Vintage Lace Cakes: With the vintage trend, there are so many ways to dress up your cake. It’s all in the details! If choosing a vintage wedding gown, why not match your cake to your dress details? And don’t forget to dress your table in vintage décor with an old tablecloth, vintage backdrop or candles and old books to accent the table. And check out these vintage cake stands from Roxy Heart Vintage.

Traditional Lace Cakes: Lucky for you traditional brides, lace fits in perfectly with traditionally decorated weddings. Add white lace to a white cake or pair the lace with neutral colors – both options add a soft, feminine touch. Tip: Since even traditional lace patterns vary, bring your own lace to the cake shop to make sure you both have the same inspiration. You can even use lace ribbon or fabric on your cake which can save you money!

Modern Lace Cakes: Keep it modern and add pops of trendy color with lace – like this coral cake with grey sugar lace and a whimsy sugar flower. Black is popular wedding color and black lace brings a modern and elegant feel. Add a two-dimensional element with lace that flows off the cake. The ombre wedding trend on a cake plus lace would also make one perfectly modern confection!

Mix and Match Lace Cakes: Mix and match patterns to create a unique cake that fits your style. Pair soft elements with lace such as roses, ruffles and buttons – or be bold and pair modern patterns – such as polka dots, stripes or damask - with lace. But beware: too many patterns on a cake can look tacky. For more wedding cake ideas, check out unique cakes inspired by art!
