2021/2022 Wedding Cake Ideas
Cake at a wedding is such a classic. In years past, people were leaning toward cupcakes, candy bars, and even donuts for their wedding dessert of choice. But coming back strong for this wedding planning season is the classic wedding cake! 2021/2022 has plenty of stunning, yummy, & creative wedding cake ideas. Here are some of our favorites sure to inspire your wedding cake selection.
From the trend of gemstones and crystals comes the geode cake! Geode cakes are easily customizable for your wedding colors. The sparkle, often made from sugar, adds fun and formality to your wedding cake. Below is a geode cake by Erica Koren Cakery. This is just one beautiful option of many options for shapes and colors.
Timeless White Wedding Cake With A Twist
A white wedding cake is a classic option! There are so many variations and textures you could choose from. If you have a lace wedding dress, you can choose a coordinating lace design. If you are having a wedding with lots of vibrant colors, a simple white cake is a great neutral option. For a simple white wedding cake, frosting can be in beautiful patterns without overwhelming your color scheme. The beautiful cake below with sugar pearls is by The Cakery Inc.
A fun, colorful option is watercolor cakes! We love how different shades of the same color, or even different colors, can be blended together in one cake. Often, these cakes pull together multiple different wedding colors making them a beautiful decorative piece for your wedding reception. This artful watercolor cake is by Two Wild Seeds.
This wedding cake idea is perfect for the chocolate or fruit lovers! Drip cakes can have either a chocolate drip or a fruit flavored drizzle down the cake. This is a great choice if you are indecisive as to what kind of cake you want. If you are in between chocolate and vanilla, you could choose vanilla cake with a chocolate drip to make each of you happy. The delicious drip cake below is by The Sugar Path.
