Are you getting lost, following the crumbs to find your ideal wedding cake style? Here’s a red hot tip: forget the traditional fondant lacquered fruitcake and check out the latest wedding cake trends inspiring brides right now.
From naked and semi naked cakes, to macaroon towers and full dessert tables, the conventional wedding cake has undergone a makeover this wedding season! Think bold colours, edible prints, lots of florals, and cakes that aren’t cakes at all.
- Single Tier Cakes
If multi-tired extravaganzas are just not your style, you’re not alone! Single tier statement cakes are trending in a big way at the moment, with brides-to-be loving the elegant simplicity (and the price!). And if you’re worried about your single-tired wedding cake looking a little TOO simple, go for bold, bright icing, unique cake toppers, or turn your attention to the cake stand or table, and let your imagination run wild!
- Naked & Semi-Naked Cakes
What’s all this naked stuff then? Don’t freak out! A naked wedding cake is one without frosting or icing, and a semi-naked wedding cake is one with some of the icing scraped off to reveal parts of the ‘naked’ cake underneath. Not naughty at all! A popular choice for rustic, country and winter themed weddings, naked cakes are set to continue trending in a big way throughout 2016. They may not look pristine and perfect like traditional wedding cakes, but that’s all part of the appeal.
- Prints & Florals
Big bold florals like large statement peonies or proteas, or more organic floral arrangements with lots of foliage, are pegged to be the wedding cake decorations to watch this wedding season. Combined with edible prints with your favourite quote or wedding theme imagery, these artistic creations look too good to eat!
- Cakes that aren’t cakes at all
It’s hard for us to imagine, but there are some people out there who don’t like cake. And if you are one of those (strange) people, here are some wedding cake alternatives that will be right up your alley. Cakes made of macaroons? Don’t mind if we do!
- Dessert Table
And if the idea of choosing one wedding cake is just too hard to contemplate, why not go for a whole table full? Forget the lolly buffet trend of 3 years ago, the latest trend is all about multiple cakes, dripping with flowers, chocolate sauce and salted caramel, and topped with macaroons! Drool…
These beautifully unique wedding dessert styles will give your guests a collective sugar high guaranteed to get the dance floor jumping! Which style will you choose?
