Each wedding focuses on certain colors and those colors must be reflected everywhere: in decorations, centerpieces, flowers and including the wedding cake. It is best if you choose two colors at the wedding and you combine them. Yellow is definitely a color that inspires joy, happiness and it lightens up the mood and the entire atmosphere. For a summer wedding, a beach wedding and not only, choosing yellow is an excellent idea. Luckily, you can also choose from various yellow wedding cakes. You can combine flavors, decorations and you can have a real masterpiece.
You can have the classic white wedding cake and you can decorate it using yellow colors. The flowers can be inserted in between each cake tier or you can pipe them around the edges. If you are looking for a more modern approach, you can use yellow pearls or circles and pipe them around, instead of flowers that is. Fresh flowers can be used, such as daisies and any other that are in season. Yellow lilies and calla lilies look exceptional and they will surely give your wedding cake a different approach.
Yellow stands for lemons, as it is the first yellow fruit people usually think about. For a fresh taste, use lemon flavor in your wedding cake. Lemon curd and Swiss meringue butter-cream can also be used for a delightful taste. The tiers can be ruffled and use curls of fresh coconut as decorations and candied lemon peels. On top of the cake you can place a pair of sugared Meyer lemons and leaves made out of chocolate lemon. For a softer touch, a string of soft petals can circle around the cake and result in a romantic touch. Use lemon curd for the butter-cake layers and frost the cake with white chocolate butter-cream tinted yellow. The blooms will make the entire decoration and you will have a classic, yet delicious and adorable wedding cake.
Tropical fruits are delicious and they make the perfect choice for a beach wedding. Have a tropical wedding cake flavored with passion fruit curd and top the cake with fresh fruits. It will be like a summer cocktail of delight. If you want to step a bit out of the traditional cake rules, you can have a hexagonal wedding cake with five tiers and each layer can be iced with butter-cream and tiers can be piped with decorations of your choice, including initials of the bride and the groom.
