Let’s talk about Wedding Cake trends...


There have been a lot of wedding cake trends over the years but here are my top 5 that I think are so yummy and gorgeous…


1. Painted buttercream. If you want your wedding cake to look like a real piece of art, I suggest the painted buttercream design. This 2020 wedding cake trend is like a 3D oil-painted masterpiece, but instead of paints, your wedding cake baker will use icing.


2. European tile patterns. The base is a simple white fondant (or buttercream, if you like a less perfect look) and it's topped off with a European tile-inspired design that can be done with a brush, stencil, wafer paper, or a mix of all three. This is the perfect design for a traditional, elegant affair.


3. Edible flowers. Love the idea of covering your wedding cake in flowers but don’t want to work with sugary petals or faux blooms? Well, you’re in luck, this is the year of edible flowers. Not flowers made of chocolate, fondant, or sugar but actual blooms that you can eat. I love how they look pressed into buttercream, and I highly suggest embracing this trend if you’re throwing a garden wedding.


4. Square single tier. Single tier cakes have been rising in popularity over the past few years. This should come as no surprise as small weddings, micro weddings, and elopements are also getting quite popular (less people = less cake). These are great for all event styles, but especially minimalist celebrations.


5. Gravity-defying tiers. Typically, wedding cakes start with a wide base and work their way up to smaller and smaller tiers. Bakers are shaking things up this and adding in installation pieces, like a glass orb, that look like they’d throw off the balance of the entire cake but don’t.
