Interesting trends in Wedding Cake design


Traditional designs for wedding cakes will always be around and matching the decorations to the bridal bouquet is an all time favourite, but current trends are limitless!

Lace is hot for wedding dresses this year, so why not have it on your cake?
Current wedding cake design is also about texture: the effect of ruffles on the sides and the ombre shading both have a stunning effect without the need for further decoration.

Oversized flowers, positioned asymmetrically look dramatic.
