1. Rainbow Layer Cake

Some of us struggle to choose whether we’d like something more simplistic for our wedding day, or something a little more extravagant. If this sounds like a dilemma that you’ve been facing, then we’ve got the perfect solution for you. 

This cake essentially gives you the best of both worlds. It has a gorgeous, clean cut, silky smooth white fondant outer layer, but with a glorious surprise on the inside. 

That’s right! It’s a rainbow cake. Each layer has a different rainbow color, bringing in a total of 6 layers, which is more than enough to serve all of your hungry guests. 

Many people may feel intimidated about making a rainbow cake, as it does seem rather elaborate, but we promise that this recipe makes things super easy. It’s a Betty Crocker recipe too, so you just know it’s going to be foolproof. 

If you want some advice about making the perfect rainbow layer cake, then we’d say that the most important part is investing in high quality food colorings.

Some of the cheaper varieties simply don’t show up in the cake mixture, and can even give a strange color quality after baking. 

In addition, if you’re not really into the rainbow colors in the display picture, that’s fine! Just alternate the colors depending on your preferences. 

Your guests are going to adore this cake, and it also makes for the perfect wedding photos as you both cut into your glorious rainbow. 

2. Carrot Cake

If you’re like us, no other cake quite compares to carrot cake. It’s incredibly moist, delicious, and a real crowd pleaser for many. This is why it’s a great option for baking as a wedding cake. 

Chances are that you’ve made carrot cake several times in your life, even if you don’t consider yourself to be a star baker, so there’s really nothing to fear.

This carrot cake is one of the best we’ve ever tasted, and your guests will be begging you for the recipe. It’s brimming with cinnamon and nutmeg flavors, which we think would be perfect for a fall wedding. 

The best thing about this recipe is the cream cheese frosting, which is absolutely to die for. If you want to taste the best cream cheese frosting of your life, then you simply have to make this one. 

It teaches you how to artfully spread it around your cake until it’s perfectly smooth, and looks professionally made.

To top it off, why not place some edible flowers on the surface of your cake? Incredibly simple, natural, and elegant. This cake is a real show stopper. 

3. Buttercream Flower Cake

We truly think that this is one of the very best cakes on our list, simply because it’s so adaptable. If you’re new to making buttercream flowers, don’t worry, because this recipe’s got you covered. 

It’s perfect for those still at beginner level, and actually teaches you how to pipe in an artful way. The result is an elegant, flawless cake that’s also delicious. 

In order to adapt this cake for your special occasion, the recipe encourages you to change the colors of the flowers that adorn the cake. This is why we think this would be perfect for your wedding day. 

For example you could choose a deep purple and pink if you’re celebrating a lesbian wedding, and makes for a great way of demonstrating the love that you share with one another. The same applies for each of the different colors on the flag. 

Perhaps you’d like to display a full rainbow of different colors? If so, then you can absolutely do this. Have fun with it and create something special that’s meaningful to you and your partner. 

It also shows you how to make your cake perfectly smooth all the way around using a spatula.

4. Gluten-Free Trans Pride Layer Cake

If you and your significant other are celebrating a trans wedding, then we suggest that you take a look at this amazing trans pride layer cake, which is absolutely beautiful to look at. 

We absolutely adore the alternating blue, pink and white layers, which look incredibly elegant and seamless when placed on top of one another. 

We also love the icing that adorns this cake, and it’s not only gorgeous to look at, but delicious to taste too. If you need some tips and tricks on how to pipe the perfect icing row, this recipe has got you covered. 

You will be alternating between blue, pink, and white for your icing too, and you’ll be using it to scale up the length of the cake until you arrive at the very top.

The top layer is a perfect amalgamation of all three colors, and blends in beautifully with the rest of the cake. 

The best thing about this cake is the decorative flowers that adorn the edge. This makes it super easy to cover up any mistakes you make with the icing too.

Simply purchase some fake flowers, and tuck them into the buttercream to create the most seamless wedding cake imaginable. 

If you don’t feel like purchasing cloth flowers, then you can buy pre-made ones made of icing sugar, so you can eat them too!

If you like the design of the cake, but the colors aren’t representative of your wedding, simply chance it up and experiment with different colors.
