The weather outside may be frightful, but your guests will feel warm and cozy during your reception particularly while enjoying a slice of your delicious wedding cake. To help you serve the right cake this winter we have 5 unique winter wedding cake flavors!! Get inspired before you dig in!
Bring back gingerbread
Who doesn’t have memories of decorating gingerbread houses during the holiday season? The nostalgic, sweet-meets-spicy flavor of gingerbread is perfect for a winter wedding cake. We suggest pairing gingerbread cake with either a cream cheese or ginger mousse for a delightful, comforting flavor.
Go crazy for cranberry
It’s safe to say that most holiday dinner spreads aren’t complete without a bowl of cranberry sauce. Incorporate this Thanksgiving classic into your wedding by ordering a cranberry-orange wedding cake. The cranberry orange works well with a custard filling, and possibly the addition of more cranberry purée, if desired.
Add preserved fruit
Adding a preserved fruit to winter wedding cakes of all flavors is a great way to sneak in some freshness to your winter wedding cake. In addition to cranberry compote add a layer of apricot jam or fig preserves for great winter flavor.
Pair it with peppermint
During the frosty days of winter, refreshing peppermint pops up in candy bars, coffee, cookies, and more. Since this bright mint pairs nicely with chocolate. Try a rich chocolate cake filled with peppermint mousse. You will love this if you love a Thin Mint Girl Scout cookie.
Don’t be afraid to spice it up
Spiced desserts—like pumpkin pie and carrot cake—are typically in high demand during the fall, but these autumnal flavors can carry over into the winter season, too. Consider pairing pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting, apple cake with caramel filling, or carrot cake with lemon buttercream for an unexpected dessert.
