Spring has finally arrived at Glitzy Secrets HQ and we couldn’t be happier about it! This delightful time of year brings with it a plethora of posies, new beginnings and the start of wedding season. What’s not to love?! With the abundance of beautiful blooms, we’re looking at floral wedding cakes for spring.
These fabulous floral designs will always be one of the most popular for choices. They’re gorgeous, adaptable and suit any style of wedding. Whether you want something that is eye-wateringly extravagant or you’d rather it stick to something simple, wedding cakes with flowers come with so many possibilities. So, indulge in a slice of wedding cake inspiration…
Whether it’s adorned with cascading flowers or it’s hand-painted with watercolour designs, it’s easy to fall head over heels in love with these crowd-pleasing creations. It doesn’t matter if you’ve chosen a rustic wedding theme or pastel colour palette, floral cakes are super adaptable.

Let’s talk about the latest cake trend: hand-painted wedding cakes. Showcasing stunning watercolour designs and illustrations, they are effortlessly elegant and perfect for an understated spring wedding. You could team them with hand-painted macarons as lovely edible favours for your guests to nibble on. A hand-painted wedding cake will work wonderfully if you want a day with a fine art feel.
If you want something a little more outrageous, opt for a cake design that isn’t afraid to stand out from the crowd. Opt for an array of bright colours or tonnes of texture. Vibrant, trailing blooms can transform a simple white wedding cake and you can match it to your colour palette. If you want a five-tier masterpiece with the wow factor, cascading blooms will ensure your cake is the focal point of your wedding reception.
For couples who love the thought of a minimalist cake but want to incorporate plenty of posies, a one-tier cake is enough to make a statement. In fact, you could have a few one-tier cakes and simply display them on stands on varying heights for interest and impact. A handful of big, blousy blooms will make a scrumptious topper.

Greenery and foliage are modern, on-trend alternatives to using florals for your cake. Use fresh foliage to decorate your cake and it will add a fabulous finishing touch to a botanical or rustic wedding. Make sure you use plenty of greenery throughout the rest of your venue styling for an envy-inducing day.
For a spring soirée, why not team fresh flowers with fruits? Team berries with blooms for a wild, foraged look that will leave your guests wanting more. We think this would look particularly beautiful at a country garden wedding.
Make sure you match them to the blooms in your bouquet and big day décor. You can really let your imagination run wild when it comes to floral wedding cakes and there’s lots of lovely ways to give it a personal touch. From the cake stands to ribbons, cake toppers to dessert tables, there is something so utterly scrumptious about a spring wedding cake!
