Planning to have a summer wedding? consider getting a summer themed wedding cake because what’s a summer wedding without a cake that looks and tastes like it’s straight out of Summer’s kitchen!
The first thing to do in order to achieve a summer themed wedding cake is to pick a wedding cake that summons a taste of summer with in-season berries and fruits. Then,consider a fresh raspberry puree or opt for a lemon cake with blackberry filling Instead of a traditional buttercream filling. If you love chocolate cake but still want a taste that reflects the season, try chocolate cake with a fruit filling like cherry.
2. Summer Wedding Colors
Color counts when designing a summer wedding cake, and you can’t go wrong with a palette of preppy white, navy and cherry red or a bold and bright mix of pink and green. For a more subdued look, opt for an ivory buttercream cake trimmed in light yellow.

4. Summer Shapes and Add-Ons
When it comes to a summer cake, flowers, butterflies and other elements made out of chocolate, sugar or gum paste are obvious options. You don’t have to go overboard with these add-ons to get the look. Consider a white cake stacked with subtle, soft white hydrangeas with just a hint of color. The tone-on-tone style will up the elegant factor and still give you the same summery effect!
