In this post, we’ll share some of the latest summer wedding cake trends and ideas that will inspire you and make your special day even more memorable.
Embrace The Surroundings
Draw inspiration from your tropical venue’s foliage for your big-day confection’s color palette. Earth & Sugar used this location’s bright bougainvillea and green palm leaves as the muses for this multi-hued brushstroke-patterned cake.
Perfect for a summer wedding, this soft-colored cake is almost too pretty to eat. And though the colors might be muted, they’ll certainly pack a punch when used for sugar flowers, fresh blooms, patterned fondant, painted buttercream, and the myriad methods employed by cake masters in the sweet treats that follow.
