Say Yes to the Cake: 15 Popular Wedding Cake Trends

Looking for an artistic way to incorporate personality and the latest trends into your big day? Piece of cake!

These 15 popular wedding cake trends are a sample of how couples can creatively express themselves. Color palette, choice of toppers and even humor show off a couple’s personalities while staying on trend. The possibilities are endless!

From simple to elaborate, wedding cakes make a statement. Each cake in this collection curated by our IDY style team is artistically unique, from the subtle texture on the honeycomb cake to the bold shapes of the geometric cake.

One of our favorite ways to create cake drama: layering trends! Check out the video to see ruffled cakes with ombre icing, naked cakes with drip icing and fresh fruit, watercolor florals cascading down square tiers, and more!

Another wedding trend we love: suspended cakes. Many couples are including installations as a part of their reception decor, including backdrops and sculptural elements. This incredible cake by La Linea Desserts doubles is an eye-popping art installation. The details of the cascading sugar flowers and novelty bluebird topper create a focal point that is dramatic, thematic and unforgettable!
