8 Great Recipes for a DIY Spring Wedding Cake
As you can see, a spring-inspired cake need not be all flowery (although we’re reserving some gorgeous floral-decorated finds for another Spring Wedding Cakes post!). Many of the examples above feature luscious fresh fruits or fruit flavors, others include icons of the season, while a couple have pretty blooms as embellishments.
So whether you stick to these actual recipes or not, here are key elements we suggest for capturing that spring spirit in your DIY wedding cake:
Fruits and Berries
For vibrant color and zesty flavor, think actual strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries; fresh grapes, slices of kiwi, shavings of lemon or lime peel [Cakes 1, 2, 8]. Or you can have fruit flavorings in the cake itself or in the frosting [Cakes 5, 6].
Birds, Nests, and Eggs
For pure spring charm, take inspiration from symbols of the season like darling little bluebirds [Cake 3] or speckled eggs in tiny nests [Cake 7]. Or perhaps dainty butterflies or baby woodland animals as well.
Flowers, Of Course!
Spring wouldn’t be spring without flowers. So take your pick from among all the lovely blossoms available—whether fresh ones to adorn a simple white confection; or blooms made from fondant or sugar paste, silk or velvet [Cake 4].
