With Spring just around the corner, this year’s Spring brides are finalising their wedding cake details and to help, we have put together a beautiful selection of Spring wedding cakes for design inspiration.

The Little Salmons Bakery have created the stunning vintage Spring wedding cake (above left) in a soft sage green that simply exudes old world elegance.  The ruffle rose design on the bottom tier as well as the subtle striped detailing on the tier above add a contemporary touch, while the antique brooch and vintage lace capture the beauty of the vintage style perfectly. (For a ruffle rose tutorial see our earlier feature here: Ruffle Rose Cakes.)

One of Cake Geek’s favourite international designers,  Maggie Austin Cake have designed the beautiful botonical style wedding cake (above right), perfectly in keeping with a Spring themed wedding. Maggie’s signature frilled ruffles provide a beautiful platform on which to showcase the exquisite dogwood roses and stems.  A fantastic cake design perfect for the time of year when the first green shoots of Spring are starting to peep through.

Sage green and soft mint is the colour palette of choice for the two superb Spring wedding cake designs below. Baked In Caked Out  have featured on-trend ruffle roses in their design as well as a spectacular sugarcrafted magnolia spray, artfully arranged for maximum effect. You’ll find a petal paste/ gumpaste magnolia tutorial here to create your own version.

Australian cake designers, Cake Ink have created a unique wedding cake design incorporating smart stripes for a fresh clean look with a floral sash of white gardenia and succulent plants for a contemporary edge.

For a rustic Spring wedding,  Marjorie Landers Wedding Cakes have created an effortlessly beautiful cake design adorned with vintage ivory roses and soft green ferns, with textured buttercream creating a vintage “faded elegance” effect. The cake has featured in a beautiful Downton Abbey inspired wedding shoot for the Every Last Detail wedding blog (with Hannah Elissa Floral Design and photographed by Martha Swann Photography).
