Your wedding date is approaching, the dress is being fitted, the rings have been ordered, and the floral arrangements are planned to perfection. It is cake time. While a traditional, white, 3-tiered cake with tiny columns holding every ounce will forever be a timeless tribute to romance, we have spotted gorgeous cake trends emerging in 2018! We love to think outside the proverbial cake pan and bring to each bride and groom a delicious and awe-inspiring cake. We’ve collected our favorite styles to hopefully excite your imagination.
The natural stone of marble has moved from the counter top to the cake! A marble design can be dressed up for an elegant, formal feel or dressed down for an earthy, bohemian wedding. You can trickle your main colors into the design.
In this cake, marbled finish is combined with the geode cake trend, that has been popular in recent seasons.
Naked cakes are divine. This style of wedding cake really shows off the craftsmanship of the cake, filling, and has a very natural, “back-to-basics” feel.
Naked cakes feature the colors of the cake itself and are usually adorned with natural elements like fruit or flowers. This trend is staying strong in 2018 and 2019.
Gold Foils and Metallic Finishes
Gold foil and metallic finishes add a sophisticated aspect to a wedding cake. Metallic foils come in gold, silver, platinum and copper. In this cake, metallic sequins cover the second tier and gold ribbons adorn the top and middle layers. Gold foil can be added in clean sections or streaked into a cake’s design with a modern, edgy flair.
We are simply in love with hand painted cakes. From painted textures like this watercolor tier to full panoramic landscapes and painted flowers, this custom-painted wedding cake trend is wildly popular for its originality. White icing is your blank canvas, and your cake becomes your very own work of art.
