The Quintessentially English Summer Garden Wedding
I love summer and I love English, garden weddings. They are unstuffy, relaxed affairs in beautiful surroundings filled with flowers, fountains and fairy lights, pretty much what you hear about in fairy tales.
A wedding cake for a garden wedding should fit in perfectly with its surroundings. It should be bright, unfussy and incorporate the elements of it’s surroundings rather than clash with it.
Stick with colours that you find in nature and an organic look rather than something geometric. Sugar flowers are perfect for garden wedding cakes as they emulate the surroundings beautifully and elements such as butterflies or bees complement the look and provide a bit of fun.
When thinking about flavours for an outdoor summer wedding stick to something a bit light and refreshing such as lemon or carrot cake. Heavy, rich cakes are less desirable on a hot summer’s day. Stay away from fresh cream fillings as these may go bad in the heat and stick to buttercreams which will endure.
Our Spring Blooms Wedding Cake is the perfect example of a Summer Garden Wedding Cake. It has bright colours, is unfussy and of course incorporates the outdoors with it’s abundance of sugar flowers in pastel pinks and peaches.
