What’s not to love about a freshly made dripping designed cake? It looks fresh, like the union between you and your partner. It’s tasty, flirty and it is one of the latest cake trends of the year. Mind you, if you intend to have an outdoor ceremony, we strongly advice you re-consider this choice, because of weather factors and the dripping cake. So as to prevent your wedding cake from looking like a sticky mess.
Ombre cakes are so pretty and elegant we can’t even deny it. The gradual blending of one color hue to another as the tints and shades move from light to dark or vice versa is a beautiful representation of strength, and growth. Which are some of the important traits we believe a union should have.
The beauty that comes out the mottled appearance in a marble cake is simply divine. If you are having troubles deciding on what color your wedding cake should be, then why not just settle for the colors you and your partner have in mind. Choosing distinct shades of the individual colors will make the blend look like a match made in heaven.
Vintage tiered cake
This year is all about being retro. Why not try this trend out on your wedding cake? Go for a vintage, traditional tiered cake, with edible flowers and feel like royalty on your big day. Remember the higher the tiers the better. One of the all time rules of vintage trends has to be “Go big or go home”. But be sure to do big and vintage in a classy and lush manner.
Naked or not naked? We just love the illusion cake. Why? Because it gives you a glimpse of what your cake looks like on the inside, while the outer part is lightly covered in frost. This way you get to see the actual worth of your cake. Another upside of the naked cake is that you get to be super creative but still have your cake looking effortless and natural.
