It’s also a great choice because there are so many ways to style the drip cake in line with your tastes or wedding theme. It can add a splash of color to a neutral cake, or a touch of sleekness to a monochrome, minimalistic cake design.

Drip cakes are versatile and don’t have to be dripped in just frosting. They can also be adorned with anything from berries, figs, or trails of flora and fauna.


Types of Wedding Cakes Drip

  • An earthy, naked three, or single-tiered cake dripping in chocolate ganache would be great for a fall, backyard wedding. Decorate the cake with red flora and gorgeous berries for a decadent finish.
