Non-traditional wedding cakes are a great way for couples to make a personalized statement about their love that everyone is sure to remember. If you have a connection to the Queen City, whether you were born in Buffalo, are a transplant, or met your soulmate here, a Buffalo-themed wedding cake might be the perfect choice for your big day.

Buffalo-Themed Wedding Cake Inspiration

Buffalo, NY is a special city. There’s inspiration for your wedding cake in every corner, neighborhood, and period in history.

Buffalo Sports

In many ways, Buffalo’s identity and spirit are intertwined with our local sports teams. Through the wins and losses, we love our Bills and Sabres all the same. That unrelenting love can be incorporated into your wedding cake with the team logo, field or rink, and colors as inspiration. Many couples opt for a Zubaz-patterned tier!

Buffalo Skyline

Our city skyline includes several iconic landmarks, including City Hall, the Peace Bridge, Key Bank Center, Seneca One, and the grain elevators of the past. Dedicating a tier of your wedding cake to Buffalo’s skyline using edible images, fondant cutouts, or piped designs is a wonderful way to bring some of the city’s best sights to life on your wedding day.

Niagara Falls

We Buffalonians are lucky to have one of the world’s natural wonders right in our backyard. It’s a special place for many, as its untamed beauty leaves visitors in awe. If the Falls are special to you, consider adding a tier dedicated to cascading waters made of fondant, piped frosting, or airbrushed effects.

Buffalo Architecture

Buffalo is known for its architectural marvels, including the downtown Art Deco buildings and the marvel that is Frank Lloyd Wright’s Martin House complex. A wedding cake paying homage to these structures with symmetrical, geometric flair makes for an absolute showstopper.

Buffalo-Themed Cake Topper

If you don’t want to have your entire wedding cake dedicated to Buffalo but still want to give a nod to the city, a Buffalo-themed topper is the way to go. The silhouette of a buffalo makes for a simple topper that would be at home on even the most minimalist wedding cake.

Buffalo-Themed Flavors

Your love of Buffalo can be baked right into your wedding cake. Of course, we’re not saying you should have a chicken wing or beef on weck-flavored cake, but some flavors reminiscent of the city would work well in your dessert.


Loganberry may have started across the border in Canada, but it’s been a Buffalo staple for just as long. Since the flavor tastes like a cross between blackberries and raspberries, consider adding a berry-based filling between cake layers.

Cherry & Almond

Come spring, Buffalo awakens from winter and blooms with beautiful cherry blossoms. If you’re having a spring wedding or just have a soft spot for this time of year, an almond-flavored cake with a cherry filling is a nice option.
