by BridalPulse

These days, wedding cakes are more than just three-tiered traditional white cakes with sugar flowers. There are so many unique and show-stopping options out there when choosing your wedding cake. Should you go with a naked cake or a tower of cupcakes? If you’re a fashion-forward couple who likes keeping up with the latest wedding trends, check out this season’s top most popular wedding cakes!

1) Woodland Wedding Cakes

Give your wedding cake a garden fresh look by adorning it with beautiful blooms and foliage. If you’re going for an all-natural wedding cake look, skip the frosting and try a naked cake!

2) Towers of Treats

These days, couples have been opting out of the traditional wedding cake in favor of mini desserts! If you want to do something completely different, try a tower of treats. Cupcakes, mini cakes, and even doughnuts are becoming very popular in the wedding world.

4) Metallic Details

Metallic cakes are both modern and glamorous! They’re perfect for a stylized glam, art-deco or old Hollywood look. Try adding metallic details on an entire tier or if that’s too much glitz – try adding it on flower adornments.

5) Black Cakes

Black cakes are one of the biggest trends – and we can see why! When we think of weddings, we don’t normally think of black, but these cakes are super eye-catching and unusual. They add elegance and glamor and are perfect for the sophisticated look you might be going for.
