Let’s be honest…we all know it’s the big, multi-tiered wedding cakes that get all the press…all the Oooohs and Aaaaaahs! But, the truth is that many of our requests for wedding cakes are for two-tier cakes that still have a very special wedding feel to them. We are so happy to create these lovely wedding cake for our amazing clients!
Here are a few of our two-tier favorites:
We added a glitzy, sparkling cake stand to this cake…giving it the feel of a third tier at fractions of the cost.
Adding a special design, in a metallic gold, makes the cake a true sparkler!
Succulents and eucalyptus greens are a favorite greenery used often by our brides. We love the natural and sweet look of this!
Bring the beach vibe to your two-tier cake, by adding the white starfish and blue ribbon, with yellow flowers to shine on your cake!
We are in Cabo so adding white chocolate shells is always fun!
Pink ombre is beautiful and romantic…and looks lovely with the ocean blue in the background.

2016 is still a new year, so it’s not too late to continue looking at wedding trends! Our focus this blog is…the coolest new wedding cakes. The trends in wedding cake design are fun and colorful…perfect for a Cabo wedding! Check out our favorite 4 trends for 2016 – we are excited to create these for you! So…let’s get started…
Trend #1: The naked cake in CHOCOLATE! (Yes, the naked cake was really popular in 2015, but almost always in vanilla or a neutral color/flavor. For 2016, the hip way to create this cake is by embracing the chocolate, and letting it all hang out!)
Trend #2: Gold flaking on the cake! Not the whole cake…just a touch of shine. Let that cake glow!
Trend #3: The color drip! It’s actually a sweet flavored icing – delish – that also adds a touch of the creative to your cake design.
Trend #4: The geometric wedding cake! Either the shape of the actual cake or the shape of the design on the cake…both options are magical!
As black and white themed weddings have become more popular (even at destination wedding locations like Cabo San Lucas), we’ve upped our game when it comes to cake decor. Black and white wedding cakes have become high-end and on-trend, and we here at Cabo Flowers & Cakes are specialist for this type of cake.
Here are some examples of how a black and white wedding cake stays traditional, elegant and yet unique. A few things to be aware of for a black and white Cabo wedding cake:
1. An expert cake designer, like we have on staff at Cabo Flowers & Cakes, must make sure your colors do not run! The black stays black, and the white stays white. This is the #1 consideration when creating a beauty like these cakes.
2. Keep it classy! One way to do this is to have more white than black on your wedding cake. This keeps your cake amazing, not scary.
3. Pull in the decor from your bridal attire and/or event decor. Black polka dots or stripes on your event linens? Pull that theme into your cake decor as well.
In the end, a black and white cake is a perfect way to pull together all of your black and white event decor.
#1 HOW WILL THIS CAKE FARE IN THE WEATHER [ON YOUR DATE]?
Different cakes (and frostings) react differently in different temperatures. With most Cabo weddings being held outdoors, this is a really important question to ask. Then make sure that the cake you’ve picked out will hold up perfectly during your event’s time of the year.
#2 CAN I SAVE (AND TRAVEL WITH) MY CAKE TOP?
Tradition says that the top tier of your cake should be saved for your one year anniversary. However, if you are having a destination wedding (like in Cabo), many countries may limit what you can and can’t take back across the border. If you have to check off the box on your Customs form stating that you are carrying back food, this may increase your chances at time in the Customs line. Don’t bring back food. Enjoy your top tier of your cake with your guests at the event, or save it for the day or two afterwards.
#3 WHAT IS YOUR SPECIALTY?
Your cake baker’s specialty will be that cake that she specializes in, that she is an expert at. It will be the cake that she likes the best and is very proud of. That may be reason enough to trust her and trust that this must be one awesome cake combination for it to be so highly regarded by her. Go for the specialty, at least on one tier!
#4 HOW DO YOU PRESENT THE CAKE?
Does the cake include a cake stand? Is there a choice of cake stand? Can I see photos of that? What about with cupcakes? (Their presentation is especially important, as you don’t want them to look like you are at an elementary school birthday party in your wedding photos.) How the cake is actually presented on the night of your wedding is almost as important as how it tastes. Almost…
In the end, your cake tasting should be fun and informative (and a great way to get your groom involved as well.) We all love a great slice of cake! At Cabo Flowers & Cakes, we love a tasting too because it gives us a chance to make sure our couples are happy and in love with their cake choices.
