The Asian wedding industry is known for its opulent show-stopping wedding cakes that are full of grandeur, and that mesmerise the audience. So much more than a cake, Asian wedding cakes are works of art, with a luxury and quality that you expect for your wedding day.

Elaborate Asian wedding cakes to take centre stage should taste as good on the inside as it looks on the outside.

Looking for something different for your big day? Here are six stunning Asian wedding cake ideas that offer surprise, elegance and style. With one of these cakes adorning the cake table, you can be sure to create the perfect cake cutting ceremony photograph and leave a lasting impression on your guests.

Six stunning Asian wedding cake ideas

  • Cake-Pop Tiers

Do you have many guests to feed? Alternatively, perhaps you have so many ideas for wedding cake flavours that you do not know which one to choose? A cake-pop tiered-cake is the perfect way of having lots of different cake flavours that all come together to create a stunning tiered design. Similar to the French wedding classic, croquembouche, you can pile up bite-sized spheres of cake, held together in a stunning design.

Decorate each cake flavour differently, but in complementing colours so that guests know exactly which flavour they are choosing. We think honey and pistachio cake-pops work wonderfully with Gajar Halwa, carrot and cardamom.

  • Mehndi-Style Cake

Mehndi plays such a significant role in weddings and celebrations. With this in mind, you can continue the theme with your cake too. Decorating your cake with intricate mehndi designs helps to tie in the design across the wedding beautifully.

Mehndi designs also work wonderfully as the design changes depending on where you look at it. From far away the outline could be a creeping flower climbing up the tiers, at close proximity the design may transform into an intricate pattern of hearts.

The great benefit about mehndi style cakes as they can be subtle and glamorous or bold and colourful.

  • Rose Gold

Nothing shows glamour and style more than a metallic rose gold finish for your many-tiered wedding cake. You can add to the rose gold theme by having a rose and cardamom flavoured sponge, sandwiched together with soft, fluffy white chocolate buttercream.

While the cake can have as many tiers as you want, an elegant sweep of natural-looking sugar flowers trailing the cake will help to show its intricacy and artistic flair. To keep your cake in theme, make sure you tell the baker which flowers you will have at your wedding or will hold as a bouquet. This way, the sugar flowers can be crafted to match.

  • Naked Cakes

Naked cakes are a big trend for weddings. By stripping away the icing, you put the focus on the flavours and colours on the cake instead of masking its inner beauty. Naked cakes are ideal if you want to make your cakes pack a powerful flavour punch.

The beauty of a naked cake is that you get to let all the layers shine and create a beautiful colour palette that comes from natural flavours. We love multiple layer cakes feature coconut and cherry sponges which alternate deep pink and white layers. Pineapple and anise sponges sprinkled with pistachios and drizzled with passionfruit make for an ideal tropical wedding cake.

Just because the cake is not covered in icing, it does not mean it cannot be decorated. Piped meringue on top of the cake gives a light but stylish finish and a great crunch when you get around to cutting the cake with your beloved.

  • Hidden Room

Is there a specific place that holds a special place in your heart? If you and your partner have a special place or perhaps have fallen in love in the room where you will be married, why not transform your wedding cake to look like the room. Cutting away in the middle of the cake allows cake makers the space to create a stunning room inside the cake. Complete with flooring and the even chandelier light fittings, you can recreate a favourite place in an edible format.

It is a good idea to let the rest of the cake be classically styled with minimal detail to show the room off in all of its stunning glory.

  • Chocolate Sculpture

If a traditional wedding cake does not excite you, then perhaps a chocolate sculpture will. Chocolate sculpting is more durable meaning you can create your perfect design, from a birdcage to a waterfall scene, from a lotus flower to a cherry blossom tree; the possibilities are endless when it comes to chocolate sculpting.

Not only will it impress your guests, but it will be moreish too, by the end of your wedding day, there may not be any left!
