Cake designer Michelle Shulman has taken the time to share with us what will be trending the cake scene for 2018!
Taking inspiration from the catwalks and what our brides are ordering,this is what La Belle thinks will be big in 2018.
1. Marble Wedding Cakes
Marble Wedding Cakes have been popping up again and again and are one of the most beautiful wedding cake ideas for 2018.
2. Hand Painted Wedding Cakes
Handpainted cakes are perfect for a boho inspired wedding and perfect for couples wanting to incorporate a truly personal touch.
3. Textured, white on white cakes
From ruffles to hand piped lace textured wedding cakes are both classic and contemporary. A textured wedding cake is a work of art all on its own.
4. Semi Naked Wedding Cakes
Moving on from the HUGE trend of naked cakes, 2018 sees a rise of the semi naked cake – a naked cake with a thin layer of butter icing so the delicious cake peers through.
5. Metallic Wedding Cakes
We are still seeing lots of metallic accents coming through. Lots of silver, gold and rose gold and I love this as it can be incorporated across so many wedding themes including vintage and urban, even rustic. A splattering of gold leaf over a semi naked cake looks amazing.
Thank you Michelle Shulman – Cake Couturier, from La Belle Cake Company for filling us in on the latest wedding cake trends. We are excited to be seeing more of these kinds of cakes hit the wedding inspiration boards. They are a sure way to keep your wedding guests impressed and allow your cake to be a focal point of the room. The only problem is they will look way to good to eat!
