Are you after the wow factor or simplicity? Whether you wish to have foliage and fresh flowers or traditional white and ivory designs. They are forever popular and far from being dull as you can do so much with a blank canvas. Other options include naked cakes with fruits/flowers, themed wedding cakes and cakes with lots of embellishments and trimmings. Whatever you chose it is all about you
Flavour(s) of sponge:
Flavour and fusions are top of the list i.e. raspberry ripple with fresh raspberries, key lime and coconut and good old lemon. Not to forget vanilla and chocolate, they are still a match made in heaven and everlastingly popular. Fruit cakes are still around though seem to be decreasing in popularity.
2016 has brought an array of designs the ‘au natural naked cakes’ for those that love the rustic look with decadence of fresh fruit and flowers, to the traditional white and ivory cakes with the touch of lace and royal icing piping work or with the use of fresh or hand-made sugar flowers. Even themed cakes are on the cards for those that are quite adventurous.
What really matters is what you envision as your dream wedding cake. Trends are forever changing and as a couple it is up to you to find the style you love.
