As a cake maker I get excited about wedding season because wedding cakes are so unique these days and not always traditional that it really allows you to be as creative as you want. Not to mention their grandeur.
I was researching last week about what 2018 holds for wedding cakes and what are the popular trends we will be seeing and requests I will be getting. Now there are three trends that I'm super excited about, they push the boundaries of a traditional wedding cake but are still so beautiful and elegant.
If you're newly engaged, getting married or know someone who is and you're looking for ideas for wedding cakes, look no further, this is the blog for you! Here are my top three....
1. Brushstroke Cakes
Literally using a brush to create feather like melted chocolate shards that are then added to the side of the cake. Such a beautiful and unique effect and so versatile with the colours you can have. So simple but so effective.
2. Celestial details
Taking inspiration from the galaxy, using celestial accents to match a starry night theme, beautiful in any colours but very impactful. Expect to see purples, blues and metallic along with celestial wedding dresses. If you want an out-of-this-world cake, this is the trend for you.
3. Geometric Accents
One of my personal favourites, a slightly more industrial and edgier design for a wedding cake but equally as beautiful. I had a request for a geometric themed cake a few weeks ago and the rose gold and pale pink hues just took the design to a new level.
So there are my top three for 2018, and why stop there, you could incorporate all three trends into one cake. What a showstopper that would be!
