And if you’re considering something low-key but still radiates elegance, here are some simple wedding cakes you may like:
Simple Yet Elegant Wedding Cake Designs
1. Rustic + Modern Filpiniana Wedding Cake by Miel Cake Design
This cake’s pretty straightforward in terms of structure. It only has one tier and uses a bunch of dried flowers in muted colors as its ornament. Yet, it looks so sophisticated. But what makes it even more special is the inscription on it that says, “Ang kailangan ng puso ko ay ikaw.” Romantic, isn’t it?
2. Wedding Cake with Fresh Daisies and Dried Ruscus by Ikea’s Cakes and Pastries
Those who believe cakes with plain white frosting and minimal décor are boring probably haven’t seen this particular creation of Ikea’s Cakes and Pastries. It features a really simple design that puts a spotlight on what nature can offer in a subtle yet tasteful manner. Though the colors of the fresh daisies and dried Ruscus used on the cake are both very tamed, they are still able to add to the cake’s overall charm.
3. Wedding Cake with Sugar Flowers by Sabie Bakes
You may find it hard to believe at first, but the flowers that embellish this lovely cake are edible. They’re handmade as well, so just imagine the level of artistry involved in the creation of this masterpiece. Notice how amazing the texture on the cake’s first layer, too. It perfectly mimics the texture we usually see in luxury bags, and it effectively gives the cake an elegant feel.
4. Minimalist Wedding Cake with Dried Leaves and Edible Gold Sheets by Isabel’s Oven
What better way to make your wedding cake look more regal than to add gold sheets to it? In fact, they can be used alongside dried leaves and flowers. This combo may seem strange at first, but you’ll realize that the gold sheets’ extravagance goes so well with the subdued appearance the dried flowers create.
5. Rose-Topped Wedding Cake by Sugary Passion Cakes and Pastries
This cake perfectly demonstrates how a textured finish can add character to a rather simple cake. Add handmade roses in baby pink and some leaves to the design and you have a classic-looking cake that oozes with elegance.

7. Rustic + Romantic Wedding Cake with Blooms in Autumn Colors from Lovelots Cakes
Autumn color palettes are so gorgeous, no wonder many people are so in love with them, even here in the Philippines where we don’t have this season. If you are a fan of this season, too, and you’re getting hitched soon, you may want to consider this design by Lovelots Cakes. Its textured yet very subtle all-white finish is a perfect contrast to its ornaments, which are flowers in vibrant Autumn hues.
8. Minimalist Wedding Cake with Fresh Australian Rosemary and Fragrant Lavender by Daniel’s Bakeshop
This cake is a treat to the senses, not only because it’s a sight to behold and the mouthwatering flavors it has but also because of the scent anyone who gets close to it can pick up. Well, it is adorned with fresh rosemary and lavender, so what do we expect? It’s so unique, too, as it veers away from the usual things used to jazz up wedding cakes.
9. Simple Wedding Cake with Baby’s Breath Flowers by Katt’s Cakeshop
Baby’s breath flowers are lovely, but they’re usually not the main attraction in floral arrangements, particularly in those that feature exotic blooms. Unlike such creations, though, this wedding cake by Katt’s Cakeshop highlights the beauty of these underrated flowers, even using them to form a delicate border around the simple yet meaningful inscription on the cake that reads, “finally,” followed by the date of the couple’s wedding.
As they say, less is more. Definitely, it also applies to wedding cakes. As seen in these designs, one doesn’t always have to choose towering cakes with elaborate details to exude elegance. After all, light hues and minimalist decors, when tastefully put together, can create chic designs that are just picture-perfect.
