Being wheat intolerant cake is a big guilty pleasure of mine and one of the only flower based products I do occasionally let myself have. The 10 second taste tends to out do the day long tummy ache… bad I know!
Looking through cakes I have noticed a few trends, here are examples of just a few. All the cakes features are by local wedding company York Cakes. They specialise in bespoke creations all designed to really show off the couples personality and to reflect any specific theme.
This metallic creation, though small really stands out. This season metallic has been every where. I think that this trend really is for the bride who is going for a full glam wedding.
This cake is gorgeous, I love the petal effect, the pastel colours are a really subtle pop of colour. I think this cake would be perfect for really feminine brides who may be more of the shy type.
Pearl and Lace
I love love love the pearl and lace effect on these two cakes. The beautiful detail and the subtle pop of colour from the flowers on the second cake make sure it is a head turners. The attention to detail on both these cakes is amazing and you can really tell a lot of care has been put into the creation.
Though chocolate doesn't really do it for me this cake is amazing. Chocolate wedding cakes are defiantly on the up with the help of programmes such as chocywokydoda. I think it is so interesting how the flowers and details can be made from chocolate. Lets just hope wedding breakfast rooms don't get too hot.
If there is one type of cake which has come out of no where in 2014 it was defiantly the Naked cake. With rustic theme weddings on the rise these cakes certainly fit the bill. Stripped back to the basics these cakes are covered with seasonal berries and look perfect in outdoor weddings.
The Show Stopper
Having seen this cake in person at the Castle Museum Wedding Fair this cake really is the cake to compete with for me. It has outdone any other designs I have seen. It really focuses on every element for a vintage wedding. The lace and pearls are details which will be heavily featured in my day and the flowers will be able to be changed to match any colour theme. Elements of this cake could even be used in stationary and wedding flowers to really link all aspects of the day.
After all this talk about cake I am starting to get distracted. I am going to have to go and raid the kitchen.
