This is great news for bakers who have spent two years experimenting with new cake ideas, ready to burst back onto the wedding season scene.
Much like the foodservice world, consumers are looking to find comfort and nostalgia in their food choices, but they’re also wanting to combine that safety with something new. Brides’ wedding cake trend list mirrored the trend in several key ways.
Classic white wedding cakes are back, but top industry bakers told Brides that embellishments like bas relief carving, pressed florals and abstract or modern art-inspired cakes with layers of texture are trending. Couples that want a splash of color are having their moment too, however, as bold, colorful cakes are the highlight of the day. Heather Leavitt, owner of Sweet Heather Anne, told Brides that her customers are ready to throw an epic party. “We’re seeing more statement cakes in bold colors that reflect the celebratory tone of the event.”
The pandemic resulted in more time spent with America’s beloved pets than ever before, and brides and grooms are asking for cakes featuring their furry best friends. Meaningful details are wedding cake tradition, but in true trend fashion, couples are asking Leavitt for pet odes somewhere on the cake. “We love to hide pet portraits on the back of the cake as a sweet surprise for guests.”
