Nowadays, many couples throw an engagement party, inviting family and friends to share their happiness. To treat their guests, they need a beautiful cake. If you are throwing an engagement party, here are some of the best engagement cakes to give you an idea.

1. Bege e Preto

This two-tier black and beige cake is a simple yet elegant choice for engagement. Adorning the cake board is the title of the event. The bottom tier features alternating stripes of elegant black and soft beige. The smaller top tier is delicately decorated with a ribbon of a beautiful flower.

2. Black and Red Silhouette

This lovely four-tier cake is another top choice for your engagement party. It is beautiful, elegant, and extraordinarily artistic. The bottom tier is enveloped entirely in vibrant red frosting. On the second tier, a captivating silhouette of a couple locked in a tender kiss is set against a serene landscape background. The tree from the second tier, with its red leaves, extends upward, continuing onto the third and top tiers.

3. Love Cake

Sometimes, simplicity renders the best results, and it is certainly true when it comes to this single-tier cake. The word “love” is elegantly written in looping script across the entirety of the white cake. Adding a touch of playfulness and innocence, each “o” in “love” is replaced by a small pink heart. 

4. The Bride on the Swing

This cake is a breathtaking masterpiece. At the heart of the design, the bride is portrayed delicately seated on a swing, her silhouette outlined in striking black touches. Delicate blossoms are scattered, adorning the shape of a tree, intertwining with its branches, and further enhancing the enchanting atmosphere.

5. Tango

Adorned with a silhouette of a dancing couple gracefully poised atop the cake, this beautiful cake sets the stage for a captivating display of movement and romance. Vibrant red blooming roses inject bursts of colour around the cake.

6. Happy Ever After

This hand-painted cake is a masterpiece that narrates a beautiful love story in three tiers. Starting from the bottom tier, the cake portrays the couple as children, their innocence, and their joy. Moving to the middle tier, the scene unfolds into the magical moment of the proposal. Finally, the top tier depicts their wedding day.

7. United Hearts

The simple elegance of this white fondant cake is accentuated by its minimalist design. The cake symbolises love in its purest form, showing two hearts protruding from its surface. Also on top, delicate beating heart lines in shimmering gold adorn the cake, showing the liveliness of the union.

8. Love Is…

This cake is another simple choice, but a very pretty one. At its centre, a heartwarming sketch captures the essence of young love – a happy embrace between a couple. Completing the design, a vibrant red ribbon encircles the cake, tying everything together with a playful pop of colour.

9. “Will You Marry Me?”

Bathed in shades of light pink and cream, this cake exudes a funny, yet at the same time, romantic aura. At its centre, a whimsical doodle depicts the essence of a proposal in its most endearing form. The minimalist approach to the doodle adds to its charm.

10. Classic Ring Box

Dressed in black and white frosting, the square-shaped cake exudes a sense of classic beauty and simplicity. Atop, your engagement ring lies inside a box made entirely of cake. The initials of the couple are delicately written next to the ring box.

11. That Baking Girl

This Children’s Art Two-Tier Cake is a whimsical and heartwarming creation that brings the innocence and joy of childhood to life.

This cake is similar to the other Ring Box cake, but with a few more details. It is made in two tiers, the bottom tier being square shaped and the top one being round.

14. Blossom Love

This cake is another lovely work of art. It depicts a large cherry tree that protrudes out of the cake. The branches are purely ornamental, with beautiful cherry blossoms on them. The couple’s silhouette against a cream tinted background could be the depiction of a sunset of love in a blooming spring.

15. Chalkboard Cake

Dressed in a chic black frosting, the cake serves as a canvas reminiscent of a classic chalkboard. The simplicity of the black frosting allows the bold red flowers to take centre stage, creating a striking contrast that draws the eye. This unique and yet simple work of art is the perfect engagement cake for your special day. 

16. Love Letters

Shaped in a square form, this cake serves as a canvas for the meaningful words “love,” “friendship,” and “trust” scattered around its surface. The centrepiece atop the cake is a vibrant red heart standing upright. It creates a nice contrast with a purely white fondant around the surface of the cake.

17. Silhouette Proposal

Just like the other silhouette cakes, this one is also depicting the couple, this time, in a proposal scene. The cake is in two tiers, adorned with red and white heart shapes all over it. Two black and white ribbons are also there to separate the bottom tier from the above.

18. Black and White

This three-tier cake is another gem to behold. The bottom and top tiers are white fondant, while the middle one is a purely black cake. The bottom tier is adorned with creamy ruffles, and the top tier has painted details.

19. Ruffle Flower

The bottom tier is adorned with ruffle flowers. Contrasting with the intricate detail of the bottom tier, the top tier is kept elegantly simple.

To complete the look, ribbons encircle both tiers and the base, tying the design together with a touch of sophistication and charm.

20. Heart and Ruffle

This ruffle heart cake is a perfect choice for the engagement party. The top tier boasts a lemon sponge paired with creamy buttercream.

Underneath, the bottom tier features a classic combination of vanilla sponge and luscious strawberry buttercream.

21. Tweethearts

This engagement cake is another one of those that takes you back to childhood, this time perhaps with further symbolism. The cake shows two love birds singing letters of heart and love. Underneath them in the middle tier, the word “tweethearts” is written in an elegant font. Overall, the cake is pretty minimalistic in design but able to convey the deepest of emotions.

22. Golden Cake

This three-tier golden cake could be used for various occasions, like weddings and anniversaries. It also makes a lovely engagement cake, especially if you are holding a large party. 

23. Pink Cake

Different tiers of cake are adorned in two different shades of pink and glistering lines around the cakes. The small and large diamond shapes accentuate the beauty of this work of art. Each tier looks like a gift box, ready to be opened.

24. “She Said Yes”

This Ring Box Cake is a dazzling and celebratory creation that captures the joyous moment of a proposal in delicious detail. Each tier of the cake is expertly crafted in the shape of a ring box, with shiny lines and bevelled edges adding to the illusion of luxury and sophistication. At the centre of the design, the words “She Said Yes” are elegantly written in a classic font, rendered in shiny fondant.

25. White Cake

This white cake has a unique, minimalistic, and rather rustic look. It is adorned with real flowers on top and around different tiers. The couple’s initials are also meticulously positioned around the cake. 

26. Blue Cake

This cake is pretty similar to the white cake in look and design. It, however, uses different shades of blue for its fondant. An elegant white flower is the only piece of ornament decorating the cake. This engagement cake is perfect for couples who adore simplicity.

27. Glamorous Pink Cake

Another lovely and lavish cake is this three-tier pink cake. The surface of the cake is adorned with a detailed ornamental pattern, crafted to evoke a sense of elegance and beauty. The palette of pink is rich and varied, with different shades and tones blending seamlessly together.

28. Naked Cake

If you love a cake with no frosting, then this is one of the best choices for your engagement. However, don’t imagine this cake without any decorations. A spectacular bouquet of colourful flowers adorns the top of the cake, creating a great contrast with the simple cake layers beneath it.

29. Sea Green Cake

The cake’s sea green hue serves as a serene backdrop, reminiscent of the calm waters of the sea. Contrasting against this soothing backdrop, the navy blue base and decorations add depth and drama to the design.

30. Semi-Naked Cake

The semi-naked frosting technique allows the natural texture and colour of the cake layers to peek through, creating a charmingly rustic appearance. Adorning the tiers are real flower decorations, adding a touch of vibrant colour and organic charm to the cake.
