Creating Your Perfect Summer Wedding Cake

Your summer wedding cake is potentially one of the most important parts of your wedding day, so you don’t want to risk getting it wrong.

There are plenty of things to consider, and you’re definitely going to want to start planning as soon as possible to give you lots of flexibility.

Remember, creating the perfect wedding cake not only takes time to design, it takes time to bake and decorate, so you really need to get your ideas formulated nice and early.

Hopefully we can give you some helpful tips to make your cake stand out from the crowd; you can either use them as inspiration, or just use them directly when designing your cake.

In terms of picking a flavour, you’re going to want to choose something that reflects the seasonal ingredients that you have at your disposal. For example, a good idea would be to go with something that has plenty of summer fruits, like raspberry and strawberry. Obviously, it’s difficult to incorporate these flavours into a traditional wedding cake, so you’re going to have to decide whether you want a more contemporary cake or something traditional.

One tip would be to use a raspberry puree as the filling for your cake instead of the usual buttercream, which would surprise your guests and give you all a great taste of summer.

Of course, other flavours like chocolate are available, and if you’re desperate to use chocolate then it’s a good idea to incorporate some summer flavours like cherry or other berries into the cake. _________________________________________________________________


In terms of color, the possibilities are almost endless. It’s a good idea to go for accented colors instead of just using one bold colour throughout the design. You should probably base the design on a few main colors such as navy, white, and red, and then incorporate more summer colors like pink, yellow, and green, into the cake later on in the process.

In terms of trimming, try to use colors that are brighter than the other colors used on the cake, with gold or perhaps ivory being used to accentuate the edges.

You may also want to use flowers to help give your summer wedding cake some more “pop”. You can actually get sugar versions of the same flowers you are using for decoration made by a bakery, and these can really make the cake stand out. You can have the cake designed with flowers decorating it, or incorporated more deeply into it, for example painted on.

These tips should help make your summer wedding cake stand out. our summer wedding cake stand out is not an easy design process, but you should enjoy it anyway. Most people struggle when choosing their perfect cake, but once they have decided on the theme of the wedding and which colors they can use, it’s a fairly simple process with a small amount of creativity needed.
