If you’re having a beach wedding you are probably going to need a wedding cake! Beach wedding cakes can range from a very creative, elaborate beach theme to a subtle beach design or simply a “beachy” color.

 

To get ideas on which cake may be right for your beach wedding, we’ve rounded up lots of ideas that we’ve included below:

Sea Shell Cakes-With seashells and starfish, there is no mistaking that this is a beach cake. The sea shells can be real (wash them well!), or can be made from a variety of icing, molding paste or chocolate.

Tropical Flower Cakes:Tropical flowers are an entirely different look from the beach chairs and shells & starfish designs.Tropical flowers can also completely cover the cake, or be used just on the base. Wherever placed, they will dress up the most plain and dull cake – and make it instantly gorgeous looking, and smelling.

It also is a fun cake theme if you enjoy water sports, boating, etc.Anchors, ropes, buoys, wooden docks, life preserver rings, etc. These can be made from marzipan, subtly sprinkled around the cake, placed as the base, or used as a cake topper.
