Our Favorite Winter Wedding Cakes
One of the best things about planning a winter wedding is that you can have a ton of fun decorating your cake. Add elements from nature, including pine cones, evergreen sprigs, twigs, sticks of cinnamon or a bit of herbal foliage for a rustic touch, or play up the snow theme with plenty of silver beads, snowflakes and sugared berries. Below are some of our favorite examples of basic white tiered cakes turned winter wonderland masterpieces:
