Fresh and fun wedding cakes are great for informal weddings. Boho, beach or country-chic wedding styles all pull in fresh and fun options for great centerpiece cakes. Fresh fruit, bright colors, and lighter fillings allow these cakes to keep a bit of sophistication at a less formal affair.
Here are a few top choices for “Fresh and Fun” inspired wedding cake styles.
Bare Naked Cakes
As the name says, bare naked cakes show all. A light cake and filling are paired with fresh seasonal fruit to create fresh, fun with a sophisticated twist. Not too stuffy or formal, but fully elegant, this option is a trendy style that you’ll be seeing for several years. Top your bare-naked cake with garnished layers of fresh fruit, berries, flowers or a topper of your choice.
More conservative than her bare-naked cousin, an almost-naked cake adds a thin layer of frosting. This has the effect of sealing the cake edges a bit for freshness while allowing the cake and filling layers to show through. Showcase vibrant, in-season flowers as cake decoration or topper. This is an excellent choice for brides who want an event that’s laid-back with a cake that still feels a little fancy.
Uniquely Fresh & Fun
Perhaps it’s fully frosted or wrapped in fondant, but your wedding cake can be uniquely “fresh and fun” by being uniquely “YOU!” Not all wedding cakes are towering 4-tiers and traditional. Opt for a cake that fits your theme and personality – down to the unique filing flavor and decorations. Is it bright and colorful? Seasonally themed? Perhaps your uniquely fresh & fun cake is more like a cake topper and cupcakes!
