It’s that time of year again to have a look at best and most popular wedding cake designs and trends for the coming year.
last year there was a huge rise in vintage style cakes, this is still the case but what is vintage now?
20’s and 30’s designs with lots of pearls, feathers, large flowers and metallic lusta finishes. Inspiration from Hollywood movies like the Great Gatsby.
50’s lush pastel colour’s, pretty flower sprays, frills and simple lace bring the 50’s style back to life.
Rustic is in!!! fluffy rich butter cream icing and fresh flowers, or old fashion tiered sponge cakes with no icing just flowers and berries. This is the shabby chic look, lots of natural products like wooden creates, chalk boards, old suitcase and trunks, paper crafts anything that is DIY is in.
What is on it’s way from oversea’s
America has a huge influence on our style. Last year lolly buffets where the thing, just like cupcakes before that. But whats next. Dessert buffets with lots on yummy treats to impress your guests, deconstructed cakes in jars, pops, Macaron’s, and loads of biscuits and cookies. You just have to look at the amazing photo’s from Martha Stewart, to see what ideas you can come up with.
