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.

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. We have a gardenia tutorial and a gumpaste succulents tutorial here to help you style your own wedding cake design. (You’ll find more on decorating with succulents in our feature here: Sugar Succulents).
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).

UK designer, Pamela McCaffrey of Made With Love Cakes also features trailing vines and spring blossoms with hint of lemon in her pretty Spring wedding cake design (below right), with the flowers and vines arranged in a contemporary style that still has a pretty, rustic feel to it. (For more lemon wedding cake designs, see our feature here: Lemon Wedding Cakes – A Slice of Summer).
Mike’s Amazing Cakes never fail to inspire with their unique cake designs and their mulit-dimensional floral design (below left) certainly catches the eye and captures the beauty of the Spring season perfectly.
