Your wedding day is among the most joyful and memorable days of your life. It pays to have a wedding cake that matches!
While many couples opt for a traditional tiered white cake, there’s no reason you can’t focus on something with a lot more flair. Wedding cake trends change all the time, and some exciting things are going on in 2017.
You will put a lot of thought into choosing your cake design, so be sure to consider these great ideas before making your final decision!
Bringing light into your cake can be a great way to show the love that you have for your new spouse. Many ceremonies involve lighting a unity candle, and including lights in your cake continue the theme.
When you take a traditional white tier cake and add lights, you get a one-of-a-kind, memorable dessert.
Not only will you enjoy it, but your guests will also be talking about it for years! If you choose a tiered cake that doesn’t quite serve everyone, having lights on complementary sheet or cube cakes nearby can finish the scene.
Bold Colors and Bling
Metallic looks and bold colors are both hot wedding cake trends in 2017. Gold leaf, gilding, and even metallic dust are making appearances.
Couples are also choosing bold colors rather than traditional whites and creams. A cake like this purple tier cake with faux-diamond wrap can play off of both these trends and provide your ceremony with something truly unique.
Many couples choose to focus their bold color choices on tones that complement the wedding colors. With a custom design, you can easily incorporate the look and feel of your ceremony into your cake.
Rockin’ Wedding Cake Trends
Wedding cakes with stunning geode patterns are all the rage this year. An amethyst geode cake by Rachel Teufel started the craze, and many have followed suit.
With edible sugar crystals, these striking designs will make you say goodbye to any thoughts you had about a traditional white cake. Rock candy and creamy icing adorn these decidedly show-stopping desserts.
Be sure to talk with your baker before ordering a geode cake to ensure that they are aware of the trend and have the skills to execute it. You don’t want anything that looks like a poor copy!
A Natural Look with Foliage
If your wedding has more relaxed, outdoorsy feel, you may want a cake with a more natural look. Instead of a formal wedding cake or a stunning fancy design, you can choose to have natural foliage and flowers decorate your dessert.
A simple wreath may be all you’re looking for, or you can add details like herbs, flower sprays, or green leaves. No matter how you choose to structure your decoration, your cake will make a statement that you aren’t into high-maintenance glamor.
A relaxed ceremony and laid-back reception is a great place to take advantage of these natural wedding cake trends.
Choose an Experienced Professional
Your wedding day is not a time when you can experiment with an amateur bakery. You want to make sure you choose a professional who has years of experience creating exceptional confections.
