Who doesn’t love lavender? A calming color teeming with possibilities for a summer wedding with a lavender motif! Whether as a color to decorate with, fresh blooms for the bridal party, or as fragrant buds for the wedding toss, lavender is a huge favorite among couples planning their Big Day. But there are lavender-inspired sweet treats, too! Here are 3 of the most delectable ways to bring this delightful hue to your wedding desserts and favors.
How charming is this 2-layered cake (1) covered with Swiss meringue buttercream frosting and trimmed with lavender-tinted sugar flowers! It’s actually from a baby shower post on Project Nursery by regular contributor, Paula of Frog Prince Paperie, but would be just lovely on a wedding dessert table as well!
Violets can double as ‘lavender,’ too. We discovered this via Every Cake You Bake, which presents this luscious sponge cake (2) with a filling of whipped cream and jam made from the petals of violets between layers! And those are actual violets as a finishing touch.
This time in cake pop form (3)! Lavender buds (which you can assure your guests are perfectly edible) were used to dust these tempting treats from Cakewalk Desserts, featured on Wedding Chicks. These would be perfect for a rustic wedding with a chic spin!
