When it comes to planning your wedding, picking out your favorite wedding cake design may be one of the most exciting (and delicious!) parts of the planning process.
If you're looking for inspiration for your own cake, read on to discover some of our favorite wedding cake trends of this year. From dramatic all-black cakes to elegant marble designs, this year's cake design trends are sure to delight you and your wedding guests.
This style of wedding cake takes a deconstructed approach. Naked cakes get their name because they put their delectable fillings on full display.
Typically, naked cakes do not have any outer icing and are adorned with fresh, seasonal fruits like apples, pears, or berries.
Naked cakes are perfect for a rustic-chic themed wedding or for a celebration that is more low-key and understated.
A painted cake is the perfect opportunity to infuse some artistic flair into your ceremony.
With this fun, new wedding cake trend you can play around with simple, painted accent flowers or turn your entire wedding cake into an impressionist-inspired masterpiece. For example, painted cakes featuring delicate, hand-painted flowers or even Monet-inspired floral designs have been especially popular this year.
Why not try something different for your wedding cake? A marble wedding cake is the perfect statement piece for your wedding reception.
These eye-catching, aesthetically appealing designs mimic the graceful flow and design of marble, giving your cake a subtle but elegant look. Marble cakes can also fit a variety of wedding themes, from modern luxury to rustic charm.
3D Texture Cakes
This cake trend puts a twist on the classic white cake. White wedding cakes are the epitome of style and effortless grace and this trend give that elegance an exciting edge.
By incorporating three-dimensional embellishments, embroideries, or carvings, these types of wedding cakes transform a simple, white cake into a visual feast for any wedding goer. What’s also great is that these elements are dynamic, but not overwhelming so this design can pair well with virtually any wedding theme you have.
You can also try other neutral colors for your cake, aside from white, to get the same elevated and stylish look for your overall design.
As it turns out, black is the new black when it comes to wedding cakes this year!
This trend is all about drama. An all-black wedding cake is one of the best ways to make a statement at your wedding because black is one of the most unexpected colors in a traditional wedding cake design.
Do you want to take your statement cake to the next level? You can opt to include texture into your all-black designs, much like the 3D texture cakes. These embellishments will further accentuate the dramatic feeling of your cake.
