Delectable Wedding Cakes You Need To Try
Chocolate or Vanilla? Buttercream or Fondant? Two or three tiers? What’s a wedding without the cake? Or more appropriately, picking your wedding cakes is easier than selecting the guest list. There are so many new, innovative, and fun ideas for wedding cakes that finding one everyone will remember should be, well, a piece of cake.
If you’re still having trouble getting started on planning your wedding cake, don’t worry! Here are some eclectic wedding cake trends for 2021 to design the most memorable wedding cake that your guests will ever taste!
Tile-Inspired Print Cakes
Tile patterns are all the rage in the pattern world right now. Having a tile-inspired print on your cake can make even the most boring of cakes stand out from the crowd. A beautiful pattern can wow any wedding guest by just the look alone. For a simple aesthetic that’s sure to leave your guests in awe, try a tiled look for your wedding cake.
Some couples choose to ditch the wedding cake altogether in favor of a beautiful cupcake display! These delicious beauties make the celebration more whimsical by opting to forgo the traditional wedding cake. More importantly, a cupcake display allows you to let guests pick and choose their favorite flavors!
Edible Flower Cakes
Flowers are great to look at and smell, and now you can munch on them. Edible flowers are one of the hottest new trends, and they’re perfect decorations and borders for any wedding cake. With spring coming to an end and summer right around the corner, using flowers for your cake will be the perfect complement to the beautiful weather during your wedding.
A one-tiered cake doesn’t have to be boring. Sometimes less can be more. The minimalistic look is taking brides by storm, so why not apply it to your cake too?
A one-tiered cake will also make the ceremonial cutting of the cake go off without a hitch. This cake style is also quicker to bake than the multi-level cakes, so you won’t have to worry about time constraints. A simple one-tiered cake can make anyone hungry for more.
I know what you’re probably thinking, “a DOUGHNUT cake!? That sounds a little bit unconventional, don’t you think?” Yes, but who doesn’t love doughnuts? It’s unique, delicious and something everyone will love. Why not give this one a try for your wedding?
Say, “Cheese!” Everybody loves cheesecakes, but those are so cliché. What about making a cake that’s made of actual cheese? This one is also a bit unconventional, but normality is so overrated. There are so many options and presentation styles. Do you want mozzarella? Perhaps some sharp cheddar. Maybe you want to add some flair with pepper jack. The options are limitless, and they will look and taste amazing. Your guests will never forget the wedding with the “cheese” cake. Plus, using actual cheese will make your wedding feel like a classy wine and cheese party.
When you think about cake decorations, what comes to mind? Flowers? Cherries? Ferns? Probably not the last one, but they should. Fern cakes can bring a beautiful forest-inspired look to your cake and your wedding. People are expecting a white wedding cake, but the touch of green that the ferns provide will make your cake even more special.
