Here at Quality Cake Company, we shy away from ‘ordinary’ and enjoy working with couples across the West Midlands to create their perfect wedding cake. We often get asked what the latest cake trends are ifor weddings, so in this blog, we uncover some of our favourite wedding cake trends for 2019.

Bold uses of colour

In 2019, wedding cakes will become more colourful with the use of bold, bright colours such as blues, corals and greens. Ombre colours can be used to soften the use of bold colours, but still make a statement.

We are also seeing a trend for greys and silvers, especially for those weddings in the winter months. Block uses of grey give a modern look to simple designs.  

Drip cakes

Drip cakes are a key trend for 2019, with the use of bold colours and contrasting drip effect; finished with matching flowers, macarons or your favourite sweets.

Groom’s Cakes

Groom’s cakes are set to be hot next year. These are a step away from traditional elegant wedding cakes to an alternative cake with rich, creative flavours like tasty mocha chocolate or sumptuous toffee. These cakes are often themed with the groom’s favourite hobby or interests in mind.

Circle or hoop cakes

Cakes featuring circles or hoops are also a big trend for 2019. The use of a hoop brings the eye to a central focal point, adding a real wow-factor to the cake. It also reflects the symbol of the wedding ring – never-ending love. Combined with the use of bright colours and a subtle ombre effect, these will be a hot trend for wedding cakes for years to come.
