“I vow to... agree to disagree on red velvet cake, and to live within the warmth of your heart and always call it home.”
- Rachel McAdams (The Vow)
We stumbled upon this quote recently, and it got us wondering: is the flavour of the wedding cake really that big of a deal? For most couples choosing between chocolate and vanilla is a no-brainer. The thing that does get to them is the presentation.
With so many wedding cake trends out there, it’s easy to get confused. Plus, even though we’d love to spend the whole day tasting cakes―it isn’t a practical notion.Do you feel that way too?
No worries! We’ve decided to lend a hand by rounding up the trendiest wedding cakes this year. These delectable desserts could be what you’ve been looking for.
Let’s have a look:
1. Classic White
Don’t want to go overboard?
The prestigious, multi-tiered white cake is a timeless trend. You’ve probably eaten it at numerous weddings and will do so in the future. This, however, doesn’t diminish the grandeur and beauty of this classic cake. Plus, you can always personalize it with customized wedding toppers, unconventional flavours, and garnishing. If you’re looking for a safe option, then look no further than this.
2. Alluring Naked Cake
Sophisticated, seductive, scrumptious...
If you’re on board with the no-icing rule then naked cakes will be a gorgeous addition for the big day. The cake has a simple yet sophisticated vibe to it that goes with any theme. You can adorn it with striking garnishes like foliage, fresh flowers, and fruits to beautify its look.
The only thing you’ve got to do is find a pastry chef that nails it.
3. Alternative Tiers
What if cakes aren’t your thing?
Luckily, the latest rendition of wedding cakes includes a non-cake category just for you. The bakers follow the quintessential structure of a wedding cake tier and stack them up with desserts of your choice. You can choose anything from doughnuts, macrons, cupcakes to waffles.
The possibilities are endless here. Some couples have already taken the savoury route (e.g. cheese wheel wedding cakes) with this wedding cake trend.
4. Sweet and Simple
Planning a small wedding?
Whether you’re on a budget or not―single tier wedding cakes are a feasible option for smaller ceremonies. The stylish cakes follow traditions, stay within the budget, and don’t end up as chunks of leftover. Additionally, they come in a variety of options to meet your aesthetic sense.
You can also use this trend for bigger weddings by teaming it up with cupcakes or doughnuts.
5. All That Shimmers

Want to make a grand statement?
Metallic cakes are the latest entry to the wedding scene. Gold sequins, edible glitter, textured tiers, and shiny decor―they’ve got everything you need to make an impact. These shimmering details are a fun way to incorporate a quirky element to your wedding.
It’s a Wrap
Long story short, you can find lots of wedding cake trends in the market. You simply have to choose something that matches your wedding theme and is a reflection of your relationship. If nothing seems to fit, then you can always take the customized route to get something unique.
