Wedding Cake Trends: 2019

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 trends are in wedding cakes, 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.

On trend: rose gold balloons, cake decorations & partyware

Rose gold has always been a popular colour, but recently this colour has exploded everywhere around us. From watches to home accessories, using rose gold adds a touch of warmth.

What’s not to love about this gorgeous metallic colour. It’s classic and timeless. The soft pink adds a touch of luxury and class to everyday items.

Rose gold is warmer than silver and softer than gold and it is certainly feminine.

We have a great new range of rose gold balloons in store – including large foil helium balloon numbers, perfect for any age.

Plus, we have rose gold hearts, stars and circle balloons which can be personalised with any name or message.

We also have a range of edible metallic paints which can be used for cake decorating and adding that finishing touch to your cakes.

Having a party? We have napkins, paper plates and cups and lovely metallic rose gold tablecloths.

What better way to finish off a cake…a beautiful, diamante encrusted rose gold cake topper pick. We have 18’s and 21’s in store. Plus, you’ll also find a beautiful Mr & Mrs wedding cake topper in store.

Making cupcakes? we have these lovely rose gold cupcake / muffin cases available. Perfect for adding a touch of glamour to those tasty cupcakes.

Inspiration: Unicorn Cakes

Magical, mythical, beautiful – unicorns and unicorn cakes are certainly a trend taking Britain by storm.

Unicorns are majestic creatures known for bringing a touch of magic and sparkle. Those growing up in the 80’s will remember She-Ra had a unicorn; they featured in Dungeons & Dragons and more recently in Despicable Me when Agnes wins a fluffy unicorn at the fair.

We are asked frequently at the moment to recreate the magic of these creatures in a cake – we love creating them as they are cute and of course, contain rainbows!

We can create a one-tier cake to feed about 20-30 people, or if you’re having a big party, why not go for a two-tier cake with added rainbow sprinkles.

For an added touch of colour, why not ask us for a rainbow sponge cake inside – it has such a wow-factor!

Or why not go for a model unicorn, sitting pretty atop a simple but tasty chocolate cake.

If we’ve inspired you with our ideas, why not get in touch and book your rainbow unicorn cake for your next celebration.


Inspiration: Animal Cakes

We love sculpting cakes and creating animal celebration cakes gives us the perfect opportunity to go a bit mad and bring creatures of all shapes and sizes to life.

Here’s a few of our favourite animal-inspired cake designs – from a shaggy dog, to cute ladybirds.

1 – Westie Dog cake

We love the almost lifelike hair on this cute dog and his pink tongue poking out adds character.

There’s something very Kung-Fu Panda about this cake. The black and white bears stand out well with the green bamboo setting.
