10 Nautical Wedding Cakes {Too Pretty, you may not want to Eat!)

Happy Wednesday friends. Today we are stuck on my favorite theme (as many of you might have noticed), the Nautical awesomeness. After our last post about 10 ways to rock your Nautical wedding, I decided to handpick one of the 10 ways and focus on it today: the Cake.

Compiling this list was not only fun but delicious (if only my eyes could eat!). It is interesting how cakes could add so much character to your wedding and now I am beginning to agree that your wedding cake should not be looked over. These 10 nautical cakes (well 11, if you include the gorgeous cover photo), obviously have a few things in common; Nautical objects such as Anchors, Compasses, Sailboats, and the main color which is Navy Blue. Of course a few go further than the “normal” nautical colors and by so doing, adding extra awesomeness to them!

    My favorite is without a doubt the last one!! Like you said it’s definitely nautical but has a little chicness to it as well.
