Chic Hen Party Cake Ideas
Calling all foodie hens!
For you, your cake is probably a central part of the party planning. Whether you bake it yourself, get a friend to do it or pay a professional you want it to look fabulous and taste truly scrumptious.
We’ve narrowed down our favourite cake designs/concepts for you; each one is sure to be showstopper!
Kisses from the Mrs
A cake designed around lips is fun, flirty and will suit glam brides down to a T.
If you are feeling rather technical you could make a cake that is shaped into lips and cover it in red fondant icing. However, after rifling through Pinterest we discovered a totally chic alternative. Simply ice a layer cake completely white, then using a homemade stencil and some edible pearl dust/glitter paint away to get the desired result.
Your hen party is undeniably and unequivocally all about you (the bride), so it makes sense for the cake to embody you. This may require a more creative design but it will be worth the giggles!
Whether it’s recreating you on a wild night out or perhaps you relaxing with some of the bride squad. Using Barbie dolls for your decoration saves the pain of modelling characters out of fondant icing.
For those of you who live by ‘less is more’ all you need is a striking cake topper.
Keep the cake plain; one colour, classic piping or perhaps the simple drip effect we all drool over on Instagram! With regards to the topper, we particularly love slogans and phrases. You can get them made bespoke on various ETSY or NotOnTheHighStreet shops.
Our particular favourites include ‘drunk in love’, ‘he’s her lobster’ and ‘let’s party b*tches’.
If your budget is a little tight a selection of macarons is the perfect alternative. You’re likely to have less wastage and you’ll get major Parisian vibes.
Whether you create an ombre effect up the stack or go a bit crazy with the colours of the rainbow, it will definitely catch your guests’ eyes.
Pimp your Cupcake
A really cute and interactive idea. Just supply an assortment of cupcakes (whatever flavours you fancy), simply ice them with buttercream and then let your guests do the rest! Fill bowls with the likes of marshmallows, cake sprinkles and jelly beans; anything goes! Each member of your bride squad will then end up with a beautifully decorated cake they can all their own. If cake decorating isn't your thing, you can buy some beautifully decorated cupcakes like these below:
A Little Mischief
We’ve tried to avoid crude cakes in this post but we can’t seem to refuse a little cheekiness.
Victoria’s Secret as brand has taken over our Instagram feeds the past few years and well what woman doesn’t love the feeling when her knickers and bra match?
This cake idea is inspired by all things luxury lingerie! From a cake shaped into a corset, to an illusion cake of the iconic Victoria’s Secret bag. Even personalise it to the bride, changing Victoria to their name e.g. Danielle’s Secret.
