When you think about metallic wedding cakes you might imagine a gold or silver vintage style which can be the case if your wedding theme is vintage, but gold and silver details and filigree can also have a glamorous, art-deco or old-Hollywood look. The most interesting thing about metallic cakes is that they can adapt to any style and it is what make them trendy. If an entire tier is too much glitz for you, consider adding a little sparkle all over.

Naked Cakes

This cake was already very trendy in 2015, but it’s set to continue to be a big trend for 2016. What is a naked cake? Basically it’s a wedding cake without frosting or icing. But you can add some fruits or leaves to make it look fresher. For a Summertime wedding, berries work well, in Winter and Fall ask your baker to fill the layers with seasonal fruits like apples, pears, persimmons or even blood oranges.

White on White

The fresh new way to do a white wedding cake is to add interesting all-white embellishments. Dress up tiers with details, like piped embroidery, petals, pearls, sugar roses. Nontraditional shaped tiers, like hexagons and ovals, make the cake a little more out of the ordinary.

Among the flowered cakes there are two which are really popular the flower sugar bouquet and the Rosette – rosettes are seriously trending as they are the combination of another trend, the “ruffled style.” The daring design of a cake covered in edible roses looks impeccably delicate, elegant and romantic. The flower bouquet works best on a muted cake base color, like ivory, peach or mint. Finish off the tiers with a gold or silver metallic trim, or even a beveled lace treatment, for a look that’s simple, sophisticated and classic.

Personalized Cake

More and more brides and grooms want to write a part of their love story on their cake. They choose a really simple cake where they choose an important detail that represents their couple. It’s a good way to customize a cake and to make it personal, and can be easily achieved. Did he propose in a pine forest? Include some pine cones. Customize your cake toppers to look like you. If you and your groom have a particularly romantic engagement story, this can be reflected on your wedding cake, too.
