6 Spring Wedding Cake Trends That Have Our Heart

Actions

Oh wedding cake, we will never stop loving you! But whether we’re talking about the fillings and frostings or gorgeous decorations, this spring’s trends are going to make it mighty hard to say “I Do” to just one.

Foliage Fun

Take those show-stopping sugar blooms one step farther with extra foliage! Be on the lookout this spring for cakes with heavy foliage accents, fresh green palettes, or leafy designs. You might even spot some fresh herb-inspired decorations. Rosemary is one of our favorites because of its feathery, plume-like appearance.

Shine with Sequins

More and more brides are using silver and gold accents to add some sparkle to their big day, and the cake is no exception. Edible sequins are the way to go here, and don't be scared to go bold, coating an entire tier in a layer of twinkly bits. Another option: create custom shaped sequins by painting slivered almonds or small fondant cutouts with luster dust.

Sealed With A Kiss

A cake that matches your invites? Why not! Edible wax seals (made out of candy melts!) are the prettiest little accents hidden among sugar flowers. Just keep ‘em simple — the bride and groom’s initial works well — to make sure the effect is clear.

Bigger Isn’t Better

Whether you’re having a small reception or just want to save some money, a petite cake may be just the ticket. More brides are opting to show off their cake style without three tiers or lots of fuss. We love a small, semi-naked cake piled with fresh flowers and maybe even a personalized topper.

Watercolor Wonders

The soft and romantic strokes of watercolor paint are perfect for weddings. And brides are taking note: This artistic style is showing up on invites, signage and, yes, cakes. Watercolor washes on cakes can be as bold or as subtle as you want, and also make a beautiful backdrop to other decorations like vibrant flowers, fruits and foliage.

Bold Florals

Dramatic floral arrangements are perfect for wedding cakes, and they feel even fresher when the cake underneath is left semi-naked. One thing you’re gonna see everywhere: Large, cascading roses sweeping down and around a tower of tiers. That’s a lot to love!

Next For You
You know the scene: Another wedding’s winding to a close. You’ve probably spent the night dancing (or hugging a safe corner of the room), indulging and gushing over the fabulous couple. There’s just one thing left to do: gobble down dessert. And — if you’re anything like us — you're kinda bored of cake.

Today in cake, anything goes — even at a wedding. So says Bluprint’s own Man About Cake, Joshua John Russell. And he oughta know. JJR packs some serious wedding cake cred, including the towering, gold-embellished show-stopper he crafted for MJ’s wedding on this season’s Shahs of Sunset.

Wedding cakes are typically about more: more tiers, more tradition and definitely more frosting.
