Each wedding season brings upon fresh and inspiring trends – a new & unique take on classic wedding traditions. This carries through to the most high profile item on a wedding menu, to the ultimate vehicle of a couple’s self-expression and for guests, it is one of their favourite parts of the reception, the wedding cake!

Over the last decade boundaries certainly have been pushed when it comes to wedding cake creations – and for this we are thankful! From the limited design options and the use of pillars between each tier, not to mention the mountainous piles of intricate, old fashioned piping, wedding cakes are now stylish reflections of the décor ‘look & feel’.

Every one of these confectionary creations are unique to their individual celebration – all with their own bespoke details. The classic colour white was a popular hue for wedding cakes this past season, used as a base colour together with metallic accents, colourful floral details or used in an ombré colour scheme.

We also saw a twist on the trendy naked-cake & buttercream combination, a favourite is the contrasting use of chocolate sponge & cascading vibrant and multi – coloured florals.
