Metallic cakes

Metallic are big for stationery and for wedding cakes as well. The best part about metallic? They can adapt to any style; delicate embroidery in gold feels opulent while geometric shapes give off a fresh, modern feel. If an entire tier is too much glitz for you, consider adding a little sparkle all over. Fine edible glitter (think: pixie dust) can add a decorative sheen to your cake without overpowering the whole design.

Naked cake

Yep, you read that right. With the deconstructed cake, you get to show off the inside. For a summertime wedding, berries work well; in winter and fall, ask your baker to fill the layers with seasonal fruits, like apples, pears, persimmons or even blood oranges.  These types of cakes can also be beautiful and rustic,  finished with your favorite flowers. This cake is perfect for both small intimate rustic weddings or add a touch of gold leaf to make this luxurious.

White on White cake

 The classic white cake never gets old. Use intricate piping work, lace effects and different shapes and embellishments to bring this cake to life. For example – Brides can personalize their cake by matching the elements of the lace from their wedding dress to their cake with hints of white lace.

Grand tall cakes

These showstoppers are on trend. The bigger the better, this style of cake is ideal for couples who are getting married in a venue with high ceilings and they don’t want the cake to get lost in the grandeur of the venue.

Florals

From lush fresh flower cascades and floral cake stands to handmade sugar flowers and hand-painted flowers. This trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Brides can transform a simple wedding cake to an exquisite masterpiece by adorning it with flowers. Whether it is small clusters of posies around the cake or a cake draped with orchids, the end result is always stunning.

Take a cue from what many invitation designers are doing and ask your cake baker to get a little artsy with your cake design. We’re talking marbleized cakes, stained-glass painted cakes and even Monet-inspired wedding cake designs. Pair those hand-painted tiers with solid-colored layers or even simple flower accents. From marble effect to Geode wedding cake. These cakes are for the bold couple who love colour and aren’t afraid to be different.
