Decorating with Flowers on Spring Wedding Cakes
‘Spring cakes = flowers.’ Pretty obvious, you would think! But as these fabulous confections prove, the possibilities for floral decorations can be as versatile and creative as you wish.
How many flowers?
See the varied—and lovely—effects of topping your cake with a sweet nosegay of mixed blooms (1, 10), scattering tiny daisies on each tier (2), having a graceful floral vine (5), or making a statement with a single large peony (3).
Fresh, fondant, or fabric?
Honestly, the florals on these cakes are so awesome, we’re still guessing which ones are real and which are faux! The spring season seems to call for fresh flowers. [Note: See our suggested links for using fresh flowers, at the end of this post.] But the choice is yours. You can go for fondant, sugar paste, silk, or even paper!
Monochromatic, colorful, or pastels?
An all-white creation looks so dainty and pristine (2, 5, 9). But you can also opt for non-floral colors like mint green (3) or eye-catching coral (4) to set off the flowers. And of course, delicate pink (1), peach (6), and pastels (10) are always spring favorites.
An element of surprise?
Your cake can be more than just a floral display, though. You can even have a ‘cheese wheel cake’ (7) decked out in roses. The cake itself can be one blooming flower (8). Or you can add a romantic quote in edible gold calligraphy (9)!
Thinking of using fresh flowers on your cake? It’s possible that neither your cake supplier nor your florist are knowledgeable about this. So we strongly recommend that you read up on links like these:
