Although every cake we design is unique; like fashion, cake trends come & go. We have scoured the magazines, blogs and professional groups to bring together the top four trends that forward-thinking brides are considering this year.
Rustic – all things vintage have given way to a more relaxed look. Hessian is very popular. This trend incorporates buttercream cakes which can give a very relaxed look to your cake, as well as tasting delicious. This trend includes the popular naked & semi-naked cakes, but rather than fruit they are being dressed with flowers & hessian.
Dress/fashion inspired – we love this trend. It means we can have fun incorporating textures such as lace, ruffles, pleats & sequins into cake design. The cake could reflect your dress, or any other fashion. Think ruffles, brooches, feathers & all manner of exciting textures.
Focal flower – we first saw this trend emerging with vintage birdcage cakes and have seen it increasing in popularity. It is a fantastic way to add a beautiful floral touch to your cake, without blowing your budget. It is very modern & can work with the other trends, by adding gold to the tips of the petals, or lace to the cake.
Metallic – what bride doesn’t like a little glamour? Bringing gold, silver or bronze into your cake is a very classy way of taking a simple cake and ‘dressing it up’ for your special day. These metallic shades complement Pantone’s colours of 2016, Rose Quartz & Serenity
