Spring Wedding Cakes That Are Almost Too Pretty to Eat
When it comes to designing your wedding cake, it never hurts to look to the season for inspiration. This helps if you're hoping to decorate your confection with flowers, as you'll probably want to know what's fresh and readily-available. It's also useful when picking the color scheme, if you want to highlight your wedding date through details like your dessert. You can even choose to serve timely flavors, like something floral for spring.
Because spring's such a beautiful time to wed, we've seen tons of seasonal cakes at real weddings taking place in March, April, May, and early June. Despite what you may think, they aren't all decked out in peonies and pastels. Common spring-inspired motifs can certainly make their way into your dessert, but brides and grooms are more than welcome to go a more creative route, too. Whether that means swapping out a white confection for colorful one, using less-popular springtime symbols, or covering your cake in a bounty of fresh flowers, the options are as varied as the season's unpredictable weather.
If you're tying the knot during this special time of year and want to embrace all that it has to offer, infuse spring into your wedding cake. For ideas, look no further than the following treats, which were served at springtime celebrations and nodded to the season in a range of pretty and unique ways. Like the loveliest sun shower or the lushest blooming garden, these desserts were stunning.
