If your planning a Spring or Summer wedding, than without a doubt your wedding cake should coordinate flawlessly with that season. Not sure how to make a wedding cake more Spring or Summery? Read on, we’ve got all the details to give your cake some flair.
Spring and Summer flavors
When you think of foods that grow in the Spring, what comes to mind? Berries. So when choosing a cake flavor try to incorporate all those delicious berries into it. Think fresh strawberry puree or delicious lemon cake with blackberry filling. If you want to keep your cake chocolate but aren’t sure how to incorporate a cake flavor with chocolate, think cherry ganache filling.
Spring and Summer colors
Seasonal colors must be taken into consideration when designing your cake. Need inspirations? Just look at the world around you. You will see beautiful green and pinks, purples, oranges and yellows all from the newly bloomed trees. Bright blue skies with preppy white clouds slowly drifting by. Don’t be afraid to add wedding cake accessories in the form of butterflies or little birds. All of this accents will give your wedding cake design a perfect spring time look.
Flowers make beautiful wedding cake accessories, so be sure to pick some nice Spring and Summer blooms. Be sure to pick spring blooms for your bouquet and then have the wedding cake tiers adorned in matching flowers. If you don’t have the option of fresh flowers, ask your baker to create sugar versions of your wedding flowers. Other options include having your baker paint beautiful florals onto your wedding cake tiers or if you like a more modern look, try having just a few large sugar peonies added to the cake design.
Another great way to create wedding cake accessories is to serve some sort of side that compliments, or goes with your cake. Even if you’ve chosen a not so Spring time feel cake, you can still add a little bit of Spring and Summer by serving your cake a la mode with gourmet lavender ice cream on the side or keep it simple by serving chocolate dipped strawberries. Want to stay away from the chocolate? Then consider just serving an assortment of berries with a dollop of fresh cream, yum! Adding these sides is a sure way to create an overall awesome cake design.
