The satisfied couple is currently on their honeymoon in Rome and had been no longer straight away to be had for comment. Beach weddings are often destination weddings, a popular choice by many couples looking to wrap their honeymoon and wedding into one or to have a smaller, intimate and inexpensive event. To boot, getting married near the shore is extraordinarily romantic, and can make your wedding experience and memories, that much more special.
If you’re a bride-to-be looking for beach wedding cakes, what design should you be looking for? What design makes a cake so “by the shore”? Well, that depends on a lot of things. It depends on the couples’ style, interests, and hobbies. It depends on the theme of the event, the time of year, the characteristics and layout of the location… to name a few. To get ideas on which cake may be right for your beach wedding, we’ve rounded up lots of ideas that we’ve included below:
Sea Shell Cakes – You can’t go wrong with seashells on a beach wedding cake. So what shells? Beaded periwinkle, Florida cone, and maculated ear moon are some of the most beautiful seashells for decoration. Small pieces of coral are also another great choice. The seashells can be real (wash them well!) or be made from various icing, molding paste, or chocolate. Seashells can be used subtly or as the main design of the cake. A cluster of shells, as the seashell cake topper, is a must for this cake design.
Marine Wild Life Cakes – Incorporate enchanting sea creatures, such as anemones, turtles, tropical fish, sea lions, jellyfish, sea stars, dolphins, whales, or sea horses. We did a wedding in Monterey a few years ago, and the reception was at the Monterey Plaza Hotel – which is right next door to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The entire wedding party visited the aquarium the day before the wedding, experienced a private tour, and had a wonderful time. The aquarium was the perfect inspiration for the theme of the cake. The cake designer subtly incorporated some of the sea creatures from the aquarium into the dessert. The topper was a large pearly clam with jewels and pearls pouring out of it, cascading down the side of the cake. (not real pearls, but fondant balls covered with pearl dust!)
Surf Cakes – Crashing waves encircling the cake is the perfect trim for a cake with a surf theme. This style of cake is most appropriate for couples who surf or love the waves. The surf can be puffy foaming waves or just subtle hints of wave-shaped frosting. Incorporating some blue into the cake can help it look more like the ocean. Airbrushing blue onto the cake’s frosting gives a real nice blended and realistic effect. Add in surfboards or figurines surfing as your cake topper, and you’re set.
