4. Ombré

A high-impact design! Cool, modern and bang on trend, the ombré effect is becoming increasingly popular in wedding cakes. Starting with the stronger color at the bottom, it then bleeds out until it finishes at the top in white, like a gradient effect. Just beautiful!

6. Stained Glass

This style imitates the craft technique based on colorful pieces of glass, which are coated in enamel to create different scenes. Dark line work is used to give more dimension and definition to the designs. If you’ve ever been wowed by the stained glass windows of a cathedral, then consider having your wedding cake make the same impact on your guests.
