If you want a wedding cake that will stand out, go for a unique design that will truly match the style of your event. From opulent fondant decorations to simple but delicious naked cakes, use trends for inspiration, but add a personal touch as well.
While silver and golden shades were very popular in 2014, this year brings softer bronze and copper shades which can be used for both contemporary and vintage designs. When combined with antique laces and pearls or delicate blooms, metallic icing can look very retro and nostalgic, but you can also opt for modern minimalistic design. Another way to pull off this trend is to use edible sequin embellishments in metallic colours as decorations.
Ruffled cake design is taken to the next level with complex shapes that resemble flamboyant wedding dresses. Think tiered cakes that look like strapless satin gowns and include elements such as ribbons, crystals, pearls and lace to make a reference to your wedding dress.
With their gorgeous natural design, naked cakes are just perfect for rustic-style venues and intimate celebrations. You should focus on the flavour rather than design and use simple decorations such as seasonal fruit, berries or fresh flowers. You can also personalise the cake with a DIY cake topper and coloured sponges to make a stunning visual effect.
