White cakes are perfect for vintage, antique or period themed weddings. Add some splashes of cream, pale yellow, egg-white or sandy hues and enjoy a vintage antique stylish and refined wedding cake! But if you’re planning a more tropical, exuberant, playful, festive and cheerful wedding, you may want to choose a colored wedding cake with colored seashells.
These tiny creatures can be made form marzipan, fondant, chocolate – milk, white, dark, brown, icing, candy, gum paste or sugar paste. Place the edible seashells on the cake in a cascading style for a more modern look or space them evenly on each tier of the cake for a more formal appearance. Use two large seashells with the wedding rings or with the couple’s names or initials in the middle as a romantic and unique topper.
Adorn the cake with pearls and beadings, sequins, rhinestones, gems, crystals or diamonds, tropical or wild flowers, starfishes, dolphins, umbrellas, brown sugar sand particles, corals, nautical ropes, ribbons and bows, flags, mermaids, and anchor jewels for a more extravagant, rich, glamorous, eye-catching and striking look.
