Top 5 Wedding Cake Trends Of 2020

The new year is well and truly upon us, and while some Fairies are off to stress-free start, other Fairies are being drowned by their wedding planning… Do not fear, Wedded Wonderland is here! One of the biggest elements of your big day, and that will also come in to direct contact with every single one of your guests, is your wedding cake! Whatever your taste buds crave, whether it be lemon custard or salted caramel, it is only natural that the outside of your cake, reflects your chosen theme.

Here are our Top 5 wedding cake trends of 2020, to help you make a decision, Fairies.

Hand-Painted Buttercream

Buttercream art is the way to go if you’re after a statement cake. Bold and beautiful, buttercream art uses the white cake as an empty canvas, and allows for endless colour schemes to suit any theme. The cake’s three-dimensional nature allows it to be as abstract as you would like, and can include flowers, pearls and other toppings of your choice. 

Transluscent Waves

This elegant and subtle detail is unique in its design, dimension and ability to stand out in the most graceful way possible. The tulle-like addition of translucent waves can showcase a multitude of softer shades on the background of a white cake.  Its intricacy is sure to bring a classic, artistic feel to your reception.


The use of metallics is a minimalistic yet stylish approach to cake design. Brides-to-be that are after a theme of simple elegance will find that shades of gold or silver can be a perfect fit. A little can go a long way, but don’t be afraid to ask your cake designer to add a hefty amount for a more dramatic effect.

All-White Minimalism

Sugar lace details are a very minimalistic and classy means of incorporating wedding day elements into your cake. Often complimented with pearls and white floral designs, they’re ideal for the bride that is after something simple yet stunning.


An elegant addition to any design, florals have the potential to truly bring out a wedding cake. The most popular floral arrangements include orchids, roses, lilies and chrysanthemums. Feel free to go crazy on the colour combinations; are you after a vibrant statement cake, or a soft, white floral combination?
