Cake love: a wedding cake feast decorated with summer blooms and edible flowers


Wedding cheesecakes decorated with dahlias and herbs

It may be turning rainy and wet here in England, but I am well and truly looking ahead to the summer and warmer weather.  I think it’s time to continue on from last week’s summery peony decorated wedding cake, and showcase another flower adorned beauty.

Normally I give you just one picture for my Cake Love feature, but today I’m including three as they show how diverse and pretty the cakes were at this wedding.  There are the stunning cheesecakes above simply decorated with a single showy dahlia at their centre, and some with the addition of some fragrant herbs.

Then there are these antique trays of dainty cupcakes, simply frosted and topped with a selection of edible flowers.  I’ll be saving this idea for a summer party I think…

And finally, there’s a beautiful shot of the entire cake table, with those dahlia decorated cheesecakes, trays of cupcakes, and what looks like a single tall white wedding cake with a mass of ruby red dahlias on top.

If you love seasonal flowers and are planning a late summer wedding, then this would make a heavenly wedding cake table and one that I’m sure your guests wouldn’t object to!

Just make sure that you source flowers (both edible and non-edible) from a reputable local flower farmer who doesn’t spray them with chemicals – no one wants a scrummy slice of cake with added nasties.  If you’re in the UK check out our fab list of flower growers and florists for local and seasonal wedding blooms.
