Four summer wedding cakes
02 Jun 2016
From dainty treats to statement confections, your wedding cake should reflect your taste, style and character as a couple. Cakes of Paradise detail four of their favourite wedding cakes for a summertime ceremony.
Rein in the joys of summer and find the perfect cake for your summer wedding with these four edible delights by Cakes of Paradise.
1. Two tier
Simplicity is key to a two tier cake which offers a fuss-free, minimalist approach. Inject a touch of summer with a floral focal point, such as these sugar rose arrangements. Warming yellows and pastel pinks provide the perfect complement to pops of purples and deep green foliage. Straightforward touches to the tiers, such as iced dots and a ribbon at the base add interest without detracting from the centrepiece.
2. Four tier
Directed by your colour theme, a four tier cake caters to large wedding parties and couples who want to make a statement. Three dimensional bows, butterflies and an abundant array of flora, coupled with ribbon finishes and metallic additions, all unite to create a vision that tastes just as good as it looks.
3. Five tier
Supersize your cake and create a talking point that will be remembered for years to come. Think like A Midsummer Night’s Dream and opt for dusky pinks and pastel purples in your colour palette. The size offers the biggest statement, so keep decoration simple and subtle like these finishing flourishes of lace appliqué and satin ribbon.
If you would rather choose individual dessert options to fulfil the wedding cake tradition, cupcakes are a fun and contemporary alternative. Presenting an intricate attention to detail - from the floral features to the patterned casing, cupcakes deliver a garden-party inspired spread for sweet toothed guests.
