The 5 Hottest Wedding Cake Trends for 2014

Every foodie knows that it’s not just the dress you have to say yes to... it’s that plus the stationary, the napkins, the vows, the menu and (pause for a new breath) the cake. Whether you are a glamazon with a love for all things lux or a down-to-earth maven with a whole-hearted craving for all things woodsy – these five wedding cake trends will leave you completely and utterly... falling in love. 

Musing metallic

Metallic stationery might be front and center this season, but this bold and glamorous trend looks absolutely regal on a cake that is destined for “I do.” Go bold with an art deco finish in brazen brass or keep it simplistic and classy with a dusting of edible glitter. Think chic sophisticate... not over-the-top tacky. Our favorite styles pay homage to old Hollywood with deep metallic shades and noticeable textures that will have your guests asking: “Dahling, where did you get that fabulous cake?”

In the buff

What could be sweeter than a “naked cake” for your rustic nuptials? Absolutely nothing, that’s what. This cake idea is so far off the beaten path that it’s not only for the bride who thinks out of the box... but for the bride that says “to heck with the box!” So what’s in a naked cake, you ask? A bit of icing to hold each layer together and perhaps a sprinkling of berries and powdered sugar.

Monochrome sophistication

What’s black and white and stylish all over? The modern monochrome cake trend. It’s equal parts sophisticated and Monday-morning-in-Manhattan. Pair picture perfect trend with bold pops of color for a show stopping after wedding soiree that perfectly balances the yin and yang of your union.

Fanciful florals

Bright and full floral wedding cakes are a big hit with brides this year. Think feminine with a touch of Coachella boho chic. Though we’ve seen this trend done up in many varying styles our favorite features overflowing blooms that grow wild on each layer and work to create a free-form look.

Romantic ruffles

Looking for an unmistakable air of elegance? Something to really wow them? A romantic ruffle cake will leave you (and them!) swooning. Light, wispy and reminiscent of a Vera Wang bridal gown fresh off the runway, each ruffle is crafted in buttercream... but you wouldn’t know it was edible if you weren’t just handed a fork.
