Sweet and tart. Light and luscious. This wedding cake would pair perfectly with this stunning fairytale retelling.

Double Chocolate/The Darkest Promise by Gena Showalter

What’s darker than chocolate? Gena Showalter’s latest book in the Lords of the Underworld series. Cameo is doomed to never experience joy. Lazarus the Cruel and Unusual lords over his kingdom with singular intensity. When the two encounter one another the attraction is undeniable and the risk may be more than either can bear.

Rustic Vanilla/Bridge of the Gods by Diane Rios

Get back to nature with this rustic and simple cake and all-natural read. Twelve-year-old Chloe is used to living among the woods, but when she’s abducted and taken deeper into the forest, she begins to discover the real magic it holds. As she fights for survival she finds friendship in unlikely places. The danger creeping into the forest is as great as the power nature possesses.

Lemon Blueberry/The Gift of Goodbye by Rebecca Munn

Sour and sweet, this cake will go excellently with a story about both pain and love. Rebecca has two children and is going through a divorce when she discovers her mother has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. The grief and despair of both events seem crushing at first, but become a launching pad for strength, growth and love.

Strawberry/Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige

There is nothing bolder than a pink wedding cake, except maybe this story’s main character. Snow has been captive in a mental institute for most of her life. She knows she doesn’t belong there, but when she escapes, she hardly feels safer. When she runs away into the woods she ends up in Algid, a place of witches, thieves and a ruthless royal lineage, her true home. As secrets are unveiled, her heart’s choices have consequences she never could have imagined.

Pink Champagne/Rich People Problems by Kevin Kwan

Pink champagne cake is fancy and rich, just like this page-turner. Nicholas Young’s grandmother is on her deathbed, but he’s not the only one rushing to be by her side. Tyersall Park is a sprawling estate in Singapore the whole family is vying for and now it’s overrun with Nicholas’ family and all of their problems.

Red Velvet/Every Last Lie by Mary Kubica

Sinfully delicious could describe this cake and the book. When Clara’s husband is in an accident, she believes it is just that.

Told in alternating perspectives between Clara’s search for the truth and Nick’s final months, this thriller is a nonstop page-turner.

Earl Grey Lavender/Sour Heart by Jenny Zhang

Delicate and delightful this cake is as subtle and striking as the collection of stories it is paired with. A fresh and engaging perspective of the Chinese immigrant experience, Sour Heart, is a bold collection of stories. From Queens to Shanghai, this book will immerse readers in a cultural experience like no other this summer.

Coconut/Girl In Snow by Danya Kukafka

Lucious and deep, coconut will go great with this snowy tale. When a high school girl turns up murdered in a small Colorado town, everyone is touched by her death.
