Wedding cake trends

Everyone loves wedding cakes! They are an essential part of a great wedding, not only will all your guests remember how tasty (or not) your wedding cake was, but also tons of pictures will be taken when you and your new husband cut the cake – which means that the cake has to be delicious to taste, as well as delightful to behold!

Many couples spend a lot of time researching and dreaming about the style, the colours and the flavours…. To be more precise, it’s usually the brides who spend most of the time dreaming and talking about the style and the design, while the grooms generally are more concerned about the flavours – as they just enjoy eating as much cake as they like!

In the last couple of years trends have gone from the simple cupcake, onto the “naked cake” with abundant layers of vanilla cake stacked and decorated, often with fresh fruits and fresh flowers. This kind of cake is perfect for autumn weddings, but if you would like to get married in Ibiza in summer please bear in mind that this might not be the best cake, due to to the hot weather and weddings being mainly held outside under the sun.

Another on trend cake is the ruffle cake, simple yet elegant. The look is light and airy and needs very little added detail – can be finished off with an ombre effect in between each tier and fresh or sugar flowers on top.

Regarding colours we have seen a large change back to the traditional white-on-white cake. The fresh new way to do a white wedding cake is to add interesting all-white embellishments and dress up tiers with details, like piped embroidery or sparkly glitter. Otherwise, if you are planning a countryside wedding, you can opt for a rustic look by adding some real leaves or flowers to the simple white cake to add a touch of woodland detail.

Also some metallic cakes have popped up, with gold leading the way towards very romantic designs.

Here for you some real Ibiza wedding cakes, crafted by the exceptional Ibiza cake-masters, that will wet your appetite & not only for their beauty!
