A wedding cake is more than just a cake. It is a focal point of the reception that reflects the style of the bride and groom. While many couples opt for the caterer’s included cake, many others hire a baker to create a cake that is representative of the couple and will also dazzle their guests. Las Vegas is a popular theme people use for their reception and also want a fun cake to go with the theme. Here are some ideas for Vegas wedding cakes.
1. Casino Chips
The casino chip is a very well known symbol of Las Vegas. This can be used as a tiered cake, each tier being a different colored chip. That way there can be a tradition accompanied with some Las Vegas flair. Where the hotel’s name would be, the bride and grooms and the date of the wedding could be written in its place. Using different colored fondant can be used to create a realistic look.
2. Welcome to Las Vegas Sign
This classic symbol of Las Vegas can work well as a sheet cake or a specialty cake designer could even create a cake that stood upright like the sign.
Another Las Vegas cake idea is making a dice shaped cake. The baker could make a few large die wrapped in white fondant and black circles made of fondant to make the numbers. Candies shaped like gaming chips could also adorn the display as well.
4. Elvis and the Elvis Guitar
If Elvis is one of your favorite parts of the Vegas flair, then having a cake made in the shape of Elvis or his famous guitar. Talk with the cake designer on how to make this idea come to life.
A traditional tiered can also be used to tie the Las Vegas theme together. Consider adding a Vegas themed cake topper. It gives a little touch of the town while keeping the cake traditional.
Typically, wedding cakes are made from white cake with a white butter cream frosting. However, a baker can create the cake with whatever type of cake, frosting and filling you like. They can even make different tiers of the cake different flavors. When you meet with the baker, be sure to ask to sample some of the cakes so you know exactly what it will taste like and so you will be sure it is exactly what you want.
