What Cake Would Go With A Burgundy And White Wedding Theme?

Bold colours pop on white. Burgundy and white look stunning together. If this is a colour theme you want to incorporate into your wedding; you are going to have fun! What about the cake? Can you add burgundy on white? A Wedding Theme is a thread that shows itself clearly in everything. So the invitations, flowers, decor, the cake and the favours all tie together and look fantastic when done well. In burgundy white wedding themes you most certainly should add the bold colour to the cake. If it seems a bit too much, consider going with pastel tones with touches of the bold colour amongst it all.

Getting The Right Amount Of Burgundy to White On The Cake

Not so comfortable with the amount of colour? A more subtle approach would be a cake like this. With just a sprinkling of the burgundy against the white with the only other colours being the grey-green leaves and pale pink roses.

Or perhaps this beautiful ruffle wedding cake. It almost looks like the burgundy roses are dried, but it is subtle and not overwhelming.

Just a touch of the bold colour, but enough to make it work in the theme of burgundy and white.

Adding Other Colours To The Burgundy

While the white works with the burgundy, it’s interesting to me that often other colours are brought in to it. The colour works well with greens, pinks and purples. Here’s one that adds orange and gold to the mix.

And here is burgundy and blue with a touch of white. It’s an interesting combination and shows that wedding cakes can be any colour. The trick with this kind of cake is to get your tones correct. Stick to cool or warm colours and be careful about mixing them.
