Affordable Wedding Dress Themed Cakes

A bride-to-be will fall a little in love with her chosen wedding dress and can pay homage to the beauty of her gown by replicating the design in the wedding cake.

The signature style of exquisite beading, a ruffled skirt or a lace-up back can each be mirrored in the fondant details of a truly unique wedding cake. If wedding dress themed wedding cakes tempt your taste buds then take inspiration from the ideas below.

Romantic Ruffles

Ravishing romantic ruffles are a signature feature of fantasy fairytale wedding gowns as showcased in the MB 433W strapless wedding dress with a ruffled ball gown skirt. Ruffles can be re-created in decorative fondant on a cake or a cascading ruffle can be replicated on one side of a cake. Color can be incorporated into the icing on a wedding cake, highlighting the different shades of flowers in the bridal bouquet.

Beaded Beauty

Sparkling beaded wedding cakes.

Brides adore the sparkling shimmer beading brings to wedding gowns such as the MB 713W cutout back wedding dress, with beautiful beading adorning the illusion bodice. The crystals, beads and pearls used as dress embellishments on bodices, necklines and skirts can be mirrored in edible pearls and beads used as decorative features on wedding cakes.

Lovely in Lace

A lace designed wedding cake.

Lovely lace creates a perfect bridal image as seen in the MB 445W A-line wedding gown with a scalloped hemline. Delicate lace is romantic and feminine; a look which can be mirrored in a lace effect decorated wedding cake. Cakes can be designed with a vintage or floral lace themed touch, or with a lace border replicating a scalloped lace hemline.

Lace-Up Back

Inspired by Lace-Up back wedding dresses.

The lace-up back is a signature style of many wedding dress designers and an enduring favorite of brides who love the way it accentuates their figure. The corset back of the MB 423W lace-up-back wedding dress can be replicated on a white iced wedding cake by the use of colored fondant or by using actual satin ribbons as an adornment across the tiers.


Inspired by the feminine bows behind wedding dresses.

Bows are a favourite bridal adornment on wedding gowns. Sashes tie in bows to accentuate slim waistlines, delicate applique bows add romantic touches and flat bows embellish belts as illustrated in the MB 451W sleeveless wedding dress. Bows are a perfect addition to wedding cakes, conjuring the vision of a gift to be unwrapped, hinting the cake has a delicious filling to be discovered. Traditional toppers can be replaced with satin or sugar bows, adding a touch of color.

Beaded Chandelier

Chandelier beading evokes an image of glamour on a wedding gown, embellishing off-the-shoulder straps or illusion backs. It insets the deep V-back of the Allure Bridals W390 trumpet silhouette wedding dress. It is a look that can be re-created on a wedding cake, using glass or fondant beads.

You may love one feature of your wedding dress so much you wish to see it mirrored on the wedding cake, or you may be inspired to re-create the whole gown in a life sized cake.
