Semi-Naked cakes have taken the wedding world by storm in 2021 and, by the looks of it, this trend is not slowing down. With the sponge layers peeping through the fine frosting, many brides opt for this style of cake to match their rustic and minimalist wedding vibe. Much like their full frosted counterparts, these semi-naked desserts can be dressed up or down with the addition of flowers, berries and greenery to showcase the couple’s personality and style.

2. Single Tier Cakes

If 2021 taught us anything, it’s that wedding cakes don’t need to be three-tiers tall to be fabulous. Over the last 12 months, we have seen a rise in more intimate ceremonies. With a smaller guest list may come a smaller cake but as the saying goes ‘good things come in small packages.’ A single tier can still pack a punch without breaking the bank!

3. A Pop of Colour

Couples are finding more ways to make their wedding day more personal and the wedding cake is a great canvas to showcase your style. Inject some colour into the tiers and make that cake pop. From bold and daring (Gothic wedding cake, anyone?) to a more minimal marble effect, the different hues are sure to capture the eyes and hearts of your guests.

Two desserts in one? Yes please! For those couples with a sweet tooth, a macaron tower is the perfect addition to the big day. These structures vary in height, colour and flavours so can be easily adapted to suit your theme and taste. We are obsessed!

A new kind of cake – the wedding cupcake! Since the lifting of Coronavirus restrictions, we have witnessed a rise in micro-weddings! These cupcakes are ideal for a small and private wedding ceremony with the nearest and dearest and can be just as striking as a full-sized wedding cake. Almost too cute to eat!
