Having a stunning, island-chic wedding cake is the perfect way to bring in that tropical Key West feel to your wedding ambiance for destination and local weddings alike. We absolutely love Key West Cakes for your beautiful Key West wedding cake that is equally delicious as it is beautiful. Key West is such a popular destination wedding spot for may reasons, including being able to bury your feet in the sand and say your vows with the gorgeous sunset as a backdrop. “That being said, tying that in to a cake design becomes easy: bring in the ocean with seashells and vibrant color. Lush greens in bold accent have been very popular lately as well, which show off the other side of island life: the gorgeous flora we have all over.”
For Key West wedding cake designs, Key West Cakes incorporates a lot of blues and aquas into the color palette with white chocolate seashells to accent, and sometimes real seashells! A beautiful textured buttercream cake with a blue ombre effect looks gorgeous next to coral accents and pearly seashells. For an even more tropical look, Key West Cakes likes to use a few statement palm fronds as the only color on a white cake for an elegant, island feel.
When it comes to flavor, key lime is the most well known and beloved dessert flavor in Key West. Key West Cakes’ key lime cake and key lime mousse are a lighter option than the tart fruit taste. When paired together, this combination has a refreshing, light, tropical flavor in contrast to the heavy sweetness of a key lime pie. “The key lime cake is also loved with our raspberry jam filling, which compliments the cake perfectly. My personal favorite though, is the coconut cake with key lime mousse, or the mango preserve filling! Light, Caribbean flavors embody the island fusion of our little paradise.”
A beautiful wedding cake with seashell and sand design elements is perfectly reminiscent of the beautiful ocean views in the Keys. A tropical, beach theme is the most popular design that Key West Cakes creates despite a classic, all white look with a couple gold starfish, or a blue cake with piped coral and Adirondack chairs as a topper – it all screams Key West!”
