Color Me Beachy

You can add elements of the beach to your wedding cake strictly through color. What colors reminds you of a day at the beach? Turquoise, aqua, and shades of blue are obvious choices. Sandy shoes and rosy hues are the perfect inspiration. Or better yet, what about a fun sunset-color inspired cake?

Décor: Seashells And More

When it comes to beach scene wedding cakes, the more accessories you have the better! Seashells are often a beach bride’s first choice, created out of chocolate or fondant. Starfish, seahorses, sand dollars, or dolphins can add a special touch to your cake. Fresh flowers will add to the natural beauty of the outdoor theme, or ask your baker to get creative with gum-paste and sugar flowers.

A cake decorator with flair can create a stunning masterpiece for your cake inspired by the beach: What about a cake shaped like a picnic basket? Or a tidal wave? Or a couple of kissing fishies? Maybe even a glorious sandcastle shaped wedding cake – pile brown sugar around the base to make it look like it was built up from sand. There is no rule that says you must have a traditional white tiered wedding cake!

How To Plan For Your Beach Scene Wedding Cake?

Don’t forget to plan the ‘who-what-where-when-why’ of your wedding cake! As laid back as beach weddings can be, it’s still important to iron out the details.

Will you be serving your cake outside? If so, be sure to advise your baker and decorator in advance, as certain cake finishings don’t hold up well to heat and humidity, such as buttercream or whipped cream. Who will transport your cake, when will it arrive, and how will it be served? It’s important to budget for these necessities, plan for them, and discuss them with your wedding vendors.

A beach themed wedding is one of the most romantic ways to celebrate your commitment – so carry the theme straight through to your wedding cake. From seaside inspired flavors and colors to artful presentations, your wedding cake and the beach are a match made in heaven!
