage china and those decadent pearl details.
The laid back vibe continues with the lightest sweep of semi-naked Swiss meringue buttercream frosting over tall tiers of layered sponge.
You can even personalise each tier with a choice of Vanilla Bean, Red Velvet or Belgian Chocolate sponge.
Sushi Wedding Cake
Love Japanese cuisine? Then why not share the love than with this crazy fun sushi wedding cake.
Made with 3-layers of chocolate sponge cake on each tier, then frosted with blue vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream, topped with a delicious white Belgian chocolate ganache drip and decorated with wafer fans.
As if this isn’t enough, the fun has only just started as fondant sushi rolls, nigiri, bowls of chocolate “soy sauce” and fondant matcha-green-tea-flavoured “wasabi” dollops and chocolate covered biscuit chop sticks all feature in this Japanese dream of a cake.
Floral Stripes Wedding Cake
The bold black and white stripes and pretty buttercream piped flowers on light vanilla sponge make this cake an ideal choice for an urban chic wedding.
Embellished with macarons and pearls, this fabulous floral wedding cake design has a wonderfully edgy drama to it.
Once again it’s over to you to choose your flavour for each tier. Mmmm, choices, choices – but all good.
Alice in Wonderland Wedding Cake
Wonderfully wacky, this incredible Alice in Wonderland Wedding Cake is an absolute work of cake art. It should taste every bit as good as it looks too as every detail is carefully hand-made and decorated with Belgian chocolate.
Taking the Alice in Wonderland signature as the base decoration, it just gets more Mad Hatter by the minute. Swiss meringue buttercream and cute white chocolate toadstools accompany the Mad Hatter’s chocolate teapot with macarons and salted caramel tea spilling out of chocolate cups, along with the Queen of Heart’s white chocolate playing cards and red and white buttercream roses. Phew!
As if all of this isn’t enough Belgian chocolate ganache drip glaze tumble all the way down triple decker layers of red velvet sponge.
Watercolour Macaron Cascade Wedding Cake
This showstopper of a cake is a wonderfully modern take on romantic watercolours. The tonal Swiss meringue buttercream has a dreamy “watercolour” effect with a tumbling macarons and pretty piped buttercream flowers & the lustre of pearls adding pops of colour, texture and of course, taste!
If modern romance is the theme for your wedding then this is surely the perfect cake for you. Just choose the flavours for your tiers and you have your perfect cake.
Lovebirds Wedding Cake
My goodness this is a super playful, action packed cake that’s sure to delight lovebirds with a sweet tooth and a sense of fun.
Where to start when describing this one. Well, silky smooth buttercream and a glossy Belgian chocolate drip glaze form the basis of the decoration.
Then things start to get wonderfully wild with macarons, baked buttermilk doughnuts, buttercream flowers, chocolate pearls, Ferrero Rocher mini cones, eclairs and profiteroles and candied popcorn all showboating around three brilliant tiers of confectionery chaos – in the best possible way.
Top all of this with a super cute pair of chocolate flavoured lovebirds and prepare to fly away to wedding cake paradise.
