Pressed Florals

The use of gorgeous, organic blossoms on wedding cakes and other sweet delicacies has become increasingly popular in recent years. In 2022, this tendency is expected to continue. They’re ideal for anything from bohemian weddings to magical garden weddings. Plus, with all of the different flower varieties, there are so many varied alternatives.

It also doesn’t have to match the wedding décor, It’s a unique look that represents ethereal elegance, and best of all, it can be accomplished using buttercream.

Bold and Colourful

Couples are ecstatic to have the wedding of their dreams after so much uncertainty. Many couples are eager to have an outstanding celebration and this is one of the wedding cake trends that will make that dream come true.

We’re seeing more bold coloured statement cakes that represent the joyous tone of the occasion. As a result, the size of the cakes is matching the dramatic decorations. Newlyweds-to-be are going for dramatic colour cakes consisting of four and five tiers.

A Simple Bow

We’re seeing bows EVERYWHERE. From bridal gowns, bridesmaids’ dresses, veils, hair accessories and shoes, the bow trend has crept its way onto cakes. And we’re here for it!

A simple cake adorned with one bow is just the touch of Audrey Hepburn you need at your wedding. There’s just something so classic and timeless about a bow and now that it’s on cakes, we can’t get enough.

A Work of Art

Wedding cake trends that are giving bakers full permission to unleash their inner artists is the cake that looks like a canvas. Often designed in a contemporary style of art with abstract details and layers of texture, these cakes are almost too beautiful to eat.

Your baker may paint tiny blossoms and brushstrokes on your cake with icing and other sugar adornments for a three-dimensional, one-of-a-kind appearance. The finished product is reminiscent of Impressionism.

Some are even untraditional in shape with a more slender silhouette and unique proportions. Not only do they look like edible sculptures, but they also tie in the entirety of the decor!

Isomalt Designs

This is one of the wedding cake trends that we will never get enough of. Cakes designed with isomalt are all so unique in their ways. This type of detailing makes wedding cakes look and feel ethereal, creating a magical ambience for a magical day.

Separated tiers

Even though we are in 2022, we may see some allusions to early 1900s styles with this grand wedding cake trend. Instead of disguising the layers with frosting, more wedding cakes will feature divided tiers.

These cakes have visible pillars supporting the following tier, creating a larger and more extravagant cake tower. Some couples may choose to leave this empty area alone, while others may choose to fill it with fresh fruit or seasonal blossoms to match a bouquet or centrepiece.

Wedding Cake Alternatives

If you and your spouse aren’t big cake fans—or if you can’t decide on just one dessert—this is one of the wedding cake trends you won’t want to miss out on. You can simply opt for another dessert and give it the same attention as a cake.

From brownie towers to cheesecake and donut towers, taking a step back from a traditional wedding cake is more in than ever!
