The time has come, you have met the love of your life, they have gotten down on one knee and proposed and now it is time to plan the big day. The wedding cake is one of the most important components as it will be the centerpiece amongst all of the food at your reception. This means that you will have to make some hard calls such as how many tiers do you want it to be, what kind of icing, and most importantly of all what flavor you want the cake itself to be. Summer means that there are classic choices as well as fruity ones that you may want to consider.
Lemon And Raspberry Cake
The summer is a time for fruity flavors. You want the cake to be light and fluffy while containing the essence of summer. A nice lemon cake with a fresh raspberry filling can be just the thing. Your guests will adore the medley of flavors and you can use a traditional buttercream icing on the outside of the cake. Lemon itself is quite a tangy flavor but when combined with the sweetness of classic vanilla buttercream and raspberries it will create a flavor explosion which will have your guests scrambling for another slice.
A Coconut And Pineapple Cake
If you are getting married in Hawaii or simply in your backyard than a coconut cake may be just the flavor you need. Coconut cake itself is quite light as coconut is not an overpowering flavor. When combined with pineapple cream cheese icing it will become quite rich. Shredded coconut on the outside of the cake will give it a more coconutty taste. Just be sure to tell your guests about the flavor combinations as you don’t want to worry about any allergic reactions.
Pink Champagne Cake
Your guests don’t need to just drink champagne they can also eat it with this confection. Champagne itself causes a cake to become quite fluffy which means it will need an equally light icing pairing. That is where strawberry coulis and white chocolate mousse come in. These two fillings can be used for the various tiers in your cake to provide a luscious filling that will make even the most discerning of cake lovers sigh with delight.
Now all you need to do is get out there and start doing some cake tastings to find your perfect summer flavor.
