What is boho style wedding cakes?

Boho wedding cakes exude free-spirited essence and individuality. Embracing simplicity, they feature neutral palettes and nature-inspired adornments. They harmoniously merge vintage aesthetics with modern sensibilities, making them a celebration statement piece.

What are the flavors of boho cake?

Boho cake flavors blend taste with aesthetics. From rich dark chocolate to refreshing lemon, choices echo nature and authenticity. Emphasizing organic ingredients, these cakes often surprise with fresh berries or handmade preserves, capturing the earth’s essence.

What is the difference between rustic and boho style?

Rustic style embodies countryside charm with raw elements like wood. Boho, or ‘Bohemian’, mixes free-spirited, eclectic vibes with vintage flair. While both draw from nature, rustic is homely and grounded, whereas boho captures wanderlust and artistic expression.

Boho Wedding Cake Ideas

Boho wedding cakes typically have one thing in common: simplicity. But don’t make the mistake of confusing simple with boring. On the contrary, boho-influenced cakes create a maximum effect out of understated elements. For instance, cakes in this style might use just one or two colours, such as white, brown, light purple, dusty rose, or even pale blue. Embellishments inspired by nature give the cake an enchanting touch.

The flavor of cake is completely up to you. Dark, rich chocolate cakes evoke an earthy vibe, while strawberry wedding cakes have a folksy feel. Other popular choices include vanilla and raspberry. You can even incorporate fresh fruit for a simple (and healthy) addition.

If you’re having a hard time deciding on one flavor, some couples even mix up tradition by offering cupcakes instead. This way, you can choose as many flavors as you like, and there’s something for everyone!

Consider a Rustic Boho Wedding Cake

One popular choice is a rustic boho wedding cake, a very subtle style of cake. You won’t see any hot pinks, neon blues, or loud oranges here. Instead, colours are typically muted. The added touches to the cake are understated and can include:

  • Dried flowers and feathers for delicate decorations
  • A large wood slice as a cake stand to provide an outdoorsy touch
  • Candied or dried orange slices for a homey feel

Nature-Inspired Boho Wedding Cakes

Some of the prettiest boho wedding cakes are inspired directly by nature. These types of cakes often utilise fresh plants, including beautiful white, pale pink, or light lavender roses. Other options for nature vibes include:

  • Greenery such as sage, olive branches, or rosemary
  • Dainty flowers like baby’s breath and wild flowers
  • Flower pressed on cakes is the latest trend decoration

Boho Wedding Cakes With Metallic Touches or Macrame decoration

Another lovely option for boho wedding cakes is a low-key, metallic leaf design. Edible bronze, gold, or silver leaf details add a boho chic touch to your cake without being over the top. Small amounts of silver icing drizzled over an otherwise white cake can have a similar effect.

Macrame has made its come back from the 70’s and it is now the best styling idea to bring the boho theme to next level. Believe us, Macrame decoration on your wedding cake will be the perfect ultimate boho touch.
