If winter weddings whisper traditional white cake with sugary snowflakes, then summer shouts seasonal berries and fruits. Instead of usual butter cream filling, consider a fresh raspberry filling or a lemon cake with blackberry filling. If chocolate cake is your final decision but still want a season inspired taste, try it with chocolate cherry ganache.

Flowers can go a long way in tying the summer theme to your wedding cake. Ask your baker to create sugar versions of your wedding day flowers. While rose is a popular bloom used for summer wedding cakes, small sunflowers painted along your cake using an edible dye is a great way to add summertime flair to your cake.

Just like flowers- butterflies, birds and other elements made out of sugar, chocolate or gum paste will help you give the same seasonal effect. Alternatively, summer themed cake toppers can also be used.
