All White

Simple. Classic. Chic. The trend of tradition will top the charts and see white-on-white cakes standing tall in 2019. Team your tiers with fresh botanicals and petals to add an organic take on the classic wedding cake.

Hand Painted

From the paintbrush tip straight on to the stacked tiers, these wedding cakes are beautifully decorated with intricate detail. Have an artist bring a touch of colourful finesse to your special day by using the cake as their canvas.

3D Textures

Make your cake stand out by decorating it with 3D effects (pardon the pun, although it was very much intended). Our top cake suppliers have told us that 3D designs are growing in popularity and the Quintessentially Weddings Team are huge advocates for this trend.

Deconstruction and Decadent Displays

Take a tip from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and deconstruct your cake. Fill a trestle table with the different tiers and surround them with mini patisserie, macaroons, cupcakes and cake pops. This is an exciting new way to present your dessert table to your guests, making it more interactive, approachable and fundamentally fun.


Naked Drip Cake

You may have heard of the naked cake trend. You may have heard of the drip cake trend. But have you heard of the naked drip cake trend? Whilst we advise against trying to say this aloud for fear that it’s tongue-twisting effects will leave you stumped, we do advise getting your hands on one for your wedding. Combining two 2018 trends, next year will see the rustic naked cake getting a make-over.

Two Tone and Marble

Prepare to marvel at two-tone and marble. Stunning separations of fondant are taking a firm stand in bridal fashion and the Quintessentially Weddings Team certainly support its rise in

popularity.  As one of our favourite trends, these designs are both decadent and delightful.
