Spring Cupcake and Cake Ideas

Food is a big part of your wedding day and it's decor. Whether it's the the food at the luncheon, refreshments at the reception, or the cake, you not only want it to taste good, but look good too! With spring here and summer soon approaching we found these spring cupcake and cake ideas that will impress your guests with taste but also add color to your decor. You can find the recipes here on

Almond-Cornmeal Strawberry Shortcakes

Classic strawberry shortcakes get an extra dose of taste and texture from crunchy almonds and a cornmeal-speckled batter.


Chiffon Cake with Strawberries and Cream

Bake this incredibly decadent cake in a tube pan that is 9 1/2 inches in diameter by 4 1/2 inches deep.

Glazed Lemon Pound Cake

Amp up moist, buttery pound cake by putting lemon juice in the batter and in the glaze.

Lemon Cake

This sunny citrus cake is a simple variation on basic vanilla cake. Reserve the egg whites left over from the cake for the frosting.

Strawberry Cupcakes with Strawberry Buttercream

Strawberries take center stage in these moist, fruity cupcakes. Chopped strawberries are dotted throughout the batter and pureed strawberries flavor the indulgent buttercream. Delicious!

Spring Cupcakes with Sugared Flowers

These dainty confections, topped with fresh lavender-infused icing, are actually made from dark, indulgent brownie batter. Sugared pansies and violas form a glittering crown for the little cakes, which are rich enough to replace the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Raspberry-Almond Financiers

These petits fours conceal a honeyed, cakey interior beneath a crisp, crackly surface embellished by hand with hearts of jam.

Rhubarb Upside-Down Cake

This rhubarb cake has a crumb "topping" that actually ends up on the bottom. Each bite has a surprisingly crunchy texture.

Ricotta Cake

Sprinkled with snowy white confectioner's sugar, this ricotta cheesecake is soft, creamy, and flavored with vanilla and cinnamon.

Raspberry-Cream Layer Cake

Pretty pink whipped cream is an irresistible filling and frosting. It needs to be prepared just before serving.


Strawberry Mousse Cake

A sinfully delicious cake that combines strawberries and white chocolate and is perfect for dinner parties.

Almond Petits Fours

Bite-sized and bedecked with gum-paste cherry blossoms, these almond-flavored cakes will easily be the star of your next dessert plate, buffet, or spring party.


Mini Coconut-Macadamia Bundt Cakes

These homemade mini Bundt cakes make great wedding favors when packaged in individual gift boxes.

Carrot-Cake Mini Cupcakes

Pink Meringue Cupcakes with Raspberry Curd

Light as air, this ethereal dessert takes the cupcake to new heights. In fact, there's no cake here at all: Meringue tinted pink is baked in the familiar cups, split, and filled with raspberry curd, berries, and crème fraîche.
