Mexican Wedding Cakes are a great to have at your Mexican themed or Fiesta themed wedding. They are also wonderful to pay homage to your Mexican heritage at your wedding.
But, the first thing you should think of is if you want it as the main traditional cake on display for all of your guests to ooh and aah at, or if you would rather have a smaller, cuter cake as your "groom's cake".
If you do choose it as your main cake, you should first decide on how big it should be (depending on the size of your guest list) and what shape you would like it to be.
You also have to choose if you want to keep it an Elegant Wedding Cake or if you want to go casual/whimsical.
Even if you decide to go with a more traditional and elegant for your main wedding cake, you could always have a more fun and casual cake for your groom's cake or even at your bridal shower.
If you are choosing to go with a more elegant, traditional wedding cake, be sure to include bright colors of turquoise, blues, terracotta, yellows, greens, pinks, purples and reds.
Incorporating flowers in your cake, whether they be real or made of tissue paper will also add some elegance to your Mexican Wedding Cake.
And don't forget that some of the most beautiful tiles come from Mexico and are easily adaptable on a wedding cake!
Now, if you are going whimsical, casual or for a groom's cake, boy can you have fun (after all, it is a party!).
Use those same colors as mentioned above, but then add in iconic "Mexican" items such as sombreros, chilli peppers, margaritas, cacti, tacos, etc.
When you approach your professional baker, or a friend, just pass your vision on to him/her as to how you would like your wedding cake to look like.
Whether you want to go all out or just very softly incorporate some Mexican elements into your cake, it's your choice.
Here are some of the cakes I found on a great site called Cake Central.

Examples of Mexican Wedding Cakes:
This lovely two tiered cake was made with those brilliant colors mentioned above.
Some brightly colored flowers were also placed on the cake to add some flair. I just love the beautiful patterns airbrushed onto the cake.
I love how the details on the sides of the cake looks like beading.
Pastel peach colored with edible succulents and hand-cut fondant papel picado (traditionally made of tissue paper and used in Mexican celebrations).
The bride wanted to use the Mexican holiday "Day of the dead" as the theme.
The holiday honours those who have passed on- her father died before the wedding and it was her way of remembering him.
All the little figures are skeltons, but they are dressed as if they were living.
This cute cake features cacti, sombreros, chili peppers, Tostitos along with Mexico's national colors.
The couple selected a tile pattern and then was recreated in fondant using their wedding colors of purple and lime green.
All buttercream. White chocolate taco shell, with chocolate cake crumbles for meat, colored coconut for lettuce and cheese, and buttercream for the sour cream
It's dark chocolate cake with ancho and cayenne pepper bittersweet chocolate ganache filling on the bottom and butter cake with dulce de leche IMBC.
