For couples tying the knot in 2015, know what’s in store for you in terms of wedding cake designs. Pick an inspiration (or two) from the wedding cake trends for 2015.
Buttercream and Naked Wedding Cakes
Fondant gives way to delicious buttercream in 2015. An emerging trend, most especially in rustic-themed weddings, is the earthy, homemade-looking undressed cake. A thin layer of buttercream is applied to the cake. The frosting is then scraped off to show the brown sponge cake. In some cases, there is no outer frosting at all. Just make sure that your fillings remain stable at room temperature, so they don’t melt and ruin the look of your cake. Popular toppings for naked wedding cakes include fresh fruits or flowers.
Tiers in Varying Shapes
If you opt for a tiered wedding cake, you might want to consider having tiers of different shapes. In 2015, mix-shaped tiers are going to grace numerous reception tables. For example, choose a wedding cake whose bottom tier is rectangular while the upper ones are circular.
Wedding cakes sporting an iridescent metallic sheen are back in 2015. Expect gorgeous cakes unevenly slathered with buttercream frosting that is resplendent in metallic shades like copper and gold. If a solid metallic shade is too overwhelming for you, then go for a sequined look, wherein edible copper-colored sequins are applied to the cake’s outer frosting.
Decadent, French-inspired treats will be a source of awe for many wedding reception attendees in 2015. Imagine a towering arrangement of stacked colorful macaroons, crepes, and caramel-threaded croquembouche.
Surprise your guests by adding an unexpected flavor to your wedding cake. 2015 is the year of the unique and sumptuous cake filling. Think delectable combos such as almonds and cherry preserves, bananas laced with peanut butter cream cheese, pink champagne and rum custard, chocolate cinnamon paired with salted chocolate ganache, as well as coconut and lime buttercream.
