1. Work Work Work

Not the kind that makes you exhausted, but the kind that makes your saris and cholis all blinged out. Why not bring that to life on a cake?

2. Tone on Tone

The attention to detail on this cake is just astounding. The craftsmanship is so on point....you might just say this is the Sabyasachi of wedding cakes

3. Hand Drawn Patterns

If you're looking for something more graphic and playful, try choosing a cake with a bold pattern. The imperfect lines makes it feel more hand done. Also, that blue is to die for.

4. Gold Leaf

This cake takes something as simple as gold leaves to create this blockprint-y pattern. It's simple, has gold, and is beautiful. Drool.

What's a South Asian wedding cake blog post without a henna inspired cake? The key is one color. It takes away any tackiness and keeps it simple & classic. You can't go wrong with this style.

Okay so maybe it's not red, but marsala is close enough. The mixed & matched textures & colors throughout this cake are perfect. There are ways to get colorful without going crazy and this takes the cake!

9.  Maharani Style

Let them eat cake! This one seems like it fit for any queen, or should I say Maharani. The gold borders with this slate blue-ish gray-ish color makes for some regal eye candy.

10.  Color-full

This cake reminds me of a colorful pleated sari. An abstract version, which for me is much more successful. Who said you can't have an elegant and colorful cake? The trick is picking the right color palette with the right saturations of said colors. Going with slightly muted tones always helps.

11. Surprise! Bonus cake

So if you don't have the budget to go all crazy on a cake, choose to go simple with a special cake topper. This bonus cake is actually from our wedding. Jai and I ended up choosing a simple, textural cake with colorful flowers to make it pop. Our friends got us these hand-painted, hand-carved, mis-match-matched, elephant cake topers from India that were just perfect :)  

If you're looking for someone who does cakes in the tri-state area, check out the lovely, Meg Skill: Nutmeg Cake Design, based in Philly. We also got a ton of mini cupcakes through her because we couldn't decide on one flavor ;) and they were the hit of the night. A cake's gotta taste better as good it looks and hers surely did.
