Sugar or silk, fresh or faux, there's no denying that flowers are still one of the most popular decorations for wedding cakes. As well as being beautiful, part of this is down to the sheer versatility of floral cakes - they can be designed to suit any season, theme or style. We've rounded up some of the prettiest cakes we've ever laid eyes on for some petal-perfect inspiration...

Floral wedding cakes look particularly fitting at Spring weddings, and we think the lilac, green and yellow colour scheme of this Elizabeth's Cake Emporium creation definitely suit the season.
This Delovely Cakes confection is every romantic bride's dream - blush, petals and glitter all in one! If you prefer the look of delicate flowers to large blooms, hydrangea are a fantastic choice for your floral cake.

Brightly-coloured fresh flowers like marigolds and cornflowers are all you need to make a huge impact on a white buttercream cake. This style from Molly Bakes is bold and beautiful.
Whoever said floral cakes couldn't be neat? We love the clean lines of this 'Whitney' design from GC Couture - combining square tiers with pretty anenomes is a great way to add a feminine touch to a classic shape.

One of the most effective floral designs is the look of a trailing vine of sugar flowers. This Lemon Tree Cakes features a modern mix of roses and yellow jasmine on a background of subtle ruffles.
If you have cash to splash when it comes to your flower budget, creating a stunning fresh floral ring and topper is one way to make your wedding cake a showstopper, as this collaboration between Cake Maison and Flowerbug Designs proves!

This standout design from Cakes by Krishanthi looks like a Summer garden in cake form! The subtle ombre effect, use of foliage and delicate ribbon give this cake a modern twist.
For a stylish take on the floral wedding cake, ask your cake designer to stick to one type of bloom. Unusual flowers like wisteria look particularly beautiful draped across tiers, like on this Peggy Porschen cake.

The undisputed queen of floral wedding cakes has got to be Rosalind Miller. Her breathtaking floral collection features innovative designs like this sugarwork and handpainted clematis cake.
You don't need bunches of flowers to create a beautiful effect - some careful placement of well-chosen blooms can make all the difference. Sugared Saffron chose to complement this chic ombre cake with a sprinkling of purple anenomes.
