Wedding Cakes With Pearls

These pretty wedding cakes with pearls range include all white with flowers, colorful, and elegant. The inspiration designs will give you ideas for a tiered cake for your reception.

Fondant pearls are the most realistic because they can be shaped individually and dried, then dusted with luster dust to give them the sheen.

They can also be made in different colors to match a wedding color theme, or piped with buttercream icing, but those won’t be as perfectly round.
