We spoke to New York based Patisserie Chef Kanupriya Kesari to get you the inside scoop (pun intended) on all of them! 😉

Personalised Wedding Cakes 101 – Ideas for Awesome Indian Wedding Cakes 🎂

Traditional Trending Toppers

The cake topper is a great place to show some customization and creativity. There’s many new topper ideas for Indian Wedding Cakes you can tap into. Be it your monogram from the card, funny figurines & adorable miniatures of you both or off the top of our head 😂, even your own wedding hashtag!

Toppers by Fairytales Handmade

Chef Kanupriya’s Technical Tip – Toppers can range from fondant to chocolate to sugar art. Almost anything amazing can be crafted to crown the cake.

Fondant Fairytales and Tasty Themes

Chef Kanupriya’s Technical Tip – If you’ve seen Masterchef you know we can work wonders with a theme. Fab Fondant & Pretty piping is a great way to show glimpses from your couple story just like drawings in a storybook!

Draw from the Décor 🎊✨

Choose a cake that’s compatible with your wedding décor. This way your cake will be a highlight – a stunner and not a sidekick cake. Share your décor details like theme, colours, flowers with your chef and watch them replicate it on your cake like it’s a cakewalk!😝

Chef Kanupriya’s Technical Tip – It’s easy to Incorporate elements from the décor in fondant /sugar work/gumpaste – all of which are beautifully done by skilled bakers in India. In fact, you can even have your entire cake hand painted, almost like an edible painting of your wedding!

Dress to Impress

What could fuel more personalized passion than your wedding fashion! Wedding cakes with matching detailing from the bride’s dress is a popular concept in the west, and we think it’s the best!

Chef Kanupriya’s Technical Tip – “The details I feel, at an Indian wedding such as embroidery and jewellery are so grand, that at times it looks impossible to replicate. It isn’t!” In fact, Kanupriya replicated her own mehndi outfit on this stunning cake below! ⬇︎💗

“I painted my chintz pattern from the dress on fondant and replicated my tiara flowers in gumpaste. The same can be done for a traditional lehenga too! If the bride knows what flowers she is going to wear in her hair/jaimala, gum paste flowers are the way to go. Another great idea to personalise Indian Wedding Cakes is making custom silicone molds for the embroidery on her outfit or even her jewellery, to mould out fondant details that are an exact copy!”

Candid Clicks Cakes

Let your cake tell your story in Instagram worthy photos, literally!

Chef Kanupriya’s Technical Tip This is really simple! In fact, basic photocakes were a rage for birthday parties when we were kids and it still looks great when applied creatively to weddings!

Psst – Share a good photo of your lehenga pattern with your cake artist and they can make a photo cake matching your outfit that’s pretty, cost-effective and personal too!😈

The catch in creating gorgeous wedding cakes for Indian Weddings?

Time! ⏰ Except for photo cakes, other techniques take time. So the cake isn’t something you can decide at the drop of a hat! Yes, you should take the cake call after you freeze your décor and outfit. This way you can decide what look you want. BUT, make sure you give your baker a month straight to really work magic on your story!

There, you can now have your Dream cake and eat it too! Pretty AND yummy!😍
