When you’re getting married, choosing a cake can be the most exciting process (aside from the real wedding, of course.) Aside from giving you an excuse to eat cake at your tasting, the plethora of options available to customize your wedding cake can be something to look forward to. Through the years the wedding cake has gone from being just a dessert you ate at the end of a meal to the centerpiece of the Indian wedding. With all kinds of new shapes, colors, patterns, and materials we’ve got a few trends for 2019 that are sure to add the perfect amount of sweetness to your day.
The Doughnut Cake
This is a trend that we love at the Brides Today headquarters. I mean cake and doughnuts? It doesn’t get any better than that. You can choose from different frosting, sprinkles, and even add a touch of edible sparkle to elevate your doughnuts. In case you don’t go for a full-blown doughnut cake, you could also use them as topping for cupcakes.
The Cheese Cake
Undoubtedly the most instagrammable dessert, this cake is made of actual rolls of cheese. Although a savory cake is a fairly novel concept, this cake works for those who aren’t super keen on sweets. It can be topped with delicious grapes, figs, and delectable herbs. Plus it's great for photo ops!
The Pastel Cake
If you want to do a simple subdued cake but don’t want white, adding a bit of pastel fondant can make a look very dreamy. Topped with golden candles, cute cake pops, and even macaroons, it’s every dessert lovers dream wedding cake.
Edible Flower Cake
We sincerely hope that wedding cakes adorned with florals will never, ever go out of style! For 2019, though, we’re thinking the floral accents should be larger and more vibrant than ever before. We’re talking cascading down the sides, covering the top, and essentially looking like a floral arrangement of its own.
Edible Flower Cakes
Art lovers who are getting married will definitely gravitate toward this cake trend. Bright splashes of paint, 3D painted cakes, and abstract expressionism—couples can go all out with their designs.
