Browsing wedding cake designs can be pretty overwhelming and chaotic, but we’ve narrowed down options to a currently rising trend: hand-painted cakes! However, the irony here is that by introducing this trend, we’ve also expanded your horizon of design choices. Your cake is now a blank canvas, and every other decision made in terms of color or additional adornments are now influenced by your “painting”. Check out these stunningly delectable selections you’d be able to call your own on one of the most important days of your life!

The words on this cake are just barely readable, but yours do not have to be! Remember, it’s the message that counts, and if you can write a beautiful poem to express your love for one another, what better way to draw people’s attention than to put it on your wedding day cake?

As hand-painted work, there just had to be something inspired by famous art work or art movements in the past! Here’s a cake painted over in the uneven, lineated style of the Art Nouveau.

This “painter’s palette” look is the key in giving the cake its carefree, retro edge.
