Written by Gopika Jairam • 

A tasty piece of cake can make even a dull day interesting. But when it comes to your wedding cake, it not only has to taste delicious but look absolutely stunning too. You only get one big day, and one wedding cake, so make it count, ladies!

If you are looking for ideas to make your wedding cake stand out, you have definitely come to the right place. One great idea you should definitely consider for your wedding cake is using butterflies as your stand-out cake decoration.

Not only are butterflies incredibly beautiful and elegant to look at, but they also are a source of fascinating symbolism and rich inner meaning. Did you know that in almost all cultures, butterflies are seen a symbol of transformation? We all know the process by which the butterfly emerges from its cocoon in its unfurling glory. Not only that, some Asian cultures see butterflies as a symbol for a long and prosperous life.

Think about it, an animal that used to be bound to the ground (the caterpillar) can now spread its gorgeous wings and fly, thus giving it a completely new perspective on its life. What could possibly be a better or more beautiful symbol as you embark upon a wonderful new path with the love of your life? Just like the butterfly, it is time for you to break free and get a beautiful new perspective on life.

So here are some heavenly butterfly wedding cakes for you to feast your eyes and mind on!
