Designing And Creating Beach Theme Wedding Cakes
Beach theme wedding cakes differ greatly from their more traditional counterparts, that is, if you want them to.
The great thing about a wedding cake at a beach theme wedding is that you can’t really go wrong, unless you just don’t bother with a cake at all!
Beach weddings are generally much more informal affairs than the standard church wedding, and so you don’t have to worry too much about the traditional tiered wedding cake that most people have come to expect. That being said, you’re going to want a cake that is both stylish and sophisticated, whilst being unique and those can be three very tough qualities to fulfil, so it’s time to start planning right now!
The internet is probably one of your best friends when it comes to sorting out your cake. A quick look on your favourite search engine will yield thousands of results giving you different design ideas, recipes (if you want to go homemade), and other inspiration.
The more searching you do, the more ideas you’re going to have when it comes down to actually creating the brief for your cake.
When you’re searching on the internet, make sure you are making notes and bookmarking pictures or articles that you find interesting – you may regret it later on if you end up forgetting!
Whilst you’re still probably going to want to go with a tiered design for the cake, it’s time to start thinking about the decoration and styling that you want on the exterior and this will ultimately come down to the theme of your wedding.
For example, if you’re going for a Caribbean themed wedding, you’re going to want vibrant colours and an exciting cake decoration. However, if you’re going for a more oceanic theme, you’re going to want subtle colours that offer warmth and calm.
Try to pick out the primary colours from your theme and start thinking about what would work well with your cake.
At this point, it’s probably a good time to start talking to professional cake designers and the people who are actually going to be making your cake. They will be able to offer you advice on what works and doesn’t work when it comes to building beach theme wedding cakes (which aren’t normally as obvious as you might think!). These people will be able to tell you what design features are feasible and also how much it’s going to cost you to have your cake made.
Overall, creating a beach themed wedding cake is a long process, and it’s not something you’re going to be able to finish in a matter of minutes. Start the planning process early, and remember that, because of the nature of the wedding, you have almost unlimited possibilities.
You can be as creative (or as boring!) as you wish, so bring your friends together and try to come up with truly unique things that you can do with your wedding cake. This might be some crazy beach wedding cake topper that you fell in love with on the internet, or it might just be a unique combination of colors.
Beach theme wedding cakes are incredibly fun to create and design; no matter how much time you spend on them, you probably won’t find it to be too much of a hassle.
Choose something that suits your theme and the tone of your wedding, and then just add some personal touches that will make it memorable for everyone there. If you ever feel like you’re running out inspiration, just spend some more time searching around or talking to a local professional who will be able to point you in the right direction.
With such a wide variety of different things to choose from when creating beach theme wedding cakes, it’s tempting to just pick the first design that you come up with. The best thing you can do is wait a few days and make a decision then. You may find that the design you initially loved, you now hate after seeing it a few times. On the other hand, if you still love it, then you know you’re going to love it when you get married.
