The Disney Inspiration: Royal Wedding Cakes

Get ready Disney fans - we've got our favorite princess-inspired wedding ideas coming over the next several days!  (yes, we admit it, we're recovering Disney addicts over here at Bridal Bar.  We may never fully grow up - but that's okay!)  Onto the weddings...
Kate and Cinderella may in fact be princesses, but that doesn't mean they have a monopoly on royal-worthy weddings! If you loved what you saw at this years Royal Wedding, or always dreamed of having an elegant wedding fit for a Queen, then we're here to help today with a very important element... your cake!
Inspired by the magical offerings Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons has for a princess-worthy wedding and by Kate and William's dreamy wedding, we've rounded up the perfect royal-worthy, all-white wedding cakes. Now all you have to do is decide...traditional or modern?

As you would expect, the Duke & Duchess went for a traditional wedding cake that was a true showstopper. Cakes may be optional nowadays at a wedding, but sometimes it's refreshing to see traditional decorating techniques like piping and elaborate sugar flowers adorning tall tiered confections.

Perhaps you like the tradition of a white wedding cake but want to put your own spin on it. Newer techniques like the lace and applique-inspired versions below may be just for you! Take it a step further and serve individual cakes to each guest (making each person feel like royalty!), or replace floral centerpieces with small cakes that are just big enough to feed the table, and elaborate enough to look fabulous all on their own!

Stay tuned for more Disney inspired and oh-so sophisticated big idea ideas tomorrow!
