Long gone are the days when wedding cakes comprised of a boring white structure decorated in a classic design. Nowadays brides are going all out with their wedding themes, hence opting for cakes to suit the same. Moreover, they also expect the taste and quality to be top notch along with a design which makes for a stunning masterpiece to adorn the event. Here are a few cake ideas which are currently trending.
When this design started trending, several brides got onto the bandwagon of naked cakes as this was a unique concept which was unheard of. This type of cake is not frosted completely or covered in fondant, instead it is left as it is, with the frosting between the cake layers visible and the sides of the cake exposed. However, cake decorators choose to decorate the top of these cakes with either fresh flower arrangements or other added decorations such as chocolate shards and cake toppers.
Although the typical white cakes have been a part of the wedding scene for the longest time, it is still preferred by several brides. They usually opt for the mainstream designs with sugar flowers and lace borders. However, a unique touch may be given to these cakes by choosing designs which mimic the bridal gown or detailing fabrics.
Although sugar flowers are still quite popular, fresh flowers have created their own mark in the cake world. Many cake decorators find it quite easy to order flowers from Melbourne florists to adorn their cakes instead of spending hours creating sugar flowers. Moreover, fresh flowers have a unique appeal of their own as the vibrant colours and the beautiful texture adds a unique touch to the cakes which the sugar flowers may not be able to add.
Half and half
If you and your groom cannot decide on one wedding cake design, then this is the best option for you. The latest rage in the cake world is the half and half cake. These cakes are generally decorated in two designs. Half the cake is covered with the bride’s choice whereas the other half is decorated in the groom’s design. For example; several brides opt for half white classic design whereas the groom chooses a black tuxedo or a superhero themed design for his side of the cake.
Wedding cakes do not necessarily have to be decorated with flowers or stacked on top of one another or on cake stands. Nowadays, brides are choosing designs which are significant to them instead of opting for the typical wedding cakes. Designs such as their future house or a life size bridal gown or a cake depicting the place of their proposal are a few designs which brides are selecting.
Although you might have a certain wedding cake idea in mind, it is essential that you do not compromise on the budget and place the order at a reputed cake decorator. As this will ensure that the quality, taste and design of the cake turns out exactly how you planned.
