We’ve gone on the hunt for beach wedding cakes that are absolute masterpieces. This gorgeous and delicious gallery of beach themed wedding cakes goes from the classics to the whimsical. Enjoy!
If your love for the sun, sea, and sand has inspired a coastal wedding then you deserve a cake to match! Beach wedding cakes tend to have colors like light blue, turquoise, and sandy, golden tones. But don’t limit yourself to the tried and true. Some amazing beach wedding cakes don shades of navy blue, pink soft hues and pure white.
Beach wedding cakes can feature as much or as little confection work as any other cake for this festive occasion. Watercolor cake painting seems to dominate the ocean scene. Make certain you refrigerate your beach wedding cakes to keep them from melting, as they are painted over fondant. (Buttercream frosting can be stored at room temperature for up to 3 days.)
When it comes down to the details, there are gold layers, edible flowers, elaborate piping all the way to the traditional starfish and seashells – a must for any beach wedding!
