While you would want your wedding cake to taste great, the design you choose will help to capture the essence of the season. For instance, flowers like tulips, daffodils, and cherry blossoms add a distinct touch of spring to the cake. You can either choose to decorate with edible sugar crafted flowers or with fresh blooms. If you settle on the latter, consider matching the blooms in your bridal bouquet.

When it comes to a spring wedding cake, you can never go wrong with pastels such as pink, yellow, and blue. If you want to keep it traditional, stick to a white cake and decorate with seasonal colored ribbons around the base of the tiers. Whereas, for a more chic look, consider covering the cake in colors like yellow, orange or lime green, and use white as an accent color.

Not just the design, the flavor of your cake should complement the season as well. Consider a cake with a seasonal fruits and berries. Instead of a traditional butter cream filling, you can opt for a fresh strawberry filling. If you want to stick to a chocolate cake, go for a complimentary fruit filling such as cherry for a springtime feel. As wedding cakes are mostly tiered, you can use different flavors on each layer to provide your guests a variety.
These are some ideas to incorporate the season into your wedding cake. Combine it with your own style to make it truly yours!
