Seasonal Wedding Cakes
No matter what season your wedding is going to be in, there are many options available. Bakeries have become artists in the realm of cake decorating and they are offering a wide assortment of designs. They are very creative people and can design just about any idea that you may have. So, whether your wedding is in the middle of December or July you will find a wedding cake design that will suit your season.
Winter weddings are becoming more popular as the winter is typically a time of giving and sharing with family and friends. A winter wedding is an excellent way to get your friends and family together for a joyous occasion. If you are having a winter wedding get creative and incorporate the various aspects of winter into your wedding. Cakes have been made in the form of a beautiful white ski slope with white pine trees and a snowboarding bride and groom figurine on top. Pinecones glistening in gold accents make beautiful decorations for a winter cake. Incorporated with a few sugar pine needles and you have a beautiful winter cake. If you like the traditional white on white wedding cake consider sprucing up the sugar snowflakes and silver sparkles. Winter cakes are very festive and your guests will be awed by your winter design.
Autumn is season of reds, oranges, yellows and browns. Together these colours spell fall. If you are having an autumn wedding get creative with these fall colours. Consider a carrot cake or pumpkin spice cake with a white chocolate icing. Decorate a tiered cake with fondant fruit such as apples and pears. You can even incorporate festive pumpkins in your design. Incorporate the pumpkins in the wedding by turning them into beautiful autumn pumpkin flour arrangements.
Spring is a time for beautiful pastel colours and flowers. Pick your favourite colours and incorporate them in their pastel hues for a truly beautiful spring cake. Consider cute daisies on a background of light green with royal icing beading. Or, perhaps you would like a cupcake tower with beautiful light pink roses on every cupcake. Incorporate a beautiful silver tray for display and a variety of greenery to make the cupcakes their own floral arrangement. Not only is this a cute design but very affordable as well.
In the summer, brides and grooms can do whatever they want. However, it is advised that you stay away from whipped cream and buttercream icings unless the reception is held in a refrigerated hall. These icings tend to melt very easily. Consider beautiful floral arrangements and creative colours on your cake. Chocolate dipped strawberries are also very popular and extra refreshing on a hot summer day or night.
