Attention future couples! Because we have researched all the novelties and trends in nuptial desserts and we have them all. It is the perfect year for those with a sweet tooth! This article will water your mouth and with so much sweetness you won’t know which cake to choose. We won’t make it easy on you! Read on until you find your perfect wedding cake.
Far from the traditional fruit or vanilla cakes, the new tastes are going to explode on your palate with exotic pleasure in the flavours of lime, pink champagne, cherry, celery and even pistachio. Addictive!
The famous Candy Bar is already a must-have at any wedding, that leaves no one unattracted. But the secret of succeeding with your desserts, is for how they are presented: in original staircases, on barrels, carts or closets, mixed with other decorative elements like candles, lights, suitcases… according to the style or theme of the wedding. Among the different types of cakes, the following stand out:
Floral wedding cakes
Flowers aren’t just for spring! They are seen at weddings, in patterns, pressed, crystallized, glued or placed, but always edible. The marigolds and lilies take the spotlight, a very original novelty not to leave anything on the plate.
Simplicity is also back, with cakes in a single colour to match the rest of the decoration. It is true that white will always be irreplaceable and fundamental, although instead of using a smooth pattern, this colour appears in new textures. Different techniques and materials, such as the punch technique, or a pastry sleeve, moulds, etc. can create a highlight on the cake. A renewed classic.
For art lovers! Watercolour style, with floral themes, animals, gradients, geometries … any design you imagine can be made by hand, even imitating the technique of glass! An original and different trend that gives your wedding cake an extra dimension.
With geometries and mosaics
Lines that form triangles, squares, rhombuses or pentagons, clearly the forms are fashionable, due to the fact that this element provides a futuristic and modern touch while minimalistic and discreet. From the body of the geometric cake to hand-painted chocolate drawings.
The same goes for mosaics, inspired by the Moroccan cultures that take centre stage in the decoration of 2020, these designs will add exoticness and authenticity, you are seeking in techniques such as glazing, to your dessert. All set to break with the classic!
As you might have heard, bronze is trending. At rustic or rural themed weddings bronzed coloured cakes will be a real jewel. These tones can be used in form of pearls, brushstrokes or diamond imitations, which will make the cake shine like no other, showing the luxury and avant-garde of your big day.
Make use of your relatives! Because many couples no longer want to hear about the corpulent multilevel cakes ordered from great pastry chefs, they opt for alternative desserts that have not been seen so far, using the family’s classic recipes such as coffee flan, apple or cheese cake, doughnuts, rice pudding… Now the traditional is popular!
More and more newlyweds are celebrating their event in the countryside, forests or gardens. Therefore, these nature lovers also want to see it reflected in their cake. This is a great novelty for 2020. Cakes with leaves in green tones like ferns and techniques that imitate moss. A natural trend.
Personalized cakes are also one of the big trends. Such a special day deserves a cake that perfectly reflects the personality of the bride and groom. In this pastry shop they make them according to your tastes and preferences, with different colours, flavours or fillings.
