There are several themes that can be created around a wedding cake, they are: glamorous, casual, bohemian, modern, classic, and of course romantic. A glamorous wedding cake should be dramatic and vibrant with beadings and draping. Beautiful colors like pearl, white, gold and silver should be used.

A casual wedding cake can be sandy beaches or a baseball field. There can be greenery, vineyards, mouldings and confection with pale colors like light blue, light green and beige.

The Bohemian styled wedding cake can be very earthy, multi-shaped, contoured with browns, beige, white, black etc colors.

The modern wedding cake theme can be geometric, full of metallic colors like gold, silver and white, also pink and orange thrown in for effect. The classic theme can be simple, elegant and classy. The romantic theme can consist of flowers, sculptures, gardens and castles. It should be enchanting and magical with roses and rose petals.

A wedding cake should represent your personality and the theme can be anything you want from holidays to weather seasons. You can have unique toppers or traditional cake toppers. You can add flowers and pearls, vines and skittles.

The ambience,  dress of the couple, the cake every thing should support the overall theme of the occasion.
