Beach weddings in many cases are destination weddings, a well known choice by many couples that are trying to wrap their honeymoon and wedding into one, or to truly have a smaller, intimate and inexpensive event. On top of that, getting married near the shore is extraordinarily romantic, and could make your wedding experience and memories, very much more special.
If you're a bride-to-be, looking for a beach wedding cakes, what design should you be trying to find? What design makes a cake so "by the shore"? Well, that depends upon a lot of things. It depends on the couples'style, interests and hobbies. It depends on theme of the function, the season, the characteristics and layout of the location...just to mention a few. To obtain ideas on which cake might be right for your beach wedding, we've rounded up a lot of ideas that we've included below:
You simply can't go wrong with sea shells on a beach wedding cake. Just what exactly shells? Beaded periwinkle, Florida cone, and maculated ear moon, are some of the very most beautiful sea shells for decoration. Small items of coral, can also be another great choice. The ocean shells can be real (wash them well!), or may be made from a number of icing, molding paste or chocolate. Sea shells may be used subtly or as the main design of the cake. A group of shells, while the seashell cake topper is vital for this cake design.
- Incorporate enchanting sea creatures, such as for instance anemones, turtles, tropical fish, sea lions, jellyfish, sea stars, dolphins, whales, or sea horses. We did a marriage in Monterey a few years ago, and the reception was at the Monterey Plaza Hotel - which can be right next door to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The entire wedding party visited the aquarium your day before the wedding, experienced a personal tour and had an excellent time. The aquarium was the perfect inspiration for the theme of the cake. The cake designer subtly incorporated a few of the sea creatures from the aquarium in to the dessert. The topper was a sizable 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!)
San Antonio Cake
Crashing waves encircling the cake is an ideal trim for a cake with a surf theme. This style cake is most appropriate for couples who surf, or perhaps love the waves. The surf could be puffy foaming waves, or just subtle hints of wave shaped frosting. Incorporating some blue into the cake can make it look more such as the ocean. Airbrushing blue onto cake's frosting, gives a real nice blended, and realistic effect. Add in a surf boards or figurines surfing as your cake topper, and you're set.
Hibiscus, cymbidiums, tuberose, or all of your tropical favorites. They can be used as a rose cake topper, they could cascade down the medial side of the cake or tiers, or used sparingly throughout. Tropical flowers can also completely cover the cake, or be properly used just on the base. Wherever placed, they'll decorate the absolute most plain and dull cake - and ensure it is instantly gorgeous looking, and smelling.
- Sandcastles on wedding cakes, are often used as a toppers. But, we've seen entire cakes shaped like castles, or at least the most effective half the cake shaped just like a castle, with a couple of traditional wedding cake tiers below it. To get the sandy effect, the cake may be sprinkled with fine graham cracker crumbs or brown sugar.
