The latest wedding cake trends

White wedding cake with coloured flowers inset Q – What are the latest wedding cake trends?

"Incorporating flowers into your cake is very popular at the moment whether it’s real, silk or sugar versions. I’ve also seen a rise in natural, eco-friendly blooms that are dried or pressed. It’s important to talk to your cake designer about what flowers will work in your design as they have to be edible and organic with no pesticides used.

"Good options would be roses, violas, calendulas, cornflowers, abutilons, fern leaves and rose leaves. If dried, non-pressed versions are used, like palm spears or grasses, these should be covered in florist tape or flower picks.

"Certain blooms are seasonal and not available all year round, so check availability well in advance.

"Allergies need to be added to an allergen list as some flowers might come from the mustard, celery or onion family, and some guests may have severe pollen allergies."
