Flowers, sun and…cakes! Spring is here and that means the colours of our cakes have now turned brighter. In line with the season, we are seeing lots of pinks, oranges, purples, yellows and more. Scroll down to see what are the trends this year…
We know all seasons are best to enjoy cake, and sugar crafters don’t really need an excuse to create something new, but spring is the time more wedding cake orders come in and the time we celebrate wonderful occasions like Mother’s Day, Easter and Father’s Day. So we’ve had a look at what colours and themes are most prominent at the moment and here are some of the most stunning pieces we selected.
This stunning ‘Orange Blossom’ wedding cake is just what you need; a new look on the classic wedding theme with a very balanced mix of colours and a vintage appeal, it recalls a sweet honeymoon in southern Italy. A four-tier beauty with golden hand painted decorations, which was designed by
Susan Trianos Custom Cakes.
Perfect for any formal occasion, these vintage cupcakes are elegant, yet simple to recreate. If you have to bake numerous cupcakes in a short period of time, you can use different stencils to decorate them and add a golden touch like
Cake it Up Tortendesign did for these ones! Dust some edible gold on small pink roses and finally serve your cupcakes in chic cupcake holders … they will be showstoppers!
Another incredible hand painted piece, this time created by the talented Kim Wiltjer (
Cake Art by Kim) in the Netherlands. Create a 3D effect by adding details on the cake board and enhance the theme of the cake by scattering around small sugar flowers like the artist did. Recreate a cake like Kim’s and your guests will be amazed!
Are you looking for something to enjoy with the whole family? Forget fancy cakes and bake everyone’s favourite guilty pleasures: cupcakes! Add endless amounts of chocolate chips to the mix to make these bakes as colourful as they can be. These are also perfect to prepare with the children, who will love stealing some chocolate while mixing the chips in! You can decorate them with beautiful small roses with either our Flower and Modelling Paste or Buttercream. These beautiful cupcakes were shared with us by Emily Budge.
