If you’re looking for a first-class wedding cake this summer, check out yellow! This sunny work of art not only looks gorgeous but tastes as special as the occasion it honors. Delectable layers of your favorite cake are covered with icing that becomes a canvas for the master baker to decorate according to your vision. The possibilities are infinite, from elegant to whimsical, compact to very tall, in your shape of choice and featuring your favorite accessories from fresh flowers to sugar pearls. For beachfront weddings, you might like a cake with its yellow on white polka dot layers banded in blue, complementing the colors of the sea. Daisies are a playful favorite to adorn the yellow wedding cake.
Although yellow flowers and frosting are often chosen for summer cakes, you have unlimited choices. After all, flowers, fondant, and frosting come in every hue. The square cake with the “tie-dye” frosting doesn’t have to be yellow! In any color, its layering gives it an edgy texture, and the flowers on top are totally romantic. However, for summer, there are enough yellow choices—sunflower, daisy, goldenrod, lemon, banana, royal, cream, chiffon, and more—and shades of each to grant full scope to the most vivid imagination. Whatever the mood and theme for your wedding this summer, yellow is the perfect shade for your cake! [All yellow wedding cakes are available on Theknot.com]
