Definitely one of the more delicious aspects of your wedding day, choosing a cake (and tasting some) can be one of the most fun parts of planning your big day! Often, however, it’s not just the flavour that counts, but also the visual impression a stunningly decorated cake can make on your guests! At The Insurance Emporium, we like to keep up with the latest developments. Which is why we’ve come up with these five amazing wedding cake ideas!
1. Hand Painted
To make your cake truly unique, why not ask your baker to hand paint your tiers? Floral and Moroccan-style tile motifs are set to be particularly popular in 2019. You could also incorporate text into the design to lend a particularly personal touch!
2. Black and metallic
If you really want to go bold with your cake, you could follow the trend for contrasting metallic and black! Set to become popular this year are rose gold, bronze and copper colours, rather than gold and silver, which could work especially well for autumnal nuptials.
For couples sticking to a tighter budget, a single-tiered cake might be really effective. There’s been a rise over the past few years in simpler, no frills bakes such as naked cakes, so sticking to one layer could tie in with this nicely. However, just because it’s a single tier, don’t feel you can’t get adventurous with flavour!
4. Geometric shapes
Make your cake stand out with eye-catching geometric shapes! Rather than traditional round cakes, you could opt instead for triangles or hexagons. Alternatively, decorate your layers with bold shapes and colours, either in icing – or hand painted directly onto your icing base.
One of the biggest trends at the moment seems to be for serving alternatives to the traditional wedding cake. A doughnut tower could be a great replacement! They can be much cheaper, as well as easy to assemble. You could also choose a variety of different styles and flavours to mix it up and give your guests more to choose from!
Whatever form your wedding cake might take, the main thing is to get the most from your big day! If you’re planning your wedding then you might want to consider taking out wedding insurance. The Insurance Emporium’s UK and Overseas Wedding Insurance starts with just a one-off payment. With seven different levels of cover, and benefits such as Wedding Rings, Flowers, Cake and Financial Failure Of Suppliers as standard, your big day could taste even sweeter!
