Each year I try to highlight the most trendy wedding cake options and so this little blog post on wedding cake trends 2022 is almost overdue…as most wedding cakes get booked early in the year…but better late than never is what I always think…so.
There is a few wedding cake trends that will always stick around no matter what, but every few years there are new additions when it comes to style, colour, structure etc.
So I want to go through 4 wedding cake trends 2022 which I think will be very popular this year.
This style of wedding cakes challenge the artistic skill of the baker. Using pallet knife technique, the cake artist paints flower decorations on the cake. A specific piping nozzle might also be used.
As always each artist has their own style, which gives variety in this style.
Surprisingly, not all of this style is made with buttercream!!!…I know, I did not believe it myself. White chocolate paste is a stable mix that some cake decorators prefer over buttercream.
But really, whether it is buttercream and chocolate, the finish result are fabulous!
White on White wedding cake trends 2022
Yes, you heard right, white on white!
Many of us still want to have a traditional white wedding cake, but add a modern twist to it, and that is achieved with…well…more white. Who knew!
Especially adding some white textures really adds to the cake but in a more subtle way rather than adding colour to it.
On the image above, you can see some light leafy textures, but also white pearls work really well, and white buttercream strokes.
Semi-naked + Gold Leaf + Fresh Flowers
This is no doubt our most popular wedding cake style. But each baker is different and has a particular style. This just happens to be our most popular cake.
This design of wedding cake is fool-proof…you can’t really go wrong with it. Many couples live busy lives, and don’t always have the time to plan every detail of the wedding, and so sometimes a nice cake will do.
I mean it is decorated with edible gold leaf and beautiful fresh flowers…you can’t really go wrong with this.
To add a rustic look, you can hire a wooden cake log stand.
Bold + Dramatic
This style is for brave couples, it is a bit of a risk, but with an experienced baker, you can really have a nice result when it comes to a dramatic wedding cake style.
And you can always add some flowers or a bit of gold to lighten the cake.
Most importantly, couples should go for a style that matches their style and their requirements. Some couples spend a lot of time on their dream cake, some order a cake out of traditions.
I hope this helps you choose your cake!
Best of luck!
