Hosting a garden party is a fun and elegant way to celebrate a special occasion during the summer months if you’re lucky enough to live in an accommodating climate. This week on Cake Geek we have a selection of some of the most endearing and pretty garden party cakes from leading cake designers and sugar artists.

Jelly Cake UK have added beautiful hand painted blades of grass to their magical garden party cake above, carrying through the wispy grass motif even to the candy pink number cake topper for a beautiful design touch. On the left, fondant cut-out grass adds a lovely 3-D effect to this garden fete inspired party cake, with even a little garden snail added for authenticity – made from sugar of course!

Elaborately coloured butterflies wander amongst the lush garden blooms adorning this chic, quilted design by Firefly India (below left) – perfect for a garden wedding reception.
