What do you do when you are one of those couples who is inspired by color and can’t choose just one for your wedding cake? Opt for a multi-colored wedding cake (also sometimes referred to as a “rainbow wedding cake”).
Traditionally, wedding cakes were always decorated primarily with white fondant icing, and if any color was used at all, it was minimal, limited to accents for the cake only. Today’s couples have a lot more choice when it comes to color – to the point that some couples find it hard to choose just one color for their wedding cake. A multicolored wedding cake is an exciting option when you want to break out of the box and add a more whimsical vibe to your wedding cake. For couples today, color is a terrific way to express their own unique personality at their weddings, and almost anything goes in terms of color – including the multi-colored wedding cake.
A delightful multi-colored wedding cake, in a three tier design, with each tier decorated in a different pastel color -pastel yellow for the top tier, pastel pink for the middle tier, and pastel green for the bottom tier.

Some refer to this style of cake with a different color for each tier as a rainbow wedding cake. A large fondant bow like the type you’d find a top a pretty wrapped gift tops this cake, and the swirl design cake separators between each tier carry the sense of movement created by the circle designs on each layer. This is a cake that’s got a fun, fresh vibe to it.
