Chic Under The Sea Themed Wedding Cake!

Lovely pink sea themed wedding cake by Juniper Cakery

Here’s a rather glamorous under the sea themed wedding cake we created recently for the lovely Sarah and Sam! Adorned with 24k gold painted fondant seaweed, edible white lustre coral, sugar sea shells in a light and mid salmon pink, tiny bas relief seahorses and ‘bubbles’ of sugar pearls winding up each tier this cake was such fun to make!

Each tier was a fun flavour with Cookies & Cream (Belgian milk chocolate cake filled with Fortnum & Mason Madagascan vanilla bean and crushed Oreo cookie infused buttercream) at the bottom, fruity Raspberry Chambord (Madagascan vanilla cake sandwiched with Fortnum & Mason raspberry preserve infused with Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur and pink raspberry buttercream) in the middle and our Rainbow Confetti Vanilla (Madagascan vanilla cake studded with bright rainbow sprinkles and filled with Madagascan vanilla bean buttercream) as the top tier! Definitely fun yet fancy!

To add a romantic touch (and to represent the happy couple) to this design we included two adorable salmon pink oyster shells with large shimmering fondant pearls inside each. We created these in the darker colour so they stood out more amidst the softer pinks, glittering golds and sleek white palette. Both are 100% edible too.

Adding edible sugar pearls in different sizes floating upwards on the cake helped give the arrangement of fondant shells, seahorses and coral a sense of movement much like under the sea. Each was added to the front of the cake in planned out curves with royal icing before being painted with a little extra edible lustre (theres no such thing as too much sparkle right?). Keeping the cake a matt white and the pearls a shimmering white helped make the decorations stand out more too.

Here are a couple close up shots of the lovely sea themed details! We loved the striking gold seaweed. Each piece was cut and ruffled before being attached and then painted with 24k gold edible paint. Arranged around the base of each are a flurry of various fondant shells, seahorses, star fish, white tube shaped coral, sugar sand dollars and taller lustre white coral.

This cake was then delivered and set up at The Deep on a gorgeously sunny Saturday afternoon – perfect for a late Spring wedding!
