Summer Fruit & Berry Wedding Cakes
When the orchards are bursting with summer produce, why not add some fruit to your wedding cake?
Lemon & Raspberry
When searching for berry wedding cakes, look for tried and true flavor combos. Lemon and raspberry complement each other well. Rather than using a heavier buttercream, this cake calls for a meringue frosting to bring out the delicate taste of the raspberries.
Desserts do not get more summery than classic strawberry shortcake. This wedding-ready version uses sponge cake instead of scones or biscuits to hold layers of fluffy whipped cream.
Blueberry & Lavender
A sweet blueberry filling is sandwiched between three layers of lavender cake underneath this dessert’s watercolor-inspired swirls of buttercream frosting. Wouldn’t this be a fantastic choice for a cutting cake?
Cherries & Cream
Like a trifle surrounded by ladyfingers, Cherry Charlotte is such a special dessert. End the evening with slices of this dessert and red wine or coffee.
Strawberry & Rhubarb
A mousse cake like this one is better for indoor summer receptions because of its delicate texture. The cool pattern on top is created with thin slices of pretty rhubarb.
Plum & Blueberry
Rustic wedding? If you are planning a dessert table filled with pies and tarts, you might want to add this simple charmer to the list. Featuring dark plums and blueberries, this upside down cake is easy to serve.
Lemon & Lime
Brides that appreciate a great margarita will love this fruity summer wedding cake. A citrus layer cake topped with a tequila lime frosting, this tasty baked good would be right at home at any warm-weather wedding.
Raspberry & Champagne
Searching for a showstopping bridal shower dessert? Use a Victorian tradition of “cake pulls” inside of a raspberry champagne cake. Fortune telling charms are attached to ribbons. Each guest selects their ribbon and the corresponding charm is revealed when the cake is cut.
Blueberry & Ginger
Angel food cake is a favorite nostalgic dessert, and is used especially at vintage and retro events. Give this lovely cake a splash of extra flavor with a blueberry ginger compote.
Blackberry & Chocolate
Want a more traditional wedding cake? Berry wedding cakes can also be moody and glam. This stunning woodland wonderland-themed cake features handfuls of blackberries dotting layers of chocolate buttercream.
Blueberry & Cream
Much like strawberry shortcake, this simple fruit and cream wedding cake is a delectable conclusion to a summer wedding day. Each sponge cake layer is topped with whipped cream, blueberries and a light dusting of powdered sugar. Just remember that whenever you have a dessert with whipped cream or delicate frosting, that you keep it out of the heat at a summer wedding.
Fig & Blackberry
This luxurious topper is a beautiful combination of figs and blackberries, all with a drizzling of decadent chocolate sauce.
