Wedding cakes have been around for as long as most people can remember.  Over the past several years cupcake towers have had quite a run instead of cakes.  But the trend is changing and couples are leaning toward wedding cakes again.  This is very evident if you follow Pinterest, with loads of inspiration, colors and ideas.

So what are the current trends in wedding cakes?  Here are a few for you to consider:

  1. Metallic cakes are very popular for an evening or elegant affair.  It can range any where from gold and silver to bronze, copper or pewter.
  2. Ruffled cakes you will see everywhere on Pinterest. It’s fun, romantic and unexpected.  This style cake can be used in every style wedding or celebration.
  3. Ombre’ cakes are currently on trend.  Regardless of your color scheme, there’s an ombre’ cake for you.  This style cake is fun and adventurous.
  4. Naked cakes have made a splash this year.  This is a basic cake without any exterior frosting, which will work perfectly in a rustic style wedding.  Now you may think because the cake is naked, that it won’t taste very good.  You would be wrong.  Although there is no frosting on the exterior of this case, it certainly can pack a punch with flavor.  Depending on your style, this may be the perfect fit for you.

Regardless of your style, theme or color scheme, your cake is an expression of who you are as a couple.  So be adventurous and daring.  Is it a little nontraditional at times, certainly, but if it reflects who you are, it will be perfect!

Happy Planning!
