Wedding cakes have evolved considerably over the years. Gone are the days of original fruit cakes and white icing. Nowadays, couples are not only choosing wedding cakes that come in a variety of deliciously indulgent flavours but many are choosing cakes that are complete works of art, from delicately piped colourful flowers, to different botanicals and multiple extraordinary layers.
This year saw several incredible new techniques and twists dominate the wedding cake sector, such as the popular geometrics and woodland inspired designs. And 2019 is likely to be no different with several unusual wedding cake trends set to rise in popularity. Here’s what to keep an eye out for in the New Year.
What’s clear is that couples are becoming much more adventurous when it comes to planning their wedding – and that includes the design of their wedding cake. When couples realize the creative potential to be different with their cake designs and flavours in order to captivate their guests, many will find themselves selecting something that’s beautifully bespoke and unique to them and their special day.
