Celebrate your spring wedding with a beautiful cake! The season lends itself to many beautiful cake designs for weddings, each lovelier than the last. These are some of the prettiest spring wedding cake ideas.
Cherry Blossoms. Few things are more emblematic of the arrival of spring than spectacular flowering branches. A pink cherry blossom wedding cake is gorgeous for any spring wedding, whether your style is traditional or contemporary. The graceful lines of the dark brown branches and delicate pink blossoms look elegant flowing down the tiers of a cake. To give the cake a more modern appeal, opt for a minimalist design with a single flowering branch over a background of smooth fondant. A more romantic version of a cherry blossom cake can be created by using a softer buttercream frosting and adding additional blossoms to the top of the cake and along the base of each tier.
Birds. A delightful idea for a spring wedding cake is one with a bird motif. There are several great approaches one can take with this theme. A flat scene with bird and forest silhouettes can be wrapped around the cake for a very unique design. If you are planning a wedding with a lot of handcrafted details, from the bridal jewelry to the invitations, a handmade twig nest with a pair of wooden birds as the cake topper would be a terrific take on the bird motif. A couple could also pick a specific bird to feature on their wedding cake, such as the bluebird, which represents happiness.
Faberge Eggs. If your wedding is close to the Easter season, a fabulous idea for a wedding cake is to decorate it to look like a Faberge egg. Each Faberge egg was like a tiny beautiful world in miniature; a great way to interpret this concept for a wedding cake is to have a series of tiny scenes painted around the tiers of the cake. Each little picture could be inside an oval frame of frosting, as if one were peeking inside a Faberge egg. It would be especially pretty to show a single variety of spring flower inside each egg shape, or let your imagination run wild with fanciful scenes of your choosing.
Pastels. For the bride who loves all things pretty and feminine, a mixed pastel wedding cake would be ideal for a spring wedding. Each tier can be frosted in a different pastel color, such as lemon yellow, rose pink, baby blue, spring green, lilac, and apricot. To tie the different colors together, use a unifying accent around the base of each tier. It could be as simple as a white grosgrain ribbon, or something more elaborate. White frosting bows would be very sweet at the base of each tier for “girly girl” brides. If you are planning to wear pearl bridal jewelry, you could ask your baker to adorn each tier with a row of frosting “pearls”. The effect will be nothing short of delightful – pure spring!
Spring is a time of rebirth and beauty – no wonder it is such a popular season for weddings. It is a lot of fun to let the wonders of the spring season inspire your wedding, especially when it comes to the wedding cake. With so many lovely options for spring wedding cakes, the hardest part might just be narrowing it down to one favorite theme!
