The Resurgence Of Traditional Wedding Cakes

Updated: Dec 10, 2023

When choosing a wedding cake for your big day there are so many options; flavor, color, frosting, layers, toppers, the list goes on and on. There has been a recent resurgence in vintage inspired wedding cakes. Here are the elements that make this style perfect for the modern bride searching for a sense of tradition on their big day.

This style of wedding cake consists of a thick buttercream frosting dressing the cake in an abundance of swirls, lace, basketweave, and frills. The more details the better! This technique provides a quirky yet minimalistic final product unique to any modern bride.


A popular style within the vintage wedding cake aesthetic is the addition of cherries. This is a fun way to add a pop of color and feminine touch to your cake while maintaining the traditional essence of the style.


Another popular take on this current trend is the use of heart shape bases. This fun and chic shape subtly adds an extra sense of romance to the day. While popularly done in a single layer, this can also be stackable for a glamorous dessert.


If the dramatic piping, maraschino cherries and heart shapes are not romantic and chic enough for you, this feminine cake style can perfectly pair with pastels such as pink or blue for a subtle and unique use of your “something blue”.
