Cameos are so stunning, that they should by no means only make a small cameo appearance on the wedding day. And what better way to showcase a cameo than on the piece de resistance of the wedding day: The wedding cake!

Whether you use the real McCoy straight out of Grandma’s jewellery box or have the cake designer sculpt a cameo out of sweet fondant – cameos are guaranteed to add a touch of timeless elegance to your wedding cake. Combined with other elegant cake décor bits, like cake pearls and bling, you can create a striking piece that speaks of romance and drama.

While cameos traditionally boast the silhouette of a stunning French dame, there’s a great opportunity to have some fun here with custom made cameos. For instance, why not replace the dame with a favourite animal silhouette, or even a skeleton!

Another excellent way to incorporate cameos into your cake is with silhouette cameo cake toppers. While black would be the obvious choice, there’s no reason why you can’t opt for a silhouette in the colour of your wedding theme. This same silhouette theme can be carried through into other elements of your wedding day like the stationery and table décor.

Floral cameos are also a brilliant means of putting a spin on the traditional cameo. The choice of flower depiction on the cameo can beautifully reflect that of your chosen wedding flower – in fact, you could even complement the cake design by adding fresh blossoms as decoration.
