White on white

While many people still opt for an all-white wedding cake, a lot of innovative caterers and cake designers are playing with texture to add interest, while keeping it clean and classy.

Geometric Shapes

One hardly thinks of sharp angles and quasi-architectural design when considering their wedding cake design, but pointy and unusual shapes coupled with soft hues are definitely a rising trend in the world of wedding confectionery.

Illustrated Wedding Cakes

An illustration is a stunning way to personalise your wedding cake. First, the cake gets covered in fondant, then the design is hand-painted on the cake. You can really let your imagination roam when it comes to choosing the design, with options ranging from the flowers in your wedding, to a meaningful quote from your first dance song.

Smaller cakes

Don’t want one big wedding cake? That’s absolutely fine. An emerging, low-key wedding cake trend is to have three or four smaller cakes instead of one large one. Besides creating the opportunity for a very visually-appealing cake table, it saves you from having to choose just one single cake flavour if there are a few that you really like.
