If you are still deciding what type of wedding cake you both want on your special day, you need to take a look at these 10 wedding cake trends you will most likely come across this year. Glasgow-based luxury wedding cake designers Rosewood Cakes shared with Wedding & Wedding Flowers their most requested cake designs for the coming year.

1. Art-Inspired Cakes

Handpainted cakes with eye-catching designs, make them perfect for arty couples who want something truly unique. (Art-inspired cake photo below by Rosewood Cakes).

2. Marbled and Geode Cakes

Geology inspired cakes have such beauty. The geodes are made from rock candy and are completely edible. An excellent choice for those who aren’t keen on overly feminine styles, but these also work well with sugar flowers and in different colors.

3. Watercolor Cakes

The gold and blue shimmer lustre makes this design really apt for a beach wedding, with a dreamy, boho vibe. Perfectly adapted with different pastel colours to adapt to outdoor weddings. (Watercolor cake photo below by Suzanne Li Photography).

4. Semi-Naked Cakes

The semi-naked cake still retains the rustic features which make them perfect for barn or outdoor weddings. In the photo below, the gold dusted macarons add a touch of luxe and keep the cake completely on-trend. (Semi-naked cake photo below by Feelin’ Groovy Photography).

5. Suspended Cakes

If you’re looking for something completely memorable and outrageous, the suspended cake is perfect! If your venue can’t accommodate fitting the cake to the ceiling there are stands for hire. (Suspended cake photo below by Tandem Photo).

6. Staging Your Cake

Showcase your cake by presenting it on a bespoke base made by your florist, or you could even consider decorating the table around the cake with something such as rose petals or tealights to add to the overall effect. (Cake photo below by Tandem Photo).

8. Double-Sided Cakes

This is a fun way to get 2 designs out of the same cake! In the cake below, you will see that the couple had a beautiful floral design on the front of the cake and then had the lyrics from their first dance on the other side. How unique is that?!? (Cake photo below by Rosewood Cakes).
