Wedding Cakes With Waterfalls

Sep 2, 2008
The centerpiece of nearly any wedding reception is the cake. With the many colors, shapes and styles for wedding cakes, the variations are endless with an enormous opportunity to be creative. One way to create a 'WOW' factor from your guests is to choose a wedding cake with a water feature. Wedding cakes with waterfalls can be elegant or whimsical, commemorating a special memory such as a favorite vacation spot or proposal location. Or a waterfall feature can simply be a unique way to highlight your wedding cake at your reception.

Mixing Waterfalls and Cake Sugar

Just as you would want to consider the type of cake you want if your reception is outdoors on a hot August day, you would want to consider your location and desired cake type if you would like a water feature. Wedding cakes with waterfalls can be designed to accommodate nearly any venue with some planning for things such as possible electrical outlets if your waterfall is not battery operated. The type of icing and cake decorations may need to be slightly altered depending on the style of your cake if the design of the waterfall interferes or inhibits any of your desired choices. A skilled cake designer will be able to advise you of any possible issues during the design phase.

Featuring your Waterfall

A waterfall feature can be built right in to the cake using materials such as acrylic tubing. By using the acrylic tubing method, you could potentially have the waterfall running right though the middle of your cake. Depending on how the feature is designed, this method can minimize the amount of water exposed to the cake if it is contained exclusively through the acrylic tubing. It can also increase your creativity opportunity by using colored water to coordinate with your wedding theme.

You can also choose to have your cake tiers surround a more elaborate water feature. This method lends itself to being more whimsical with the opportunity to stack cakes in an unexpected sequence surrounding the waterfall. You can also use this method to feature a more natural waterfall, with water trickling down a bed of rocks. This method may also allow you to keep the waterfall feature in place after the cake has been served.

Additional items can be used to highlight the special features of wedding cakes with waterfalls. By using colored water, special lighting, music or photos of the waterfall you may be trying to replicate, you are truly providing an unexpected, customized wedding cake that your guests will remember.

If you are looking to have a water feature in your wedding cake, you should be sure to discuss your options with your cake designer. Each designer is likely to have their own techniques for creating wedding cakes with waterfalls which may cause you to shop around a little more for a designer that can accommodate your request. Additionally, you should also ensure that the site of your reception is prepared to assist with the specialized set up of your cake and the take down at the end of your event.
