Summer will be here before you know it! You might be thinking, “Randi, you’re a little early aren’t you?” and to that I say, “No!” I’m already counting down the days to slop flops, sun dresses, longer days, and fireflies. This premature excitement about summer is probably due to the fact that I just got back from getting married/honeymooning in The Bahamas – two weeks of awesomeness (which I’ll blog about soon). Anyway, I’m here to talk about some of my favorite Sugar Euphoria flavors that are perfect for summer nuptials
Passion Flower – Our moist vanilla cake is paired with scratch-made passion fruit curd and topped with a coconut cream cheese filling. It’s perfect for a couple that is planning a beach wedding or has a sentimental attachment to the tropics. I love it because of the unique passion fruit flavor that pairs so well with the sweetness and texture of the coconut.
Rainbow Bright – Don’t get me wrong, funfetti cake is always appropriate no matter what season it is, but I think it’s particularly fitting for a summer wedding. The sprinkles suspended in our white cake and vanilla swiss meringue buttercream remind me of fireworks on the Fourth of July. It’s a fun surprise for your guests and it makes a really cool photo of you two cutting the cake.
The Bouquet – If you’re having a garden fete, then this almond cake infused with rose water extract and strawberry buttercream is perfect for you! The subtle, yet aromatic flavor of the rosewater and the sweetness of the strawberries is idea for an outdoor reception. Whenever I think of The Bouquet, I always envision either a hand-painted floral cake or a simple textured-buttercream cake decorated with gorgeous floral arrangements.
Strawberries & Cream – A true wedding classic! Traditional white cake with strawberry chunks, filled with strawberry buttercream and strawberry puree. This cake is a crowd-pleaser. It’s not particularly fussy and freshness of the strawberries really elevates the flavor. Think strawberry shortcake, but way better.
Mint Julep – You don’t have to have a ticket to the Kentucky Derby in order treat your guest to this deliciously boozy cake. Our lime cake is infused with a bourbon-mint syrup and topped with a bourbon buttercream. The menfolk will appreciate the bourbon components, while the ladies will love the mintiness of the syrup. Feel free to pull out wide-brimmed hats.
Nutty for You – Almond cake with vanilla buttercream, bavarian cream and strawberry puree mesh together to form an extremely sophisticated wedding cake. Though it is extremely decadent, the bavarian cream is also extremely light, which is ideal on a warm summer day. The strawberries add sweetness that isn’t overpowering and the almonds add the perfect crunch. It is perfect for a couple dreaming of a Parisian honeymoon.
Summer Lovin’ – The name says it all! Our lemon cake filled with vanilla bean buttercream and fresh strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries is a quintessential flavor for a summer wedding. It’s a little tart, a little sweet, and a whole lot of delicious.
You can’t go wrong with any of these flavors this summer. Choose one or combine a number of them for a gorgeous tiered cake. We would love to create it for you!
