Wedding Cake Trends For 2021


The cutting of the cake as a newly married couple is one of the most photographed and iconic moments of your big day. Gone are the days of dry fruit cake covered in white icing, wedding cakes have seriously raised their game.

Here are a few of the top wedding cake trends for 2021, courtesy of The Wedding Team at Delamere Manor:

1. Buttercream Wedding Cake Trends – Ruffle Cakes

Romantic and modern, these cakes always make a big impression! Ombre ruffle cakes remain a wedding cake trend for 2021 meaning you can match your cake to the colour scheme of your big day. Or go with classic white and decorate with blooms, succulents, herbs or fruit. For ruffle inspiration check out this stunning recent creation by one of our favourite Cheshire wedding suppliers Bloomsbury Cakes

2. Single Tier Wedding Cake Trends

With the rise of micro weddings, single-tier cakes have become increasingly popular. Furthermore, make sure there is no compromise on both size and style.

In addition, there are lots of elements you can incorporate into your cake design so it still makes a statement.

3. The Personal Touch

After a challenging year there are so many couples that are looking to incorporate even more personalised touches and messages into a variety of aspects their big day.

Cake toppers are a great way of personalising your cake and there are some beautifully crafted metal or wood options depending on your theme.

4. Naked & Semi-Naked cakes

A naked cake or semi-naked cake means no or very little icing or buttercream on the outside of your cake, perfect for those looking for a more bohemian or garden party vibe. 

5. Wedding Cheese Towers 

It is important to consider that not everyone has a sweet tooth. If you and your partner favour a savoury option, then a wedding cheese tower could be a great option! We’re big fans of Knutsford-based The Cheeseyard and their five-tier Katherine cake!
