Top 7 wedding cake trends.

Deciding on a wedding cake design that matches your theme can be tricky, especially as you might already have a few ideas in mind. There’s no doubt that the most delicious part of a wedding has to be the cake, which makes it harder to decide on a flavour as well as a design. At Events By Natasha, we’ve gathered together our top wedding cake trends, which you can incorporate into your special day.

1. Wedding Cake With Fresh Flowers

Fresh flowers are a quick and easy way to decorate a wedding cake, but they add a fresh theme and vibrancy to the cake; they can also be the main decoration or enhance how it looks. However, we would recommend asking your florist which fresh flowers are best to use on a wedding cake, as some flowers are toxic. Whether you have flowers cascading down the many layers or use flowers to separate the tiers, they are a wonderful way to turn your cake into an ideal representation of your special day.

2. Wedding Cake With Gold Details

Gold represents glamour and luxury; using gold on your wedding cake can turn it into an item of worth and quality. Creating gold leaf details is a beautiful technique to take a wedding cake design to the next level. Using edible gold is one of the best quality cake decorations that you can use and it instantly adds an element of style and elegance to your cake. Even if you want it to be subtle, the smallest of gold flecks or edible gold leaves is enough to add that bit of luxury to your wedding cake.

3. Single-Tier Wedding Cake

They may be small, but single-tier wedding cakes can be quite the statement for your wedding day, from a rustic naked wedding cake to vibrant colours for a quirky design. The designs are endless for single-tier wedding cakes; even though they’re smaller, they can still perfectly show your style and personality. This trend has taken off over the years, becoming a popular trend for a wedding cake; it is a perfect way to save money without sacrificing beauty or luxury.

4. Wedding Cake With Pampas Grass Decor

Pampas grass might not be your first thought when it comes to a wedding cake decoration. However, the simplicity of a plain white or cream cake with a few dried stems of pampas grass will add a sense of elegance to your day; sugar flowers and a few plumes are the perfect combinations. It is often associated with a boho or bohemian wedding theme; however, a wedding cake with pampas grass decor is modern and minimalistic.

5. Dripping Wedding Cakes

This is the cake trend that has stormed the internet; drip cakes are made by drizzling glaze or ganache over the top of the cake to drip down the outside of the cake. Dripping Wedding Cakes are a delectable design that is the perfect feature of modern weddings, with funky colours and extra features such as flowers that can be tailored to your style.

6. Individual Mini Cakes

A tower of mini iced wedding cakes is an elegant and modern way to celebrate your wedding day. Serving individual mini cakes during your wedding is the perfect way to show your indulgence, where each one of your guests can take a cake away or eat it during the reception. The individual cakes can be cupcakes too, which provide a fantastic alternative whilst still serving up a delicious piece of cake.

7. Naked Cakes

This is kind of an oldie, but a goodie. Naked cakes have become a timeless classic style that works every time, with a ‘shabby-chic’ vibe. With buttercream lightly spread around the cake edges and looks great when finished with intricate flowers, which can be fresh, dried or sugared. This style of wedding cake can either be completely naked or covered with the thinnest layer of icing.

So there you have it, a plethora of wedding cake designs to choose from. If you’d like more wedding and event planning tips get in touch with Events by Natasha today!
