The wedding cake should be a total reflection of your style and taste. If you’re a couple who’s thinking beyond the standard white three-tier, you’re probably interested in the most inspired cake designs. Here is a comprehensive list of wedding cake design ideas.
1) ORGANIC FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS
One of the popular wedding cake trends over the past few years has been cakes that don’t look like cake. The movement started with asymmetrical, dynamic arrangements of cake. It involves floral designs, sugar flowers inspired by paintings from Dutch Masters. The arrangement may look like a still life painting, but these handmade sugar flowers are perfect for perching on a cake tier.
2) NAVY AND GOLD
The navy and gold color style is moving into slightly more feminine territory with the addition of another trendy home decor hue, blush. These colors can be seen every week at weddings. This particular cake takes on a lot of trends at once and executes beautifully. The other fashions are the geometric hexagon shape, marbled fondant and clean lines that have become very popular with brides.
3) BOLD COLORS AND ANYTHING-GOES DESIGNS
Many brides have a desire to make it their own and this trend is here to stay.”
While many of the brides that come for their wedding cakes have been increasingly attracted to bold colors, even those who want a more classic aesthetic are looking to execute something that represents their personalities. Whether it be a modern take on florals or something dark and broody,
4) TALL MODERN TIERS
Well-defined edges and crisp, geometric lines have become a go-to for brides but, it seems that this trend is transitioning into a longer and more dramatic form.
A lot of cakes are moving toward a modern look with sharp edges, clean lines and tall, skinny tiers. To give these stark cakes some interest without interrupting the contemporary form, it is incorporated with sugar fruit like apricots, blueberries and cherries with leaves like her cake pictured above.
Gray is a new, stylish shade in the wedding cake world. Apart from the regular whites and ivories, many cosmopolitan brides who don’t want to get into the deep, saturated colors have been asking for cakes in this cool, neutral hue. Gray is popular because it is very elegant and becomes a kind of neutral in itself. It’s a great choice for a sophisticated feeling but with a bit of warmth.
Wedding cakes have come a long way from the all-white tiered desserts. Over the past few decades, couples have been increasingly using cakes to show off their unique personalities with different colors, accents, textures and interesting design elements.
