More classic weddings can feature these on their sweet tables, but in a sophisticated way! The confectioner prepares the cake with the desired height and shape, covers it with sugar paste or frosting and finishes the cake with candy toppings in delicate colors or even metallic shades like silver or gold! The elements used for decoration end up being highlighted even more on this type of cake!

Mega Original

What if the drips were done upside down? Yes, this is very much a possibility because it has a texture that stays firm after being applied! Confectioners have taken advantage of this trend by using it over other techniques. The decorations surprise people for their creativity, and appear like sculptures of chocolate, macarons, flowers and even popcorn – amazing!

Double Coverage

Not only double, but triple, quadruple … White cakes can take toppings in the same colors that will be used in your decoration, creating a beautiful harmony in the middle of the venue! There is still the option of metallic coverings, which create an elegant and sophisticated look!
