November 14, 2017 | nicole

Today’s post is all about what is arguably the sweetest part of your big day – your wedding cake! Whether you choose chocolate, vanilla, or hazelnut almond cream, your cake is going to look as good as it tastes with one of these 9 wedding cake trends for 2018! Which style is the best fit for your wedding?

Drip Cakes

Having trouble choosing a cake flavor? Sweeten the experience by choosing a flavor for the inside and the outside with a delicious drizzle over the top of your tiers! Drip cakes are especially beautiful when decorated with fresh fruits and berries.

We love seeing wedding ideas pulled from interior design inspiration and the marble cake couldn’t be a more perfect example! Elegant, clean, and modern, a marble wedding cake is a real eye catcher!

Black Cakes

With moodier wedding styles trending as of late, it’s no surprise that black wedding cakes will be all over 2018 dessert tables! Black pairs gorgeously with metallic accents, so add a gold drizzle or brush of paint to your cake.

Nearly Naked Cakes

Naked cakes are nothing new, but we’re loving these “nearly” naked wedding cakes that meet right in the sweet spot between fully-iced and barely there.

Geometric Cakes

Geometry is a huge wedding design theme in general, so don’t leave your cake out of the fun! We love the way clean lines contrast with round tiers of a wedding cake.
