Wedding of The Month: Filiz and Cody – Westchester, NY

Filiz and Cody got married at Patriot Hills on March 18th. They are from Westchester, NY.

They got to have their ceremony inside and it looked so beautiful.

The purple uplighting and lanterns down the aisle were a perfect touch for a romantic ceremony.

For the end of the night they had some tasty cordials with Rock Candy!

Such a great idea for something sweet.

Congratulations to Filiz and Cody on a beautiful wedding! From all of us here at Patriot Hills, we wish you both the best!

Naked Wedding Cakes Can Be Beautiful

naked wedding cakes

You don’t need fondant or buttercream to make a statement. Instead of frosting the outside of the cake, many brides are opting to increase the filling between the tiers and leave the outside layers exposed. This DOES NOT mean that your cake will have an unfinished look. Naked cakes can still have a refined style that is worthy of showcasing on your dessert table regardless of whether you’re opting for modern, chic, or rustic. Just work with your baker to create a custom look that reflects your taste.

Here are some great naked wedding cake ideas:

  • Artfully arrange bright blooms around the cake base and tuck more between the tiers to create a whimsical look.
  • Have the flowers cascade down the entire cake.
  • Choose a dark chocolate cake with white icing for stunning contrast.
  • The cake doesn’t need to be completely naked of topping. Drizzle caramel or chocolate ganache for some added flavor and flare.
  • Beautiful berries will add freshness and a pop of color.
  • For a more modern design, choose a square shape.

Choosing A Wedding Cake

exquisite monochromatic cake

You’re planning the big day and now it’s time to check the cake off of your list.  Here are a few tips when deciding about the style and flavor of your cake.

1. Hold off on cake selection until after you have finalized your dress style, wedding theme, and reception decor.  All of these play into your cake design.   If you want colorful accents to coordinate with your dresses or flowers, be sure to give swatches so the cake blends seamlessly.

2. Buttercream or fondant? Many people prefer the taste of buttercream, but love the smooth look of fondant.  You can have both! Have the cake frosted in buttercream then covered in a layer of fondant.

3. Wedding cakes are traditionally vanilla, but that doesn’t mean you can’t break from tradition.  Consider chocolate, hazelnut, lemon or carrot.  You also have a selection of fillings to choose from – jam, buttercream, pureed fruit, whipped cream and lemon curd to name a few.  Some wedding couples also like to consider the menu when selecting a flavor.

4. The look of the cake can be as unique as the bride and groom.  A structured, traditional multi-tiered cake. Square tiers. Multi-shaped tiers. Monochromatic. Colorful.  A touch of bling. Fresh fruit.  Edible flowers. Even cupcakes.  There are so many design options.

To start your creative juices flowing, we have pulled together a few cake designs for inspiration.
