10 Splendid Wedding Cakes

A wedding cake may not be the first item on a couple’s checklist when planning their wedding, but it could be a wonderful jumping off point for the overall style of the event. Today, I would like to share twelve different wedding cake ideas and each is inspired by a month of the year. Each could also be modified to your favorite colors and sized to suit your wedding.
For a January wedding, shining silver details create wintery ambiance. An elegant combination of white and silver tiers accented with sugar dragees, intricate piping, and a single rose makes this cake ideal for a winter wonderland wedding.
A February wedding does not have to mean a Valentine’s Day theme with cupids, hearts, and red roses. Contrasting shades of pink make an bold impact on this stacked tier cake. Lovely ruffled flower details cascade across the cake with romantic flair. What could be better?
 In March, when winter draws to a close (here in the northern hemisphere), I think of the first blooms of spring that are beginning to appear and lavender is on my list of favorites. Creamy buttercream coated layers are wrapped with fresh lavender sprigs to create a beautiful and fragrant trim for the cake — proving that simplicity can surely make a big impact.
A wedding in April is the perfect time to celebrate cherry blossom season. This exquisite wedding cake features impeccably pristine fondant covered tiers. Dark brown branches are draped with fluffy pink cherry blossoms and soft green leaves. Each of them is carefully handmade and arranged across the tiers in a graceful and memorable display.
Lily of the valley are the flower for the month of May. Here, the additional decorations are kept to a minimum. Smooth fondant icing and simple beaded piping allow the handmade lilies to take their place in the spotlight.
 Pearls and roses are synonymous with June as they are the official birthstone and flower for the month. Consider this cake design with its beautiful lace trim and perfectly placed roses. Both can be tinted to match your wedding colors and the top tier, which is completely wrapped with strands of edible pearls, will surely make a lasting impression!
In July, celebrate the abundance of fresh summer fruit with a berry covered wedding cake. Bonus — blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries are the perfect colors for my American friends, as well as those across the world from the United Kingdom, Norway, and France, to New Zealand and Australia (and many more) who are planning a patriotic themed wedding.
August peaches are the sweetest and so is this delectable cake! From the burlap and lace trim, to the soft ruffled fondant, delicate flowers, and glowing gold leaves, this remarkable confection features an ideal balance of rustic and refined elements. The darling marzipan peach at the top of the cake is a brilliant finishing touch!

 This tier cake is an ode to the sapphire blue color of the September birthstone. The hand-painted china pattern design could be made to match your very own or simply serve as inspiration. Either way — what a creative way to add something blue to your wedding reception!
For an October event, an autumn color palette offers an eye-catching look. Fresh flowers are a wonderful way to incorporate the wedding flowers into the cake display. An ombre effect, provided by an array of richly colored blooms, certainly takes this towering dessert to new heights!
The hue of the sunlight is unique to every season of the year, so why not take a hint from Mother Nature when planning your November wedding? This gold and champagne colored wedding cake with beautiful embossed trim and gum paste flowers gently glows with the warmth of the autumn sky.
Any time of the year is a great time to infuse natural elements into your affair. To celebrate December, a snowy white cake is highlighted with pine cones, cranberries, and dainty twigs; bringing hallmarks of the winter season right into the cake design.
