Green Weddings: A Green Cake

. category: Wedding Tips
  • To be honest finding ways to make a wedding cake be eco friendly is quite a challenge. It's already being handmade no matter who makes it. But here are a few ideas to help make your wedding cake be a little more green. Have your wedding cake made with fairtrade ingredients or use an organic baker. Don't be afraid to ask your bakery if they do or would use only fairtrade ingredients.Why not serve your wedding cake for dessert? It will save you money on the dessert course and this way you're sure to have your cake eaten. Or consider having a smaller cake. If you're not serving your cake for dessert do you really need a huge cake? Consider a one or two tier cake instead of a three or four tier cake.If you are having wedding cupcakes, consider zero wrappers; non-stick cupcake pans can be used to bake perfectly paper-free cupcakes. If you really must have cupcake wraps, use wraps that are made from recycled paper or hand make them using scraps of paper that you may already have.Lastly don't forget about your cake topper! You don't have to go out and buy a fancy cake topper, there are so many great options. These cute handmade paper toppers found on Wedzu are recyclable and look fab! You could also top your cake with locally grown flowers, herbs, fruit, fabric even tree branches work wonders! Be creative and add a bit of personality to your cake while keeping it green.*all photos courtesy of me with the exception of the cake toppers found on Wedzu
