Rose and Sunflower Wedding Cake

Artificial flowers. When making a simple sunflower and rose cake, simply cover the cake in white frosting and add artificial flowers around the cake. You can also add frosting that looks like vines or leaves. This can work for one layer or tiered cakes. This gives a realistic and beautiful look to your cake. This can be done simply by yourself or you can get a bakery to make this cake for you with the same concept.

Cupcakes. Using the concept above you can make cupcakes for your guests to replace cake. You could still make a small cake for the bride and groom. Using frosting you can make flower designs on your cake or cupcakes instead of fake or candied flowers.

Wood cake stand. Using a wood cake stand gives a beautiful rustic touch to compliment the rose and sunflower. These wood stands can be found at almost any home decor store, online, or you can have one custom made for your cake. These stands look like wood discs and are commonly made from oak or pine.

Cake topper. Another way you can add roses or sunflowers to your wedding cake is with a topper. These can be as extravagant or as simple as you like. Using real flowers on a topper is a great touch or you can use fake ones as well.
