Eiffel Tower wedding cakes are a gourmet feat of icing, baking, and wedding cake design, perfect for many types of nuptials and with many styles to bring a bit of Parisian romance to any wedding festivities.
Designs for Eiffel Tower Wedding Cakes
There are many unique design options for an exquisite Eiffel Tower cake. The tower has beautiful architecture that can be mimicked or recreated in a number of ways, including:
- An abstract or precise recreation of the Eiffel Tower as the entire cake
- A single layer cake used as the observation deck of an Eiffel Tower wedding cake stand
- Choosing an Eiffel Tower wedding cake top in porcelain, crystal, or metal
- Creating an intricately detailed cake complete with interior lighting
- A large tower cake with individual square wedding cakes serving as the base for each foot of the structure
- Cutout Eiffel Tower accents adorning a more traditional wedding cake
- A sculpted or molded chocolate tower used as a topper or accents on the cake
Couples should be aware that because of the detailed architecture of the Eiffel Tower, an elaborate tower cake will generally have a higher wedding cake price than a simpler design. A specialized baker will be needed to create a highly detailed cake, though simpler variations or toppers can be applied to most styles of wedding cakes with minimal effort or expense.
