Summer is in full swing, and what wedding theme could be more perfect for warm weather than a country garden celebration? Quintessentially English, quaint and elegant, the country garden wedding evokes imagery of tea and scones, bunting, and croquet on the lawn. But which wedding cakes perfectly suit the décor scheme of a country garden wedding? Here are a few of my top picks.

Naked Wedding Cake with Fresh Flowers and Berries

You can’t go wrong with this low-fuss vision of delicious cake, juicy berries and gorgeous flowers, finished with a light dusting of icing sugar. Effortlessly beautiful, the humble naked Victoria sponge cake would be the perfect choice for a country garden wedding theme.

While it’s a bold move, why not try something a little different and go for one of the most popular summer desserts in the form of a pavlova with fresh fruit? Give it a bit more gravitas by adding tiers, like a wedding cake.

Wedding Pavlova

A great addition to any summer garden party, a pavlova is an unexpected twist on tradition while still evoking feelings of nostalgia.

Rustic White Buttercream Iced Wedding Cake with Fresh Flowers

A modern twist on the country garden theme, the rustic white buttercream iced cake is incredibly popular. It has a vintage feel while still looking contemporary and fresh. Some added floral decorations create an amazing centrepiece that photographs beautifully outdoors.

Traditional Wedding Cake with Fondant Icing and Decorations

The great thing about a country garden wedding is that it can carry off elements of the traditional. If you’ve always dreamed of a tall, tiered wedding cake with fondant icing, then have one. Your designer can add cascades of sugar flowers to fit the theme.

Traditional with a Twist

If you like the sound of the idea above but would like something a little more ‘now’, why not go for a traditional, tiered cake with fondant icing and decorations, but with a twist.

A birdcage cake could be a stunning choice, or fondant bunting around each tier. Your designer can help you create something unique and totally ‘you’ that works perfectly with your décor scheme.
