Textures are everywhere. Whether it’s fondant rolled to look like tree bark or chocolate sprayed to resemble velvet, wedding cakes have branched out from glossy surfaces to natural-looking textures.
Geometric shapes are taking the cake—rolled into the fondant or even painted on the cake with bold colours.
Authentic foliage grows beyond the typical eucalyptus and baby’s breath, traversing into robust greens. These bring rustic-feeling wedding cakes into a new era and often include fresh fruit garnish. Cakes split down the centre showcasing flowers in the middle are in demand right now.
From bronze and rose gold to the classic gold and silver, metallics have found their way to wedding cakes through painted swooshes, trim, drips and even beadwork.
