Few flowers can command attention in the springtime the same way as cherry blossoms do. The delicacy of the blossoms is astounding, while their hue is truly romantic, with an incredible scent that goes along with it. With how stunning cherry blossoms are, it’s no wonder couples are featuring this bloom on their wedding day. During the springtime and beyond, couples are adding blossoming branches to floral arrangements and incorporating hand-drawn blooms on their stationery. Another gorgeous way to feature this sweet flower? Designing your wedding cake with cherry blossoms in mind.
While you certainly could add real cherry blossoms to a cake (the petals are in fact edible!), there are plenty of other ways to incorporate their beauty, from handcrafted sugar flowers to buttercream blooms. And don’t forget, you can choose to include either white or pink blossoms (or both!) to fit your wedding’s overall aesthetic.
