Check out the top 5 wedding cake trends where high fashion meets fondant.
Trend 1: Black & White
A black-and-white Parisian wallpaper pattern is so stylish when designed on a round cake.
Tip: Your cake should blend with the wedding decor, so use the pattern in other places like the place cards or cocktail napkins.
Trend 2: Flower-free Designs
Arts and crafts goes chic as sewing-inspired elements are everywhere. Think exposed stitching on invites and fondant vintage buttons on a white-on-white cake.
Tip: When talking to your vendors, keep the look wedding-worthy by using keywords like heirloom rather than handicraft.
Trend 3: New Shapes
Cakes are scaling new heights -- this skinny square cake is offset by a delicate floral pattern for a stunning combination.
Tip: You'll get less cake per tier because of its slender sides, so this is the perfect shape for a smaller, more intimate affair.
Trend 4: Coordinating Cakes
Match your masterpiece with mini cakes in the reverse color scheme -- this stylish color combo of robin's egg blue with chocolate-brown accents is flipped for added interest.
Tip: Package the mini cakes into individual favor boxes for guests to enjoy as a midnight snack.
Trend 5: Haute Chocolate
You can kiss vanilla goodbye. From a marzipan and dark chocolate truffle cake to designer chocolate favors, give chocolate a moment in the spotlight.
Tip: If you're scared the flavor might be too rich for your guests, serve cake with a small bowls of fruit.
