2. Consider non-traditional colors, patterns, and shapes
A wedding cake usually appears extraordinary if the basic aspects of its design already veer away from tradition. If you really want to have a something really unique, it’s best to venture beyond safe hues or styles completely. Try novel shapes, patterns, and colors, but don’t forget to make it match your theme.

If you’ve set your event like your back in the Roaring 20s, ask your baker to make you an Art Deco cake complete with geometric shapes and metallic finish. Or, if you’ve got deep red and snowy white for your color motif and a strictly formal occasion, a towering black-and-white concoction would be a fitting surprise.

3. Choose a unique wedding cake topper
Perhaps the easiest way to make your wedding cake different from other couples’ is to choose a personalized topper that’s not the bride-and-groom dolls that you’ve seen on your grandparents’ cake. Be more playful by choosing a topper that represents who you are as a couple.
Consider rainbow-colored lovebirds, kissing koalas, or your favorite animal pair done in an unexpected color. If you’re fans of some TV show, movie, or cartoon, maybe you’d want a fondant version of a famous couple from it.
