Searching for a wedding cake that summons a taste of the season?

Here are four creative ideas for a season-inspired confection.

Spring Fling

Spring is a time for pretty pastels. Pick your favorite colors and incorporate them in pastel hues for a cake with springtime flair, such as this creation by Andra Hammond of Sweet Perfections. Using the perfect palette of pastels and inspired by the versatility of fondant, Andra added polka dots, ribbons and flower cutouts – all sweetly suiting the season.

Summer Love

Summer is alive with bold color, florals and lots of love in this creation by Kory Guarderas of Superstar Pastry Design. Interpreting classic summer romance, Kory adorned this four-tiered ivory cake with sugar paste lilies, roses, daisies and other brilliant blooms. “Each tier wasn’t perfectly round, but it had many flat sides for a final look that gave the impression of columns topped with vines, dripping with lush flowers.”

Fall Fancy

Capture nature’s beauty and bounty in an autumn-inspired cake. Jeryll Luper of Creative Cakes by Jeryll hand-crafted a few sunflowers to adorn this beautifully carved, three-tier tangerine and pumpkin cake. Jeryll has been holding on to this idea for over a year, “and finally, an opportunity to make it come to a reality. I created the wrought iron basket out of a gum paste/fondant mix. The contrast of the black just set it off!”

Winter Sparkle

This whimsical blue and silver winter cake is Confectioner’s Studio’s tribute to the holiday wedding. Will McDonald masked each tier with fondant in blue hues that begin dark at the base and grow lighter up the tiers. The hand-made and hand-painted snowflakes are a combination of fondant, gum paste and pastillage. Royal icing piping hand-painted in pearl and additional sugar pearls and silver dragees complete the festive look.
