Spring has sprung here in South Carolina! The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, and we’re so glad to say that the spring wedding season is running full force! We have absolutely loved meeting with our couples to come up with beautiful (and delicious) spring wedding cakes to help them celebrate their big day in the sweetest way.
If you are planning a spring wedding in South Carolina, your wedding desserts are a perfect way to incorporate this delightful season into your celebration. From pretty pastels to bright, fresh flowers, there are so many ways to add a springtime feel to your wedding day treats!
Spring Wedding Cake Flavors
When dreaming up flavors for spring wedding cakes, we immediately think about light, bright flavors that take advantage of the fresh fruits that are in season. We’ve included some of our favorite spring wedding flavor combinations below.
Almond Pound Cake
There’s a reason this is a classic wedding cake flavor! Our almond pound cake is a moist cake with a light sweet, nutty flavor. It is absolutely delicious with a variety of fillings, but in the spring, we love pairing it with fruity flavors, like our fresh fruit filling or a sweet and tart raspberry jam.
It may be easy to think that vanilla cake is boring, but I would just say you’ve been trying the wrong vanilla cake!! Our vanilla cake is a soft, fluffy cake made with pure vanilla extract. It’s simple and delicious, but the biggest perk is that it’s so versatile! It can be filled with fresh fruit, your favorite jam, or a tangy lemon curd that will add a little zing to your big day!
Why not add some extra FUN on your wedding day with a funfetti cake?! Our funfetti cake is our classic vanilla cake (see above) filled with bright sprinkles! If you’re looking for a great way to add little pops of color to your spring wedding, funfetti cake is a wonderful option. Pair this cake with a tangy cream cheese icing or a creamy, sweet vanilla American buttercream. Your tastebuds (and your guests) will thank you!
If you’re looking for something a little more non-traditional for your spring wedding, blackberry cake may be just the flavor you need! Blackberry cake is a wonderfully moist cake with a lightly fruity flavor, and it’s dramatic dark color will surprise your guests during the cake cutting! We love this cake with a tangy cream cheese frosting or a classic American buttercream.
Strawberries and Cream
Of course we couldn’t finish this list without a cake inspired by one of the most delicious fruits of spring - STRAWBERRIES! Can’t you just imagine slicing into a pretty pink cake perfectly flavored with the wonderfully sweet taste of strawberries? We think adding fresh strawberries into the filling and topping it with a cream cheese frosting takes this tasty cake to a whole new level of delicious!
Spring Wedding Cake Designs
Once you’ve got your spring wedding cake flavors figured out, it’s time to think about spring wedding cake designs!
