Yellow Wedding Cakes

Lemon Cake

Kirsten Strecker

Royal-icing latticework gives this grand cake a summery feel, but the year-round appeal of citrus fruit makes it right for any season. The lemons are actually tinted white chocolate, the blossoms gum paste, and the leaves are white fondant.

Meyer Lemon Cake


This confection is composed of layers of Meyer lemon-flavored cake, lemon curd, and coconut Swiss-meringue buttercream. Curls of fresh coconut and candied lemon peel form the ruffled flounces on the tiers. The finishing touch: a pair of glittering sugared Meyer lemons with white-chocolate leaves.

Sweet Daisy Cake


Sugar-paste daisies drift down a fondant-covered cake. The choice of daisies, a decidedly old-fashioned flower, gives the simple, modern design a retro appeal. The cake's petite form gains presence when displayed on a footed cake stand.

A sunny canopy parts to reveal a three-tiered, fondant-covered cake. It is finished with an initial made of hand-painted, sugar-paste flowers, a sweet topper for a garden wedding.

Breakfast at Tiffany's


The piece de resistance: a wedding cake by Sylvia Weinstock. Each of its four octagonal tiers is iced with rich buttercream and features an embroidered sugar band with piped flowers. It all coordinates beautifully with the incredibly lifelike sugar-flower bouquets that surround the bottom and crown the cake, each hand-molded by Weinstock.

Bright Lemon Cake


Just try to resist this delightful cake enhanced by a zesty lemon curd filling. Natural and yellow buttercream were piped from the same bag to create the ombre latticework. A topper of silk flowers and millinery lemons makes this perfect for a casual garden wedding.
