Many couples who are arranging their wedding are keen to keep things as seasonal as possible when it comes to the decor, the flowers, the food, and even their wedding cakes. Having a seasonal wedding cake means that you can really get a theme going for your wedding.
A cake that fits in with the season in which you are getting married will look great on the table, particularly if your decor and flowers are also seasonal. You can make everything about your cake seasonal, from the colors that you decide upon to the ingredients that you use.
Spring weddings: Pinks, pastel colors, loads of pretty ribbon, and floral decorations make a great choice for a spring wedding cake. If you want something light and airy to reflect the season you could opt for a light sponge cake with pastel icing and decorations for a splash of spring color.
Summer weddings: For a summer wedding a light sponge rather than a heavy fruit cake is also a good idea, although it is best to avoid buttercream and whipped cream if it is hot, as this could melt and ruin the look of the cake. Other than this, you can get really creative with these summer wedding cakes, adding some beautiful floral arrangements and colorful toppers.
Autumn wedding: If you are getting married in the autumn then a rich fruit cake is the order of the day, with plenty of brown and orange colors to reflect the season. You can opt for seasonal ingredients such as pumpkin or go for a carrot cake for the perfect color and richness.
Winter weddings: A winter wedding means that you can go to town with your wedding cake, choosing a rich fruit cake with plenty of frosting on top, silver decorations, silver and metallic blue ribbons, and sparkly toppers – basically anything that make it sparkle and gives it a frosted winter look to fit in with the rest of your seasonal decor and flowers.
