Cake-spiration: Summer Wedding Cake Flavors for 2012

Every bride wants to stand out on her wedding day and when it comes to trendy wedding cake flavors, red velvet is so 2011. For guests and grooms alike, the wedding cake is one of the most important parts of a wedding beyond the bride’s gown. But when temperatures rise and heavy flavors just won’t do. Here are ten wedding cake flavors that are guaranteed to beat the heat.

1. Passion Fruit
Nothing says cool and refreshing like passion fruit. Interesting, yet familiar guests will enjoy a citrusy confection.

2. Pomegranate
When it comes to weddings nothing beats pink. The pomegranate juice lightly flavors your cake and and the seeds can be used as a jewel-like garnish.

3 . Lavender
When it comes to flowers, lavender is the quintessential taste of spring. Subtly floral, lavender pairs nicely with lemon and almond.

4 . Salted Caramel
Salty and sweet treat salted caramel hit all the flavor points and is a compliment to champagne and sweet dessert wines.

5. Root Beer Float
Fun, flirty, and familiar root beer float flavored cakes are a hit with children of all ages.

6. Rose Petal
Everything old is new again in weddings and rose petal favored cakes are no exception. Romantic and passionate, roses are an expression of love and desire.

7. Tres Leches
Literally meaning “three milk cake” in Spanish, this flavor is very popular in many parts of Latin America. Tres Leches is a light and airy sponge cake soaked in evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and heavy cream… and absolutely to die for.

8. Grand Marnier
Made from a blend of cognacs and a distilled essence of bitter orange, Grand Marnier has the touch of class that your summer wedding deserves.

9. Blood Orange
Sweeter than oranges with a distinctively flavor with hints of raspberry, blood orange has a deep color that’s complimentary to many summer wedding palettes.

10. Chocolate Ganache
Chocolate isn’t just for grooms cakes anymore and this rich chocolate paired with a light frosting can be the perfect summer treat.
