Metallic cakes are showy and glamorous. They catch the eye and mesmerize. If you want could do just one layer or if you’re in to impress do the whole thing in gold or silver decorating it with frills and flowers. Metallic can be the frosting or edibles beads and glitter.

Artful cakes are becoming more popular. You can paint anything and everything you want on your cake from beautiful or funny illustrations to watercolor stains. These cakes are definitely to make a lasting impression on guests and are perfect for taking pictures.
Another cake trend for those who like everything unusual is ombre. Ombre has taken all spheres from fashion to wedding cakes. Since these are colored cakes just choose a main color from your wedding color scheme for the cake. Or if your wedding is totally white then opt for a white cake with some neutral color for an ombre effect like grey. A bright colored cake will add a splash of color to your neutral wedding though.
Rustic wedding cakes like naked ones are becoming more preferable today. They are either made to look after wood or presented on a slab of natural wood. If you like everything natural or if you are looking for a fitting cake for your eco-friendly wedding then that could be a perfect option.
