Beach Wedding Cake Tips and Tricks

Beach wedding cakes are the center of every wedding reception – they're beautiful, creative and above all, delicious! Here are a few tips on how to make sure your wedding cake is best enjoyed by you and your guests.

- If you can afford it, opt for more cake than you really need, even up to double the number of slices. This is definitely not necessary, but a nice touch so you can make sure everyone gets enough cake! A groom's cake can help fill this need and are typically less expensive than the traditional wedding cake. Work with your baker to find out how much cake you need.

- Send your guests home with a slice in creative, elegant and fashionable cake boxes. Your guests can enjoy your wedding cake at home, or freeze it and save it for your anniversary!

- Decorate your cake table. Although your beach wedding cake is absolutely the focal point of your reception, having an expertly decorated cake table just adds to the beauty and elegance of a wedding cake. Add lots of flowers, candles and other special touches for a dazzling cake table that your guests will remember.

- Skip the fondant, if possible, or at least have your baker lay the fondant over a buttercream icing layer. Fondant has the tendency to taste strange, and the buttercream will help mask it.

No matter what you do, your guests are sure to enjoy your beach theme wedding cake – but utilizing these tips at your wedding reception will let your guests enjoy your cake that much more!
