Tropical Theme Wedding Cake Designs

Tropical theme cakes bring a sense of warmth and airiness to your romantic celebration.  A tropical theme works best for a summer or a destination wedding on some exotic island.

Even if your reception is not taking place in the tropics, you can still create a tropical theme by getting married on a beach with the sound of the ocean waves filling the air and feeling the gentle sea breeze upon your skin.

If a beach is not close by, consider having a luau or hosting your reception in a botanical garden.

Bring all of your ideas and designs to your baker and together you can design your perfect tropical theme wedding cake.

    You can enroll in a High School cake and decorating class and learn some tricks to create your own beautiful bridal dessert. Ask a friend to help and try making your creation well before your wedding to determine if you're satisfied with the results.
