Choosing your wedding cake flavor is one of the most fun parts of planning a wedding. Who doesn’t like to taste mouth-watering cake? However, with so many options, it can sometimes be overwhelming trying to choose the final flavor! Here are a few delicious and crowd-pleasing wedding cake flavors that will work perfectly for each season.
Spring Wedding Cake Flavors
- Earl Grey Tea: Do you love a nice cup of Earl Grey tea? Then this is the spring wedding cake for you. It works particularly well with a raspberry filling or a lavender frosting.
- Pistachio: A pistachio cake is a unique and delicious cake flavor choice for a spring wedding. The light and nutty taste pairs perfectly with vanilla buttercream.
- Almond: This is another nut-forward cake flavor that will surely be a hit. The beauty of an almond cake is that it works well with a variety of toppings, fillings, and frostings. Try fresh berries on top of a naked cake, a simple vanilla buttercream, or a delicious raspberry filling.
- Champagne: Why not extend the champagne toast to your cake? If your color palette includes pink, you can even go for a pink champagne cake. Whatever the color, a champagne cake pairs nicely with fresh berries.
Summer Wedding Cake Flavors
- Coconut: Hosting a tropical or beachside wedding? Then play up the theme with a coconut flavored wedding cake. It can be paired with a variety of frosting flavors and toppings. Try topping it with fresh berries, or filling it with pineapple. Even a dark chocolate frosting will work great!
- Lemon: The lighter taste of lemon perfectly complements a summer wedding on a warm day. It pairs well with a raspberry frosting, filling, or topping. A simple vanilla frosting works great, as well!
- Vanilla: You can’t go wrong with a classic vanilla cake. It can be paired with just about any topping, frosting, or filling. For a particularly summer feel, top with in-season fruits that are local to your area.
- Strawberry: Use this summer-time staple to your advantage. Serve a strawberry-flavored cake, or simply use strawberry buttercream and fresh strawberries on top of a lighter cake, like a champagne or yellow butter cake.
Fall Wedding Cake Flavors
- Maple Pecan: A maple pecan cake is perfect for a fall wedding. It works perfectly with cream cheese frosting, or a delicious maple buttercream. Top with spiced pecans for the final autumnal touch.
- Cinnamon Apple: Nothing says autumn like the pairing of cinnamon and apple. This cake is delicious without frosting and topped with fresh apple slices, but can also be paired with a variety of frosting flavors, such as maple buttercream.
- Pumpkin: Of course, you can’t talk about fall without mentioning pumpkin. A pumpkin cake pairs great with a buttercream or cream cheese frosting.
- Red Wine Chocolate: If you’re looking for a decadent cake for your fall wedding, this cake will work perfectly. The rich cake can be layered with dark chocolate frosting.
Winter Wedding Cake Flavors
- Red Velvet: Red velvet is a popular cake flavor that many couples turn to for their wedding. The decadent taste and deep red color perfectly complements a winter wedding.
- Chai Spice: If you love enjoying a warm cup of chai, then a chai spice cake is a great choice for your wedding. A chai spice cake can be layered with a delicious vanilla buttercream frosting.
- Chocolate Gingerbread: Chocolate lovers will love this combination. The spice of the gingerbread is particularly perfect for weddings around the holidays. Top with chocolate buttercream frosting, or even take a simple naked cake approach.
- Cranberry Orange: A vanilla cake featuring these two popular seasonal fruits is a great choice for couples looking for a lighter flavor with a winter touch. A cream cheese filling is a delicious addition to this cake.
