My Top 3 Wedding Cake Trends for 2016

Naked Cakes – a classically beautiful Summer Wedding must-have.

Names, shapes and bunting for those couples looking for something a little different to wow your guests.

Foliage – who doesn’t love a floral cake? This is the easiest way to combine the colour of your theming with your cake. 

What can you expect to see for 2017 Wedding Cakes?

Dripped cakes – a modern, quirky and unique idea, these cakes are sure to be very popular next year. The best examples can be found on Instagram @lottieandbelle

Geode cakes – The centre of the Geode is usually edible and made from sugar, rock candy and food colouring. The design is

built into the cake and is certainly a show-stopper!

Silver and gold leaf – We’ve seen a few cakes endorse the gold and silver leaf edible paint in 2016 but I’m sure this trend will really take off next year.

Top tip:

Make sure you keep up to date with the most recent trends, especially if you book your wedding cake far in advance. The best way to keep up to date is through blogs and social media.
