Tropical weddings are a hit all year round because you can not only exchange your vows but also relax, sunbathe and swim in this beautiful place after the wedding or before it. Today’s roundup is right for those of you who are going to get married in tropics, and it’s dedicated to tropical wedding cakes.
A wedding cake isn’t just a dessert, it should keep your wedding theme up, keep the colors and show the style. Tropical wedding cakes are usually decorated with tropical blooms, fruits and leaves to show all the coloring of the destination place where you’ve arrived. You can have them all on one cake or take just some decor but of course some tropical flavor should be present. Let’s have a closer look at the coolest of tropical cakes to get inspired.
Tropical Fruit Décor
Tropical wedding cakes are often with fruit inside and outside, and these are mostly pineapples and coconuts as they are perfect for desserts and decorating. Order a trendy naked or drip cake topped with tropical fruits, maybe even half a coconut. Actually, you can order any cake from a plain white to hand painted one and choose fruit topping. Pineapple pies are also welcome!
Tropical Leaf Decor
Palm leaves are symbolic for any tropical location, so why not choose them for decorating your wedding cake? You can take real fresh leaves for cake décor, or go for hand painted ones or just for topping your cake with them. They can be also stylized, edible ones, taken in any color that you like and attached over the whole cake. Banana leaves are another great idea for a tropical wedding cake, and they can be also hand painted or really attached to your cake. My faves are plain white or black cakes with leaf décor, this is really a new and fresh take on a traditional tropical wedding cake.
Tropical Flower Décor
Now for the leaders among tropical wedding cakes! Tropical blooms are the most popular idea here, the bolder they are, the better. You can find plain, metallic, colorful, patterned – any wedding cakes topped with tropical flowers! Mix them with leaves and greenery for a bolder look, or on the contrary – take a square white cake topped with white orchids for pure elegance. Try different layers: a plain, textural, hand painted one, choose various bold colors for one cake – of course they should be in your wedding color scheme, too. Look at these ideas to get inspired!
