Let’s be honest, how many hours have you spent, scrolling through instagram or pinterest, looking at cakes that look almost too beautiful to eat! 

We can’t deny that these days wedding cakes can be anything but traditional – we’re now seeing less classic cakes and more awe-inspiring cake design. Here we’ve rounded up our favourite sweet trends, which for us, deserve to be on every engaged couple’s radar:

The Marble Cake

Marble was once just a home décor staple, then it quickly became a fashion wonder… so it was only a matter of time before it made it’s way into baking. Marble cakes are the new trend that proves interior design can even transcend food! The look achieved is so delicate and elegant that it sits in perfect harmony with romantic weddings.

The Drip Cake

Becoming pretty popular is the dripping, with deliciousness, wedding cake. Taking the social media by storm, drip cakes come in all styles and colours and feature perfect drips of frosting melting down the sides. Best made on multi-layered sponge towers, these mouth-watering cakes are usually finished off with delicious toppings – including fruit, edible flowers and sweet treats such as macarons and chocolate bars.

The Watercolour Cake

If you would like to add a work of art to your wedding design, then consider having a watercolour style wedding cake. The delicate paintbrush can transform any cakes into mouthwatering masterpieces. The final look is indeed artistic, dreamy and colourful. Not to mention that with a watercolour cake you can add your wedding colour theme into the cake design and you can make the wedding cake a true focus of the wedding decorations.
