Your Engagement Cake: 12 Ways to “Put a Ring on It”!
We found so many cake creations working diamond rings into the design in such imaginative ways. Which style will you choose for your bridal shower or engagement dinner?
5 Unique Cake Designs from Casual to Formal
You could opt for an entire cake in the form of a ring (1) with sparkly frosting and a huge gem on top. Or this clever alternative to an actual cake: cupcakes! Either with individual cupcakes arranged to form a ring shape (2), with frosting colors to simulate the band and the diamond stone; or cupcakes with ring embellishments displayed on a tiered stand (3) with a petite cake on the top layer.
Another unique idea comes courtesy of a proposal cake with fondant cutout letters (4) that “pop the question” and present an actual ring on top! While for an elegant effect, you could choose a gorgeous single-layer cake topped with roses and a pair of rings (5) plus a monogram medallion.
7 Variations on the Ring Box Cake Design
Apparently very popular (judging from the dozens of such cakes we saw!) is the ring box-inspired engagement cake. Again, there are variations you can choose from, depending on your theme and color motif.
If you happen to be having a Tiffany-themed celebration, a ring box cake in the signature Tiffany blue color would be perfect – either atop layers featuring lovely “quilted” and ruffled fondant (6) or simply a replica of the Tiffany jewelry box holding an actual or faux ring (10, 11).
Mini ring box cakes (7) are a sweet idea to be given out as favors. Or you could pick up the color motif of your shower or engagement dinner with a lavender-embellished ring box cake (8), one in classic white fondant (9) with pearl-accented quilting, or a more modern ring box design in white and red (12) with black ribbon trimmings.
Now, we’re popping the question! With such inspiring design choices, will you go with a Diamond Ring Engagement Cake?
