A wedding is a momentous occasion in anyone's life, and deserves to be marked with the perfect wedding cake. A wedding cake is a fantastic way to highlight the theme of love, and nothing says love better than the season of spring. If you are a resident of Brooklyn, and have recently gotten  hitched, one of the things that you will inevitably start thinking about is the theme of your wedding cake.


Choosing the cake

Various pastry shops in Brooklyn can help you choose from a wide selection of wedding cakes, with different styles and themes. If you have scheduled for a spring wedding, make sure the cake you choose goes well with the spring theme. A truly remarkable wedding cake has everything to do with the little details. Spring is the season of bloom, so perhaps you may want to consider adding fruit or berry elements to your cake.
 
Selecting the colors
 
The interplay of colour on your wedding cake will also play a massive role in describing its theme. While traditional wedding cakes are mostly white, adding a touch of pink or lime green is an ideal way to spruce up both the wedding cake, and the occasion. Other bright colours that match the beauty of spring include yellow and orange.

You can also choose from an assortment of sugar graphics and floral elements. These kinds of elements are a classy way to signal the start of a new relationship. Finally, a wedding cake needs to go hand in hand with other desserts at your wedding. You can choose desert items like lavender-infused ice cream, spring berries and cherries, as ideal compliments to your cake.
