Fresh Fruit Wedding Cakes
As fresh as a Southern spring, these fruit- and berry-bedecked wedding cakes celebrate the abundance of the changing seasons. Sugar roses don’t have anything on these straight-from-the-field decorations!
For a bride who doesn’t like cake, a tiered shortcake (made from her grandpa’s pound cake recipe!) layered with fresh strawberries and a creamy filling was the perfect choice. Ceramic bluebird toppers lend an extra touch of country charm.
Apples, plums, figs, and blackberries in the jewel tones of fall decorate this square tiered cake. Each layer has a different filling and flavor.
Succulents and Berries
The natural charm of fresh berries and sculptural succulents enliven the simple, buttercream-wrapped tiers of this tres leches cake.
Cherry on Top
Tidy rows of Rainier cherries mark each tier of this farm-fresh cake, and offer a hint of what’s inside.
Cool Citrus Cake
The cheerful hue of diminutive kumquats brightens up this classic light-gray cake. We love the addition of graceful orange blossoms too!
From its preppy striped bow to its darling gum paste strawberries, this eye-catching cake is a cheerful spring or summer design for a Southern bride.
A hummingbird would be right at home near this garden-casual, simply frosted wedding cake. Fresh berries are a colorful complement to a traditional layered hummingbird cake.
Apple of My Eye
Loosely inspired by the Kentucky Derby, this cake makes gentle nods to that iconic race with its (edible!) gold-dusted apples and red rosebud sprays.
The beautiful hues of sugar-dusted peaches add a colorful note to this otherwise all-white cake. We love the rustic tree-trunk stand!
Berries and Cream
This bride and groom chose a simple two-tier pound cake filled with lemon custard frosting and topped with fresh strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries—perfect for a summer wedding!
