The on-going wedding trend for 2019 is all about simplicity, cakes included.
Rather than focusing on the extravagant have-it-all celebration, couples are opting for a more simplistic, personal soiree. And while it may sound mediocre, brides are coming up with some really beautiful ideas.
According to Pinterest search results, this year’s residing wedding theme is all about couples focussing more on what actually makes them happy.
So it’s no surprise that they are choosing to make their cake the focal point. Who doesn’t feel happy when cake is involved?!
Here are some of the cake themes that will be big in 2019.
With a rustic, yet elegant feel, fig cakes have become a real wedding feature. This trend takes the naked cake to the next level by garnishing them with fresh open-cut figs and then decorating them with flowers and leaves.
If you’re not a fan of figs, other fruits like wild berries can give you a similar look and feel.
Move over buttercream, metallic detailing is demanding attention. While metallic may seem anything but low-key it’s all about the way you execute it.
Having a simple one or two tier cake with metallic detail is the easiest way to introduce this theme into your big day.
However, if your cake is the stand out feature at your reception this is a great way to give guests something they haven’t seen a hundred times before.
Minimal, white frosting
There is so much beauty in this back-to-basics trend. No matter how many tiers you decide on, or what shape, there’s nothing more elegant than classic white frosting.
Pure and simple, a white cake can be tied in with any theme you have for your big day, whether it be romantic, modern or rustic.
Why not carry the classic black and white wedding theme right through to the cake. This look may seem like a bold move, but don’t let the dramatic element scare you off.
It can be easily softened with decorative flowers, metallic detailing and cake toppers. If you’re after a show-stopper in a simplistic setting, this will wow your guests.
