Quirky Cake Ideas

From the unusual to the downright bizarre, we scour Pinterest for the best quirky wedding cakes that will make you reconsider what you want on your big day.

When we think of wedding cakes, the image of a three-tiered delight comes to mind - adorned with pretty icing and perhaps some sugar flowers. With so many wonderful designs around, we thought it was time to scour Pinterest for some of the most unusual and stylish wedding cakes.

1. Rustic Chic

Simple designs are often the most stylish. For a boho country wedding, we love this delicate cake made from madeleines. Why not have one as a centrepiece in the middle of each table, or designs made from different miniature cakes displayed on a cake table?

2. The Quirky Cupcake

We’ve all seen pretty towers of cupcakes. Why not deconstruct yours and present them in pretty jars for your guests – either to take home or to savour for pudding.


3. A Work of Art

Cake flowers are generally either fresh or made from sugar. For something a little different, choose a beautifully painted cake in your chosen colour scheme.

4. Cool Shapes

Who says geometric shapes and bold colours can’t be pretty? This bold design is perfectly complemented by delicate sugar flowers in softer hues.

5. Pop-Tastic

This elegant design proves that you can have quirky cake pops while also sticking to a traditional three-tiered display. Elegant colours complete the look.

6. Save The Date!

Many couples adorn their wedding cake with romantic words and initials. Why not add the date of your wedding instead? This cool black and white cake would work perfectly in a chic city venue, or with a more vintage black and white style.

7. Chocolate Heaven

We couldn’t look at funky cakes without including something delicious and chocolatey from the creative team at Choccywoccydoodah. The question is, could you ever bear to cut it?

8. Ethereal beauty

This delicate creation is the perfect fairytale cake. Adorn with fresh flowers to suit your colour scheme. Dreamy.

9. Divine in Black

Who says black can’t be romantic? We adore this super stylish cake with its bold pops of colour – just the thing for an evening celebration and a real party couple.

10. From Black…to White

Pure white can be absolutely breath taking, especially when you opt for an immaculately clean yet quirky style. This cake is perfection, and just what you need at a contemporary hotel wedding.

11. Vintage Chalkboard

We’re back to black but this time showing how it can work so well in a rustic theme. This cake looks like a blackboard, with pretty white ‘chalk’ detailing. Display on a vintage silver stand with wonderful flowers.

12. And Finally!...

Looking for a fabulous way to display your cupcakes? Look no further. All you need is a beautiful cake lady to weave her way around your guests!
