Your Wedding Cake Guide for the Spring

Articles, Food & Drink

Spring is a time that represents fresh colors, renewal and birth. It’s also a popular time to throw your perfect Spring wedding. 2011 is all about fresh palettes and colors. Taking cue from this year’s fashion week here are a few colors, style, and filling ideas for your wedding cake.

Colours: Cake colors making the biggest comeback this year are tiffany blue, nude pink and white. A white cake is classy and elegant. With a basic, white cake you can go with add-ons like a white rose — always a nice touch to a simple, lace cake that could potentially go with the bride’s dress.

If you want to branch out, going with nude pink or coral pink is a great idea for South Asian brides because they fit nicely with the usual red color theme.  If the color theme for one of your occasions is from the blue family, you can easily go with the tiffany blue colored cake, which is really in this Spring.

For a smaller wedding it is perfectly okay to go for a two-tier cake.

Fillings: Since Spring offers you the choice of fresh berries and fruits, it is great idea to take advantage of the season and make your cake light and fruit-filled. If you are a chocoholic, you could still keep a Spring theme by choosing a strawberry or raspberry filling. Think light and airy for your cake.

Add-ons: An iris makes a great add-on for your cake. It adds an instant punch without being over the top. You can also try a coral pink rose instead.
