Wedding cakes seem to be getting more beautiful as the years pass, and 2018 was no exception. Before the new year rolls around, we wanted to take a minute to appreciate all the incredible cakes from this past year. We’re rounding up our favorite trends from 2018- did your favorite make the cut?
Floral has been a huge trend in weddings recently, and adding fresh, sugar or simply painted florals to your wedding cake gives it a beautiful extra special touch. Adding a metallic cake topper is another great way to add a little elegance to your cake.
Marble and Draping
The marble cake trend is one that we’re loving right now. The marbled bottom layer and color blocked tiers are tied together with beautifully draped fondant, making for an elegant and tastefully modern cake.
A Tiered Naked Cake
We’re in love with the naked cake trend almost as much as we’re in love with florals on cakes. This three-tiered, partially frosted beauty allows for some of the cake to show through for a bohemian rustic look that’s perfect for so many different wedding styles.
Clean and Simple
Minimal style is very trendy right now, and it’s in every detail of the wedding – from the decor to the cake style. We love the simplicity of this all white tiered cake with delicate florals and greenery gracing its top.
A Gorgeous Drip Cake
Drip cakes are another trend that is up and coming, and we’re in love with this look. A simple white cake with chocolate dripping down the side is only more beautiful when topped with berries and greenery for a late summer, fall, or winter wedding.
Layers of Patterns
Who says you have to stick to one pattern on your cake? Mix up your layers like this bride and groom did. With a different, complementary design on each tier, this cake is a show stopper.
Pretty in Pink
There’s nothing more feminine than pink ruffles and satin bows, and that’s exactly what this couple used on their beautiful wedding cake. A delicate sugar lace layer drapes from the top tier to the bottom tier and adds such an elegant touch to this cake.
Looking for a gorgeous winter cake? This snowflake cake is a beautiful way to celebrate a winter wedding. The detail and delicacy of each snowflake is stunning. When topped with winter greens and pinecones, you have a flawless and delicious display at your December or January wedding.
