PIC FOR TO CAKE OR CUPCAKEGetting married in Atlanta is exciting and sharing your wedding cake with friends and family creates many joyful moments. Every couple looks for ways to make their wedding special by adding personal touches reflective of their combined style and tastes and the wedding cake is no exception. Share the sweetness at your reception with an Atlanta-baked confection of perfection. Read on for unique Atlanta wedding cake ideas.

Source Locally

Celebrate with a wedding cake containing locally grown fruits and berries. Peaches reign supreme as the sweet favorite. Great peach combinations include peaches and cream, peaches and ginger or peaches and green tea cake. Atlanta is also known for apples, pears, nectarines, figs, persimmons, blueberries, strawberries and blackberries. Choose fruits or berries that are in season for maximum freshness and flavor. Ways to enhance your wedding cake include adding layers of fruits or berries filling and flavoring the frosting or cake. By sourcing locally, you help show support for local farms and Georgia businesses.

Symbolic of Georgia

Love is in the air at your Atlanta wedding. Show your love for where you live with symbols of Georgia on your wedding cake, a charming way to show home-state pride. Elegantly decorate your wedding cake with the state flower, the Cherokee rose or state wildflower, the azalea. Honor the state flag, the Georgian “stars and bars” or the civic flag of Atlanta featuring a field of blue with a yellow city seal. The state fruit is the popular peach known for its tangy sweet juiciness.

Go Team!

Share your love of the home team with an Atlanta sports theme wedding cake. Perhaps your beloved proposed to you with a scoreboard message or kiss cam spot, harken back to that moment with a sports theme wedding cake. Sports teams of Atlanta include the Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Hawks, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and Georgia State Panthers. Top your wedding cake with a topper depicting the couple wearing matching jerseys or holding pennants. Other cake topper ideas include couples playing tennis, golfing or running a marathon.

Groom Cakes

Groom’s cakes are a popular tradition of the south, originating from Victorian times. They are in addition to the wedding cake. Traditionally, the cake is flavored chocolate and garnished with nuts. Unique ideas for an Atlanta groom’s cake include a replica of Turner Stadium, the bulldog mascot of the University of Georgia, favorite hole at the Augusta National Golf Club or enjoyable pastimes such as fishing or bowling.
