Read about what Tree House Cakes has to say about next years wedding cakes and what to look out for!
A cake is a huge part of wedding traditions and should be an integral part of a couple's special day. Whilst I like couples to be as adventurous as possible when it comes to their cake, there's still a huge demand for semi-naked and simple but classy buttercream decoration. It's the little touches that make it that more special to the couple. This could include the same flowers as the bouquet, fruits of the season or any other embellishments.
For 2020 and 2021 my experience so far is that couples are becoming more daring with their designs. We have cruise ship-themed cakes, tree trunks, Alice In Wonderland, Peaky Blinders and two-sided cakes with the couple having one side of the cake each representing their styles, hobbies and interests.
Colours of decoration are important if you want them to match the theme, so the cake designer needs to liaise with the venue dresser and florist. Whilst this year coral is the colour, it's down to personal choice. Flavours are huge with pink champagne, white chocolate and raspberry being popular but the regular lemon, chocolate, vanilla are still the staple requests. But why not try carrot, toffee and prosecco flavoured cake with pink lemonade buttercream as alternatives and many other combinations that your cake designer should advise on?
