As wedding season 2016 is drawing to a close, the planning for 2017 is ramping up! We’re elbows-deep into the planning for our winter, spring and summer weddings, and the fun never stops! We’ve seen a lot of lovely trends emerge (and continue) in 2016, but now it’s time to focus on 2017! We love cake, and we know you do, too!
Here are our picks for 2017 Wedding Cake Trends!
Some of these styles started to peek out in 2016 and we’re hoping they’ll continue in a big way for 2017!
Water Colour Cakes
We are in love with this stunning wedding cake by Sinfully Sweet Co, a dear friendor of ours based here in Toronto. This lovely hand-painted water colour cake boasts incredible elegance and natural charm. This style allows for a broad range of customization, and can work with virtually any theme. We particularly love the gold metallic detailing on the middle tier, and the delicate painting along the base tier. Sinfully Sweet Co is ahead of the 2017 wedding cake trends with this beauty!
Geode cakes are incredibly beautiful, and deserve top billing for 2017 wedding cake trends! We love the combination of rock candy and smooth fondant cake tiers. Geode wedding cakes act as an extension of your wedding decor and theme, as the colour combinations are custom to each design. We particularly love the beauty depicted below, by Toronto’s own For the Love of Cake. The intricate design, paired with beautiful metallic detailing makes for a stunning, show-stopper cake that guests will rave over for years!
Partial Naked Cake
Over the past few years, naked wedding cakes have made a big splash at rustic celebrations. We’ve heard the range of opinions from loving to hating this trend. Recently we’ve noticed the rise of the partial-naked cake, and we’re loving it! This beautiful design has a great mix of rustic chic charm and elegant craftsmanship. We particularly love this beauty, by Patricia’s Cake Creations in Toronto, for combining a partially naked cake with beautiful gum-paste flowers! This cake is more glam than rustic, and we’re digging it!
We hope you loved checking out some of our favourite 2017 wedding cake trends, and even more, we hope you’ll consider one of these beautiful styles for your big day! Let us know which one is your favourite, or tell us about another cake trend you’re digging for 2017!
