Inspired by the sweet strawberry cakes that Swedes make during their Midsummer holiday each year, we came up with this festive wedding cake! It's perfect for an outdoor, rustic wedding. You can make the cake yourself, or simply embellish a store bought cake using our styling inspiration. It's easy and such a unique idea!

First you'll need a white dome cake. We used a citrus flavor dome cake filled with whip cream, from a small family bakery, and it was delicious. We just took off the doily and cardboard it came on and slid it onto a rustic wooden board. You could also make your own. Here are instructions on how to make a dome cake.

You will need around two pints of strawberries per cake.

Cut the stems off and slice the strawberries in half.

Lay the strawberries flat side down, all over the cake.

Keep the cake in the fridge until just before the reception.

Add edible wildflowers a few hours before your event. We used buckwheat, meadowsweet, and winter savory. The flavor of these flowers worked wonderfully with the citrus flavor of the cake!
 
 
We laid them all around the cake and sprinkled the petals and leaves on top of it. The more you add, the better it looks. Make sure the flowers you use are edible and have not been sprayed with pesticides!
 
 
More ideas for edible flowers:
pansies
violets
nasturtium
roses
calendula
 
 
Display your cake on a rustic farm table and decorate with flowers around the bottom of the cake like in slide one. Your guests will love digging into this summery treat!
