Refreshing cake colors
Weddings are a great time to have fun with your favorite colors, but many brides feel compelled to stick with white and ivory, whether due to tradition or association of the cake with the dress. White cakes are lovely and convey elegance, but for some brides color is the way to go. The cakes above use colors we don't see very often in bride's cakes - coral, lime green, lilac and sea green. They also do a great job reflecting the season of late spring and summer. The colors are refreshing and evoke summery breezes, flowers and fruits. The lime green cake actually had a lime curd filling.
These colors might not work so well with a fall theme, so color decisions should take into account the season. Above all else, the cake should be a reflection of the bride's personality and style.
