While to some, the idea of tropical wedding cakes seems a bit too casual and fun for a wedding, but this just isn't the case. Very often the way they're presented and decorated will allow them to fit into even the most formal of events. Consider a few quick tips if you're thinking of these unique wedding cakes for your own event.

Remember the Taste of Passion Fruit

When speaking of tropical wedding cakes you may be thinking of how they look, with colorful icing and decorations. However, what about the taste? You don't want anything so specific that most of your guests won't enjoy it, but a few touches of pineapple, mango, orange, and other tropical flavors can add a nice touch to your cake.

Often a baker can make different layers different flavors, so consider having at least one or two layers a more traditional flavor so that your conservative guests have something they enjoy! The cake is for them as well as for you, so keep their tastes in mind when shopping.

Decorations, Colors and Island Flowers

When choosing tropical wedding cakes of course your decorations will add that tropical flair. However, be sure you don't overdo it in this area either. Too many decorations, too many colors, and just too many elements can make your cake seem busy and overdone.

It's also good to think about the added elements of your cake, such as the topper and any other decorations. If the frosting itself is very colorful and you have many marzipan seashells and other elements, you may want to opt for simpler decorations around the cake. The last thing you want is for it to seem cluttered! And this can happen with tropical wedding cakes so remember that often, less is more. Be careful with the decorations so that no one is distracted by them and doesn't enjoy looking at the cake at all!
