Brides who are in love with the famous naked cakes can use these toppings to their hearts’ content to leave their cakes with an even more delicious appearance! In this case, caramel-flavour toppings are the most common, as they harmonise perfectly with these wonderful cakes!

Elegant

More classic weddings can feature these on their sweet tables, but in a sophisticated way! The confectioner prepares the cake with the desired height and shape, covers it with sugar paste or frosting and finishes the cake with candy toppings in delicate colours or even metallic shades like silver or gold! The elements used for decoration end up being highlighted even more on this type of cake!

Mega Original

What if the drips were done upside down? Yes, this is very much a possibility because it has a texture that stays firm after being applied! Confectioners have taken advantage of this trend by using it over other techniques. The decorations surprise people for their creativity, and appear like sculptures of chocolate, macarons, flowers and even popcorn – amazing!

Double Coverage

Not only double, but triple, quadruple … White cakes can take toppings in the same colours that will be used in your decoration, creating a beautiful harmony in the middle of the venue! There is still the option of metallic coverings, which create an elegant and sophisticated look!

Minis

If you have already chosen your cake, but would like to take advantage of all the charm of this technique, further increase the decoration of your sweet table with super original mini cakes! These little cakes can follow the same decorations used for the main wedding cake or come out colourful, creating a festive and impressive effect!
