Wedding Cake Trends for the Upcoming Season

Weddings are extraordinary. Wedding cakes, much more so. Traditionally, they marked the first repast shared by the couple and were believed to bring them good luck. Today, these decadent beauties are nothing short of showstoppers - uniting the entire wedding scene decor effortlessly. Here are some wedding cake trends for the upcoming season that will make a statement on your special day.

 

Watercolour Cakes

Watercolour cakes can add an effortlessly chic look to your wedding. A contemporary wedding theme could easily blend into the aesthetics that they can bring. You can lean towards pastel splashes, neon patterns, and emerald strokes that subtly add a breezy feel to a sophisticated decor. Furthermore, a wedding cake embellished with glitter, marble, metallic, or ombre designs is bound to make heads turn. A plain white cake can be draped in multiple shades, doused in a single hue to complement your venue decor, mixed with opulent metallic tones for a quirky touch, or filled with geometric patterns. These cakes can spruce up your wedding by shaking off the traditional white fondant look and giving it a voguish twist.   

 

Custom Cakes

A lot of modern couples are looking to tweak traditional wedding cakes in order to suit their tastes and styles. The ‘half & half’  design is one of the more popular custom cakes. It can reflect the wedding outfits of the couple and can even be designed to portray their culture or ethnicity. Apart from that, you can also customise your wedding cake to infuse your and your partner's favourite flavours. If you are considering a more floral wedding theme and decor, a cake accessorised with sugar flowers and edible ribbons could work wonders. Moreover, if you're leaning towards a Bohemian wedding decor, your cake can also be accentuated with fruits, cupcakes, cookies, and some delicious macarons as well. A cake decked with fruits, for instance, will elegantly complement a summertime Bohemian wedding aesthetics. A lot of up-and-coming bakers are willing to dedicate their time and creativity to push their limits and create something exclusive. If you can think of it, they can make it.

 

Pressed Flowers

Pressed flowers can easily meld into a floral wedding theme or a beach destination wedding. One of the ways to inculcate flowers at your wedding would be on your cake. Apart from flowers made from fondant or buttercream, pressed flowers make for a very quirky element to decorate your wedding cake with. Ideally, these elements would make for a stunning spring wedding, but every season offers its own selection of blossoms to revel in. However, not all flowers are edible. Roses, Violas, Marigolds, Mint Flowers, Radish Flowers, Apple Blossoms, Lavenders, and Sunflowers are some edible flowers that can effortlessly enhance your cake aesthetics. A fun, artistic way to involve inedible flowers in your cake decoration would be by putting them in a glass case as one of your cake’s tiers. They could add an earthy feel to the setting. Flower pressing does take a few weeks to complete, so make sure you plan accordingly. 

 

Minimalistic Cakes

Minimalistic wedding cakes are a trendy way to add a sophisticated touch to your wedding. As they say, “less is more”. Generally, a minimalist cake has fewer tiers, less or no frosting and not much accessorization. You can perfect your minimalistic wedding cake by using isomalt, a sugar alcohol that can be moulded to make some really stunning patterns. Some of the more popular uses of isomalt are in creating crispy wave-like patterns and geode crystals that can resemble rock formations. An understated cake can make as much of a statement as an extravagant one. You can go with traditional white cakes lightly adorned with fruit pieces, fondant or buttercream designs, sugar flowers or infusing a metallic foil. It keeps your look minimal and effortlessly classy. Apart from that, you can even have a deconstructed cake i.e. multiple single-tiered cakes, or cakes with interesting fillings like jam or M&Ms. A minimal wedding cake can just be the thing to complement your wedding venue decor - fuss free and yet stylish enough to be noticed.

 

Traditional with a Twist

Traditional cakes don’t completely have to go out of fashion. If you are someone looking to stick by the good old while making a statement at the same time, accessorising can work wonders. Ruffles and ribbons over a plain white fondant cake can make your cake elegantly stand out at the celebration. Ditching the white cake for one in a darker shade is another way to keep your wedding scene quaint and classy. If you don’t mind a little glamour, you could marry brilliant strokes of gold or minimal macrame patterns with a simple multi-tiered cake. Lastly, adding elements of fluidity to your white wedding cake so that it appears to be perpetually in motion could also make it very modish.
