Top 5 Wedding Cake Trends for 2015
Sequins are going to big and dazzling this year in all aspects of wedding planning. We’ve seen jewels and beads, now it’s time to cover those cakes with sequins. These shiny gems are, of course, edible and create quite the most impressive finish. Decorating every tier certainly gives a ‘wow’ factor, while alternate tiers are equally striking and why not include some sugar flowers for that extra wow factor.
Metallics are really trending this year and metallic wedding cakes are real statement pieces. From gold and silver to bronze detailing, even the most traditional brides will find themselves loving metallic cakes! Here at Sussex Wedding Creations we love this metallic silver tiered cake with a fondant ruffle frill bottom tier which is also all the rage for 2015.
A less formal option than the traditional fondant icing, buttercream is a popular choice for 2015 so why not team with the top trending wedding colour for 2015 – Blue!
If what’s on the inside really is the most important element, a naked cake is for you. This is a cake without icing, a brave little number with all its goodies on show. It was a popular style in 2014, and it’s set to stay popular for a number of reasons. Most importantly, it’s just perfect for a ‘rustic’ celebration in the great outdoors – think tipis, lights hanging from trees and fabulous floaty dresses.
Personalisation is set to be a huge trend for 2015 as couples look to create something truly unique and different for their wedding. Top styles include the couples inititals on the cake or cakes themed around somewhere or something which means something special to the couple.
Here at Sussex Wedding Creations we have also found that personalised cookies are very popular serving as a yummy favour and also place names for your wedding tables and guests.
