Planning seaside nuptials? The key to pulling off a chic, oceanfront fête is restraint. Of course, you’ll want to draw inspiration from the sand and surf, but there’s no need to invite every coastal element into your big day decor—and that includes your cake.
When it comes to your wedding dessert, consider incorporating one or two under-the-sea details. Perhaps some pops of blue or shell embellishments? That way, you end up with a confection that still pays homage to your wedding locale but in a modern, understated way.
Here are eight cakes that pull off contemporary sophistication without sacrificing an ounce of beachy charm.
Inspired by crashing waves, this dreamy dessert by Vanilla Bake Shop is enhanced with slate and sapphire tones, and accented with rock candy to mirror the surf’s salty texture.
This painterly confection from MJB Cakes looks like it was sprayed by the sea itself. Edible sugar shells and seaglass are a sublime finishing touch.
We dare anyone not to fall in love with this dreamy dessert. LoveCakes married two major cake trends—geode and marble—without going overboard on either.
Cassidy Budge of Flour and Flourish used a dry-brush technique to add color—antique gold and Aegean blue—and texture to the respective tiers, giving this cake an almost Mediterranean feel.
Moody Blue & Silver
Modern, minimalism done right. Sweeping strokes of moody blue create a watercolor effect, while edible silver foil (around the base) adds a touch of glamour.
To give this cake a wow factor, Savannah Custom Cakes concentrated the color in the center tier. And instead of a cake topper? A trio of cream roses and greenery.
