There are a multitude of trends in bridal fashion, from wedding dresses, shoes or makeup, to the decoration of the wedding. But, what happens with the cakes and sweets of the ceremonies? Believe it or not, they are just as important as each other element of a wedding, and of course, there are also different trends for each season.
For this reason, here at Perfect Venue, we have decided to group together the best trends for wedding cakes in 2019. I am sure that at least one will help you choose the style which most suits your taste and type of wedding that you want to have. Take a pen and paper, and let’s begin!
The classic minimalist cake, usually all in white, will never go out of style. However, over the years they have been adapting and modifying to new trends and now we can find them with avant-garde touches. Of course, these details that are included, should never overshadow the rest of the cake.
The colour nude or dusty rose is the new white. Depending on the style and theme of the wedding, you will have some amazing additions to the cake, such as pearls or some small detail. Undoubtedly, this is one of the great trends for 2019 wedding cakes.
The elements and colours of Mother Earth and nature will also be very present in the cakes of 2019. Light-blue as the sky, deep blue as the sea, brown as the earth or green as the trees. Taking the current state of nature and the surroundings for inspiration, it is more and more commonplace that the bride and groom choose these tonalities for their wedding cake.
The wonderful twenties have returned, not only to wedding dresses, but also to bridal bakery. If you want to bet on a chic and very romantic cake, the well-known shabby chic style is yours. Ties, lace, pearls and embossing like you’ve never seen them before.
Layers and ruffles
A lot of the time pastry and bridal sewing go hand in hand. The result is more than evident, one of the major trends of this season will be the wedding cakes with several sweet layers, in an apparent sense of movement, emulating the skirts and ruffles of the wedding dresses.
One of the biggest trends of 2019 is to use the vivid colors of the rainbow as a reference for the cakes. They can be included in colorful retro gadgets, flowers, butterflies with embossing or be hidden in the layers of multicolored cake that form the overall cake.
Fondant is one of the quintessential ingredients of current wedding cakes. Thanks to its versatility, if you work in depth with it, it can give great results. Among them, the now so in trend ‘marble cake’.
The marble cake is the great trend of 2019 in this way. Its name is due to the similar appearance it has with this natural stone. How? Thanks to a smooth base of this sugar painted with a mixture of colors, it manages to look like the tonalities of marble.
Say goodbye to the typical and classic dolls of the bride and groom on top of the cake and welcome more original and personal alternatives. Known as cake toppers, these are a trend that came from the United States to stay and that in many weddings has already ousted the typical figures mentioned above. Instead, your names, custom phrases or message with which you want to decorate the cake.
