Some say a wedding cake design is central to the theme and season of the wedding. Whether that is true or not, your wedding cake is sure to be the focal point of your reception and should definitely be coordinated to match your theme and season. If you are searching for inspiration for your summer wedding, these summer wedding cake ideas should stretch the imagination.

Rustic Wedding Cake Ideas

Whether it is an indoor or outdoor romantic affair, summer weddings take advantage of rustic garden themes. Rustic summer wedding cake ideas include earthy themes with color, flowers, fruit and torn edges for texture. Semi-nude to naked wedding cakes can provide that rustic feel. Let the layers of the cake show through the icing. Add texture to the design by marbling your summer colors within the icing. Scattering or staggering an array of flowers will bring your favorite season to the design. One of the best rustic summer wedding cake ideas is a wood slice cake platter.
