Cake love: an Aztec inspired bohemian wedding cake with succulents


Aztec bohemian wedding cake

Sometimes I really struggle to come up with titles for blog posts that describe them in a lovely way, however today I really just wanted to write “a really nice cake”.  So my apologies for the over-zealous title description, but I didn’t want to write “mid-western” or “south-western” wedding cake, so I went with what it reminded me of.

For this wedding cake it’s all about the decoration, as the cake itself is a simple tiered white wedding cake, but the Aztec inspired fabric, the coffee beans at the base of the cake and the quirky succulents and other desert plants make it fun and funky.

Certainly for my British readers I’m not sure whether such a wedding cake would ever fit with a wedding (unless you are having a Wild West themed wedding!) but I really liked that it showcases how you can pretty-up a simple white cake with a few well thought-out decorations.
