Cake Chronicles: 2016 Trends

Do you have a favorite trend when it comes to the culinary centerpiece of a wedding? Though cake trends do not change as often as wedding fashion and hair, you will still see definite style developments that stand out through each passing wedding season. While there might be countless cake trends, there are a few eye catching cake moments that have risen in popularity over the past few years. Here are some of our favorites:


Naked Cakes: Naked cakes have hit a huge wave in cake trends. This particular look adds a rustic touch and is perfect for any bride or groom who opposes traditional icings.

Metallic: Metallic colors are in their upswing with all aspects of a wedding. Silver and gold touches to a cake adds sparkle and a striking touch to complement its surroundings.

Fresh Flowers: There is nothing that can replace the beauty of fresh flowers. Adding real flowers to your cake can bring the entire theme together, while creating natural freshness.

Painted Designs: Bringing a distinctive design to your cake not only lets the baker truly express their creative side, but it also allows for the couple to express themselves in another (edible) way. Recreate a famous work of art, bring the pages of your favorite book to cake – the possibilities are endless.
