From a classic tiered cake to more contemporary shaped creations, there are so many irresistible cake ideas. Read on for our favorite Bridal Shower Cake ideas.
One of the highlights of a bridal shower is the cake, so why not make it a real centerpiece. We have selected 10 of our favorite and most beautiful Bridal Shower cake ideas to inspire you in your baking.
1. Keep it simple
A stunning but simple and understated option is this beautiful tiered cake by Puddles The Cake Company. Three different sized cakes are stacked on top of each other and filled simply with buttercream. You could use flavored creams in each of the cakes, citrus flavors would work really well. Decorate with simple leafy sprigs of rosemary and herbs, place on a simple white cake stand and you have a stunning cake fit for any bride!
2. Keep it Fresh!
Fresh flowers always make a stunning addition to a table and a simple naked iced cake decorated with fresh flowers in your color scheme is a gorgeous way to personalize your cake and ensure continuity in your party styling.
Trim the stems off of your favorite blooms and tuck into clusters in two or three areas of the cake. You don’t need many flowers to get a great effect, think less is more when creating this look!
3. Soft pastel macaroons
Macaroons are a super delicate treat that you can creatively shape to resemble a tiered cake. Easy to eat, and loved by everyone, macaroons make a great bridal shower cake alternative. Use a tiered cake stand as your base and incorporate some blush-colored roses to tie it all together. Layer the macaroons and the flowers on top of each other to create this stunning centrepiece.
4. Handpainted fondant
This is a unique spin on a traditional fondant cake using fondant paints to color the fondant once it has been placed on the cake. Choosing colors in your theme, use large brushes to color and blend the paints in rough, loose strokes down the side of the cake. Finish with a couple of macaroons or flowers on the top.
5. Good Old Chocolate Cake
An old favorite, and my personal fave, nothing beats the taste of homemade chocolate cake. Here is a simple recipe to make this yourself and decorate with butter cream and chocolate shards.

Take inspiration from little girls parties and think all things pink. This simple cake, iced with soft pink butter cream and decorated simply but very effectively with sprinkles and makes a gorgeous centrepiece to your bridal shower table. You can find the recipe here.
