Formal and Fun: The Cake Pop Wedding Cake

Bigcitypops.comBigcitypops.comWedding cakes are an art form - an edible art form for that matter. And for many brides, the wedding cake is just as important as the dress and bouquet on their big day. A wedding cake is not something that is simply eaten and forgotten; it makes a statement with how good it looks, how great it tastes, and it reflects the bride and groom as a couple.

If you are the kind of couple that flirts with styles between "formal" and "fun," an exciting choice for a wedding cake may be a cake pop cake. Instead of using these bite-sized dessert bursts as an aside, use these treats as a replacement for the traditional tiers. From color-coordinated pops (all white seems to be the "it" trend these days) to themed characters, pops are popping up across wedding dessert tables everywhere. While your traditional wedding cake can only cram so much into its design, cake pop pieces can be intricately designed and personalized for a stunning visual presentation.

Pricing varies greatly depending on the design, display method, and accessories, especially since most shops offer custom-made orders. These pops pictured above come from Big City Pops in New York City and start at $36 for one dozen or $9 for one dozen custom pops.

If you aren't ready to take the plunge into a full cake pop wedding cake, try combining your display with a traditional top sheet cake or using the pops as a fun, edible accent. Either way, you can't go wrong with this gorgeous, tasty display.
