The Future of Wedding Cakes
04 Sep, 2020

The Future Of Wedding Cakes

Shared from Weddings Beautiful Worldwide newsletter

Cake decorating artists and related businesses are monitoring how to adjust their product lines and spaces not to maximize capacity, but to ensure safety with the emergence of COVID compliance.  

“An awareness of health and safety will likely have a lasting effect after COVID,” says wedding planner Annie Lee of Daughter of Design, with offices in New York City, Los Angeles and Miami, Fla. “Particularly, venues and caterers will need to take extra precautions like adding contactless faucets, sanitation stations, along with a hyper-vigilance when it comes to cleaning.”

Allison Luckman, president of Allie's GF Goodies, offers the human touch in everything she does. Her products are always baked in small batches and never mass produced. Her happiest days are those when she and her team can accommodate patrons with lengthy lists of allergies. Even brides.

“Why shouldn’t the bride or groom have an exquisite cake just because they can’t have milk or gluten?” she asks. That’s why a gorgeous gallery of event desserts is updated regularly on the bakery’s website.

The Knot asked its experts for the various possibilities surrounding future weddings.  All ideas are possibilities as each state differs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to issue new guidance as businesses reopen. What’s certain is the celebration and joy surrounding weddings will remain constant in months ahead.

Here are six trends for wedding cakes, according to The Knot, so watch closely:

Inky-black wedding cakes

Black is the hottest new wedding color, and it's surprisingly perfect for every style or palette         

(everyone knows black goes with everything). A black wedding cake feels ultra-luxe and

sophisticated—and a dusting of gold trim will infuse some glamour too.

Wedding cakes are incorporating unique color palettes.

Alternative tiers

Non-cakes have been on Knot’s radar for a while, but they'll officially take over this year. This

means alternative tiers crafted in everything from waffles and donuts to cheese wheels (perfect if

you and your partner prefer savory over sweet).

Understated textures

It's all in the details. To be more specific, you'll be seeing cakes with a focus on unique textures in

the fondant or frosting—whether you want it to emulate concrete or another material like velvet.

Structural designs

There's nothing wrong with a cake that, well, looks like a cake. But this year, plan to see more

confections with architectural, structural designs that'll have your guests asking, "Your baker

actually made this? How?"

Floating tiers

Impressive cakes that look like they're doing balancing acts will take the spotlight. Whether they're

floating on flowers or 3-D shapes, a floating cake done right is nothing short of magical.

Single level

A single-tier cake is the pinnacle of chic minimalism. Worried it won't be able to feed all of your

guests? Don't be—you can have a sheet cake in the kitchen for extra slices. Also, a simple design

doesn't mean the flavor has to be boring—use it as an opportunity to incorporate fun fillings.

My dearest Marilyn, it would be remiss of me to not thank you immensely for the exquisite atmosphere you ensured took place. One guest said "the event was simply opulent"! That was only possible because you were significant in pulling the whole celebration together. Thank you very very much Marilyn.

Warm regards,
