Italian Wedding Cake
An Original Wedding Cake

The Italian wedding cake is far from plain.
A mix of nuts, whether is almond or pecans, pineapple and a cheese cream based frosting is surely to send your taste buds in craving mode.

I am assuming that you will hire a baker to take care of baking this specialty, so I am going to concentrate here in just showing great design ideas to inspire you.

However if you, or someone in your inner circle is taking the task of baking , here is the italian wedding cake recipe.

Some important elements that need to be present for your cake to fall in this category:

* White frosting, that represents purity.
Some brides decide to do only one white frosting tier (the top one) and decorate the other ones with a color design on a white background.

* Fresh fruits, preferably pineapple as the main flavor, but you can decorate with pieces of strawberries, peaches, or any other fruit of your preference for a modern twist.

* Use a wedding cake topper!.
Preferably a classic one with the bride and groom figurines. Simple and timeless.

But enough talking!

Let's check out some great creations from Let Them Eat Cakes.
