In Ancient Rome, the wedding cake wasn’t eaten but smashed over the bride’s head as a symbol of good luck. In 2022, your cake is more than just a tradition to uphold. It’s a delicious treat for you and your guests to enjoy at your reception, and it also acts as decoration in your Omaha wedding venue.
When working with a baker to plan your wedding cake, remember that the appearance is just as important as the flavor. After all, your cake is on display for a reason. Here are some of this year’s most popular cake decorating trends to inspire your picture-worthy design!
Let your cake bare all with this trend that is all the rage right now. ‘Naked cake’ refers to cake that is decorated with light to no frosting on the outer layer, so that the cake itself peeks through. This look is elegant but minimal, letting the details do the talking. Not to mention, too much sugary frosting can be rich beyond the point of enjoyment!
Why have one beautifully decorated cake when you can have multiple? Couples are straying more and more from the traditional multi-tier cake structure. Instead of stacking, opt for a few single-tier cakes. Not only will it stand out on display, it allows you to offer guests multiple flavors to choose from.
In the trend of straying from tradition, black cake is increasingly popular this year. Despite superstitions, black is actually a great modern wedding color. It goes with everything, making it easy to incorporate into any color palette. To make a bold statement with your wedding cake, choose a black frosting or fondant.
If you’re going for a glamorous wedding aesthetic, the metallic cake trend is perfect for you. Metallics such as black, silver and gold are versatile enough to use as an accent in your already existing color scheme. Get the look using icing, fondant or edible foils and add some sparkle to your Omaha wedding venue.
Embrace imperfection with this cake trend! Frosting texture can change the entire feel and appearance of your cake. Encourage your baker to get abstract with the brush strokes for a messy look that your guests will obsess over.
A great baker is both a painter and a sculpter. Pass on the conventional circle-shaped cake and go for something with a little more edge and dimension. A multi-sided cake, like a square or hexagon, will add a modern and sleek look to your Omaha wedding venue.
Individual mini cakes
Mini cakes aren’t going away any time soon. Save time slicing and dishing out cake when you provide each of your guests with their own personal small one. This trend is so adorable, your guests will have no choice but to snap a picture!
