Fountain Wedding Cakes
Why choose a fountain style cake? Because they are beautiful and the sound of the running water is unique to a bridal cake and the trickling water gives off a feeling of peace and tranquility. The water can be colored to coordinate with your wedding pallet making your confectioner's delight even more spectacular. These cakes are flashy and can be even more dramatic if you decorate them with flowers and crystals.
Waterfalls are regarded as sacred sites in many cultures around the world. So why not bring the power of God and nature into your celebration by having a fountain in your cake?
The pictures featured below are from McArthur's Bakery of St. Louis. McArthur's Bakery has been in business for over fifty years and bakes with only the finest ingredients. Each cake is made from scratch and has to pass inspection by Randy McArthur's keen eye and discerning taste.
The above dramatic round layered confectioners delight has components of a traditional cake with the chic red water fountain. The fountain can also be lit up with lights making the cake even more impressive.
Fountain Wedding Cakes with Stairs
This three tier creation sits on top of a fountain, supported by round columns giving off an aura of a majestic temple. The soft blue water fountain brings to mind a married life of peace and harmony.
This four tier bridal delight is unusual because the fountain is on top of the first tier of the cake. In order to have the water fountain on top of the first tier you need the proper support or the fountain will sink into layers below. I especially like the look of the second set of pillars being different than the bottom columns. It give the cake more dimension and a very dramatic effect.
This mulit tier fountain wedding cake is very impressive with all the different components: pillars, a triple set of stairs bridging the different layers together.
This cake is similar to the one above but notice how the different shaped cakes (heart shaped bottom tier) helps make it more interesting.
Fountain Wedding Cakes Enlarged
I magnified the fountain portion of this creation to help you get a better sense of the detail of the cake and fountain.
When considering having a fountain cake, think about renting the fountain instead of purchasing it. You will also need to speak with the baker about how to conceal the wires and tubing for the water. Greenery, fresh or silk flowers can be used to hide the technicalities of your fountain.
