cakes and tips on beach wedding cake decor
Beach weddings have a different feel than other types of events – a relaxed and fun feel that comes from the beach environment.
When you’re having a beach wedding, the cake is an ideal place to use your beach wedding theme.
Because your wedding cake is one of the focal points for your wedding reception, it is an easy and significant way to showcase the theme of the day.
Beach theme wedding cakes are also a way for you to have fun with your wedding theme and to express your personal take on seaside style.
There are many ways to give your wedding cake a beach theme. Depending on your particular wedding style, you can choose a beach wedding cake that will compliment the other aspects of your reception. You can showcase a beach theme through wedding cake décor, unique flavor choices and color.
Take inspiration from your wedding location whether it’s on the coast of New England, in sunny Florida or a tropical island. If you have a personal hobby that coincides with the beach (like snorkeling or shell collecting), you can use that.
You can even add to the beach themed wedding
cake by displaying it upon fishing net material or surrounding it
with sea glass, shells, flowers, coral or driftwood.
No matter what
type of beach wedding you’re having, you can find ways to make your
cake special. For our best ideas on beach theme wedding cakes, read
Types OF Beach Wedding Cake Decor
Before you decide on what type of beach wedding cake you want, you’ll need to think about what cake décor will work well for your location. Since most beach weddings take place during warmer times of year like spring, summer and early fall, the type of cake décor used needs to be able to hold up in warmer temperatures.
The best cake decorating material for beach wedding cakes is fondant. It is able to stand up to warm temperatures and it won’t melt like buttercream. But, if you have your heart set on ganache or buttercream, just make sure that your cake is kept in an air conditioned area so it doesn’t melt before you get to cut it.
