Wedding Cakes are an exciting opportunity for the Wedding Couple to express their Love for one another, they have become a popular option to be served with Tea & Coffee after the Chapel Ceremony before Reception. Have a look at some of the trends for 2015 🙂
- Naked Weddings Cakes
Naked & Rustic cakes are one of the biggest trends in 2015, and are perfect for the less formal Wedding. With a Naked Cake you get 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 mini Apples, pears, persimmons or even blood oranges. Garnish with Fresh seasonal flowers and you have a master piece of elegance & beauty. The exposed cake filling of the naked cake appeal to both the eyes and the stomach.
2. Metallic Wedding Cakes
Metallic’s are big for stationery, and for wedding cakes as well. The Cake 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 can add a decorative sheen to your cake without overpowering the whole design
3. Ruffle Wedding Cake
For a seriously elegant look, skip the bold patterns and add-ons in favor of the subtle embellishments with allover sugar ruffles. The look is light and airy and needs very little added detail. Finish it off with fresh flowers in between each tier or a few sugar flowers on top.
4. White – On – White
All White themed Weddings are alone a huge trend for 2015, however a White Wedding cake is always in good taste. The fresh new way to do a white wedding cake is to add interesting all-white embellishments. Dress up tiers with details, like piped embroidery or jeweled embellishments, such as pearls or petals. To add another “something special” is to do Hexagon or Oval shape tiers instead of the traditional round
5. Hand-Painted Wedding Cakes
Now this is an exciting option, ask your baker to get a little artsy with your cake design by giving him/her a sample of your Wedding Invitation. We’re talking marbleized cakes, stained-glass painted cakes and even Monet-inspired wedding cake designs. Pair those hand-painted tiers with a solid-colored layer or even simple flowers accents.
6. Lace Wedding Cakes
This is an amazing opportunity for Brides to have their beautiful Wedding Dress reflected into the Wedding Cake. A lot of Bride’s are looking for patterns copied from the Lace in their dress. So decide on your favourite accent from your Wedding Dress and highlight it on your Wedding Cake, from a few simple sugar-made buttons to ivory and white fondant lace appliques wrapped around each tier. The key to pulling off this look is the color. This trend works best with light hues and little contrast
7. Woodland Wedding Cake
Earthy, whimsical wedding themes are hot this year, so its no wonder this same aesthetic is big for wedding cakes too. To get the look, choose an edible white or ivory color and accent it with fresh or lifelike sugar flowers & leaves. The display can really help you carry out the look here too. One pretty idea is to order a simple white cake and place it on top of a Wooden tree ring decorated with Moss & Leaves
8. Rosette Wedding Cake
The rosette trend, with textural sugar-made roses all over the cake, is fun because the added dimension is different and unique but the look is still elegant and beautiful. We suggest sticking to White or Ivory rosettes, as allover color tends to make the cake look juvenile. You need to make sure you balance that textured layer with something else so your eye doesn’t get stuck or so that the cake does not look overloaded
9. Illustrated Wedding Cake
This popular trend is a perfect expression of the couples journey together and the future they have to share together. This cake needs minimal explanation, your Imagination can run wild and your Cake can tell the story of your Dreams together
10. Ombre’ Wedding Cake
This Cake trend began in 2014 and has continued into 2015. Blend yellow to orange sugar hearts for a graphic, modern style, or go Red to light pink with cascading sugar-made flower petals. Consider an Ivory Ombre for a Classic look that’s both subtle and stunning
