Wedding Cake with Yellow Roses

yellow sage cake

As I walked a very long trail at the park today I was surrounded by thousands of blooming trees, plants, flowers, and probably some weeds too.

It’s been sunny and a little warm and combined with the rain earlier in the week everything is blooming!

Sure this means a lot of pollen but it also means I’m dreaming about wedding cakes with gorgeous flowers. Yes, I do dream about wedding cakes. Don’t you?

This lovely cake is practically perfect in every way! It has a nice vintage vibe thanks to the lace embellishment on both tiers. And the yellow roses and sage atop the cake give it that perfect spring feel.

I can see this cake fitting in perfectly at a small, outdoor springtime wedding. And if that wedding has a vintage theme…well that’s even better!

Rainbow Wedding Cake

rainbow cake

I saw a news report this week about a rare quadruple rainbow that was spotted over New York State. As a big fan of rainbows I thought that would be pretty cool to see.

And then I found this rainbow dot wedding cake and my week was made!

I love this wedding cake so very much. It’s fun and whimsical and pretty much screams “spring!” in a refined way, of course.

The rainbow on the cake is formed by “dots” of icing – starting with white at the top and going through all the colors of the rainbow including pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.

You’re guaranteed an awesome wedding reception with this cake!

Ocean Inspired Wedding Cake

ocean cake

As we slowly inch closer and closer to summer it means we’re getting that much closer to beach season too.

And that means beach weddings and wedding cakes the remind us of the beach.

Like today’s wedding cake. It’s a subtle reminder of the things we love most about the beach – the surf and the sand.

The two-tiered cake features fondant icing that was hand-painted with water colors to mimic the blues of the ocean. I’m also loving the basket weave embellishment at the bottom of the cake.

This cake would be lovely at your beach wedding or at your beach themed wedding, if you happen to be having your nuptials nowhere near the water.

Wedding Cake with Sugar Flowers

Spring is in the air which means it is the perfect time to start sharing gorgeous spring-inspired wedding cakes.

Today’s cake is lovely and spring-y and adorned with flower petals. Sugar flower petals to be exact.

And we all know sugar flowers are better than real flowers because you can eat them.

This three-tier white cake is anything but boring with these gumpaste petals giving just the slightest hint of color as they are each painted with light pink and green.

Your guests will ooh and aah over this cake and it’s the perfect floral cake for your spring or summer wedding.

No need for a cake topper here – the gumpaste petals are all the accents you need.

Spring Wedding Cake

white cake1

It’s the first day of April and spring is in the air and that’s no joke!

As I look outside I’m spying buds on the trees and tulips popping out of the ground and I’m convinced that the warmer weather is here to stay.

Which means I just had to find a gorgeous wedding cake today with springtime flowers!

This cake is that perfect springtime confection.

I love the square tier mixed with the round tiers. It gives that cake an elegant and glamorous feel. And the simplicity of the floral design is just perfect.

The pink and green flowers with that touch of orange is all the spring is just perfection. A simple cake topper – maybe a single fresh flower that matches the others – would be ideal.

Strawberry Wedding Cake

strawberry naked cake

One of my favorite summertime fruits is the strawberry! They’re sweet and perfect and can be used in so many ways, even on a wedding cake!

I love strawberry shortcake and today’s naked wedding cake reminds of that sweet treat.

This wedding cake was created with pound cake (of course!) and layers of mascarpone cream and strawberries. I think it might be my new favorite spring or summer wedding cake.

Imagine how perfect this cake would be at your late spring or early summer wedding – especially if you just happen to be planning an outdoor reception!

This is a “naked” wedding cake trend I would definitely like to see at a summer wedding!

White Wedding Cake with Pink Flowers

When I’m looking for wedding cakes to share with you I’m always searching for that one cake that stops me in mid-scroll.

That cake that wows me from my computer screen. And today that cake is this one with the pretty pink flowers.

As we inch closer and closer to spring and the much-anticipated blooming of springtime I flowers I just had to find a cake that had lovely blooms as part of the decorating.

I love this cake for its simplicity and elegance.

And I love it because it would look amazing at a springtime wedding, even if pink wasn’t one of “your colors.”

The three-tiered cake is iced with ivory frosting, which gives it a bit of a modern vibe – no standard white icing here. And the soft pink peonies are so pretty and elegant.

It’s simply perfect.

Elegant White Cake with Fresh Flowers

cake and flowers

It’s March! So that means spring MUST be just around the corner, right?

Well I’m convinced that the snow has to end soon so I’m showcasing spring wedding cakes today. And this all-white cake with cascading fresh flowers is perfect for a spring wedding!

The wedding cake itself is a classic and elegant three-tier white fondant cake. On its own, the cake would be pretty but boring. But when you add a splash of bright colors with fresh flowers it changes everything!

And while you could use big, bold flowers on this cake I really love the look of the small flowers. It gives the cake an air of elegance that big flowers wouldn’t.

The flowers here are fuchsias and mini orchids but mini roses would be gorgeous too!

Chocolate Wedding Cake

If there’s one non-traditional wedding cake that I’ll always be a fan of it’s the chocolate wedding cake.

Everyone is expecting a cake with white icing, even if the cake inside is a variety of flavors. So why not wow your guests and surprise them with a chocolate frosted cake?

The cake flavors could vary – chocolate, marble, yellow – but to see a wedding cake frosted with gloriously delicious chocolate icing? That would be incredible!

This kind of cake would work best in the fall and winter – chocolate cake just doesn’t seem like a summer kind of cake.

And what I love most about chocolate cakes – aside from the frosting – is that they look stunning when adorned with fresh flowers. My favorites are dark red or dark pink flowers. It just makes the whole cake pop!

Blue and White Wedding Cake

blue and white cake

Since it seems as though winter is never going to end here in the Midwest, I find myself daydreaming about the beach nearly every day.

Which brings me to today’s cake.

This three-tier creation reminds me of my favorite beach – with white sand and beautiful blue water.

It’s quite lovely.

I love the dramatic navy blue of the bottom tier and how it fades into a seascape inspired second tier of blues and greens, finally ending in the white top tier.

The addition of the white roses on the gold background is the perfect amount of dramatic effect.

This cake would be gorgeous any time of year, but it would be stunning at a beach wedding.
