Regardless if you'd like to express yourself by adding a few subtle visual enhancements to your baked masterpiece, or you want your ceremony's most important dessert to stand out like a bright purple tux at a black-tie wedding, you might want to consider adding a bit of color to your wedding cake. It's easy to match your cake to your location, theme or wedding colors by adding a few light-colored hues, but if you want to go really crazy, here are a few ideas:

  • Camouflage cake -- For the bride and groom with guns! This is a great choice for either enlisted couples or hunting fanatics.
  • Wildlife print -- It's like the opposite of camo. Celebrate nature's most visually striking animals with zebra or cheetah-print cakes (complete with a mane of frosting). A perfect option for wild couples who plan to spend their honeymoon on a safari!
  • Bright neon -- This one speaks for itself, and it's really just about making a cool, loud cake. Neon pink, blue and green are great options for the kitschy couple for whom standard colors aren't just bright enough.
  • Tie-dye -- Tie-dyed cakes are perfect for the pair who're hippies at heart or for anyone who just wants a unique cake that your guests will be talking about for years to come. Grateful Dead music won't be included with your order, however, so you're going to have to bring your own.
