War prompts us more than ever to turn to our roots and sym­bols of nation­al iden­ti­ty. This applies not only to lit­er­a­ture, clothes and the men­tion of tra­di­tions — curios­i­ty about orig­i­nal­i­ty is also man­i­fest­ed in unex­pect­ed lit­tle things, such ascakes! Chan­fash­ion pre­pared a pho­to selec­tion ofcake designs (and not only) based on Ukrain­ian motifs to inspire you 🙂

National chic

Ukrain­ian cul­tur­al her­itage is real­ly rich in authen­tic pat­terns, embroi­deries and col­or schemes with hid­den sym­bol­ic mean­ing. This will be a great basis for cre­at­ing a unique dessert for such an impor­tant day! Here are some incred­i­ble options for dec­o­rat­ing­cakes inspired by unique tra­di­tion­al Ukrain­ian motifs.

Bright sunflowers

One of the impor­tant Ukrain­ian sym­bols is the sun­flower — not only beau­ti­ful, bright and cheer­ful, but also def­i­nite­ly use­ful. There are many options for how to use the sym­bol of the sun and fer­til­i­ty in a cake — this includes dec­o­rat­ing a neu­tral base with real live flow­ers, and imi­tat­ing paint­ing with oil paints, which will make the dessert a work of art. For a larg­er vol­ume, mas­tic decor is suit­able, and the ide­al col­or com­bi­na­tion, of course, remains the yel­low-blue range.

Cake designs with poppies

We con­tin­ue the theme of icon­ic Ukrain­ian flow­ers with red pop­pies. These plants will per­fect­ly com­ple­ment both the min­i­mal­is­tic white design of the cake and the real cream land­scape of the native deer.

An ear of wheat

Con­clud­ing the floris­tic part ofcake dec­o­ra­tion ideas, we can­not ignore wheat. Undoubt­ed­ly, it is a very impor­tant plant for Ukrain­ian cul­ture, it is not for noth­ing that half of the flag was allo­cat­ed to it 🙂 Wheat can dec­o­rate the cake itself as a pat­tern or an addi­tion­al accent ele­ment, and become part of the design of the stand for the­cake.

Patriotic scale

The eas­i­est way to hon­or Ukrain­ian sym­bols in acake is to use a yel­low-blue col­or scheme in its dec­o­ra­tion. More­over, the use of cer­tain col­ors does not lim­it you styl­is­ti­cal­ly at all — you can use them to dec­o­rate both min­i­mal­ist cakes and real works of art in the art deco style, com­plex geo­met­ric designs, decor with imi­ta­tion of crys­tal and in gen­er­al any oth­er options for the appear­ance of the dessert. An inter­est­ing idea would be to make col­ored cakes if you want to keep the cake neu­tral in col­or or one col­or.

Small sweets

Let’s not for­get about the can­dy bar! Small desserts, such as mac­a­roons, cook­ies or gin­ger­bread, can also be made in the col­ors of the Ukrain­ian flag or sup­ple­ment­ed with patri­ot­ic inscrip­tions. Small sweets are suit­able not only for a can­dy bar, but also as bon­bon­nieres — small gifts forguests.

Bento cakes for a holiday for two

Due to the fact that many cou­ples now refuse lav­ish cel­e­bra­tions and choose a hol­i­day for two or a small cham­ber wed­ding, ben­to cakes will be a great solu­tion. This is a small dessert of up to 500 g, which can be eat­en togeth­er with­out any prob­lems 🙂 Or order sev­er­al such cakes of dif­fer­ent fla­vors and treat them to your loved ones. Usu­al­ly, ben­to is made with a sim­ple dec­o­ra­tion: it can be a fun­ny or sym­bol­ic inscrip­tion for you, or a sim­ple draw­ing.

Traditional cakes

For a long time, korovai occu­pied a very impor­tant place in the­cer­e­monies of Ukraini­ans, and even now many cou­ples do not for­get about it. Espe­cial­ly since, in addi­tion to their sym­bol­ic mean­ing, cows can be a real incred­i­ble dec­o­ra­tion of thetable! Just look at the decor options offered by mod­ern crafts­men.
