Sensational Red Rose Wedding Cakes and Ideas

To top off your red wedding theme, red rose wedding cakes designed to perfectly match your red rose bridal bouquet will look simply divine - in fact almost too good to eat!

A wedding cake is often displayed on its own table for guests to admire, and is usually adorned and decorated with flowers that match those in the bridal bouquet. So make sure your cake is worthy of such attention.

After you have carefully chosen the red roses and foliage for your wedding bouquet, ask your florist for some fresh flower samples for when you meet with your wedding cake designer. If you have them to hand when you discuss your wedding cake designs ideas, your cake designer will be able to suggest ways in which your cake can show off your flowers, and also suggest other wedding cakes ideas.

Cakes come in all shapes, sizes and flavors, so you don't have to opt for the traditional three-tier, heavy fruit cake, try something different - chocolate or vanilla flavored sponges are becoming increasingly popular.


Individual cupcakes are very much in vogue; where each guest is presented with their own cupcake. One of the advantages of single cupcakes is that a whole variety of flavors can be used at once, for example chocolate, vanilla, lemon or coffee. For something that looks a little bit extra special, your wedding cake designer can make a "giant" cupcake, decorated with red buttercream roses, and then surround it with smaller individually decorated cupcakes.

Fondant wedding cakes

Fondant red rose wedding cakes have been popular in the UK and Europe for decades, and they are becoming much more popular now in the USA. A skilled sugar-craft designer will be able to form perfect edible roses and other cake decorating flowers from delicate sugar paste, as well as match the color of your roses and foliage exactly, by using edible food paints and dyes. Ask to see some examples of your cake designers sugar-craft flowers so you can assess their quality. If kept in an airtight container sugar paste flowers will keeps for years and years, as a permanent keepsake from your wedding day.

Fresh cream and chocolate cakes

For something really extravagant, a fresh cream and chocolate wedding cake, decorated with red buttercream roses will look a million dollars. And, will be very popular with your guests! Just make sure that your reception venue has refrigeration space, as this style of cake will start to melt if left out for too long!

Make a statement with a croquembouche

For a real statement piece, go for a patisserie croquembouche - a tower of choux buns filled with crème patisserie, and held together with sticky caramel. Decorate with real, or sugar paste, red roses and voila! You have something very, very special that will amaze your guests.

Whatever your choice of design or flavor, a red rose wedding cake will be the perfect centerpiece at your wedding meal. A lovely touch is to place your bouquet next to your wedding cake so that guests can admire both your cake and bouquet at the same time.
