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.

Geode Cake

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.

Watercolor Cake

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.

Drip Cake

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.

We hope the photos above will make your wedding cake selection easy as cake! If you have already chosen your wedding cake, we’d love to hear which you chose!

Wedding Cake Trends

This year we’ve seen a lot fun wedding cake trends! These trends will likely continue into 2020. We will take a look at which wedding cake trends couples are choosing.

The fern is taking over the ever popular eucalyptus greens we see on cakes. The fern gives your cake an elegant rustic appeal. This is great if you still want the all white butter cream cake, but with a fun twist.

Another fun wedding cake trend we’ve seen is the donut cake! Donuts are like cake right? Why not have them for your wedding cake and displayed gorgeously. Now this can mean anything from a donut wall, which is still a fan favorite, to a cake in the shape of donuts, to tiers of donuts on plates that look like a cake. You get to be super creative with flavors that every guest will love!

If you don’t like going over the top, why not try the one tier wedding cake? It’s simple, elegant and you can even dish up a few different flavors if you can’t decide which ones you want! A great way to display several cakes on a table for the picky eater in your family. Or you can even have the single tier cakes shaped into designs like fancy hats or fruits.

No matter what kind of wedding cake trend you follow, budget is always a factor. A set of single tier cakes may be a little more cost efficient than a huge show stopper. But there’s a wedding cake for every bride and at the end of the day it’s the taste that matters! Have fun trying new flavors and talking to vendors to see which will fit your needs.
