Geodes
Geode cakes are making a splash on Pinterest right now, and for good reason. Geode cakes use edible crystals to make your wedding dessert look rocky and rustic. They're perfect for brides who want their wedding cake to be noticed in a big way. Create a work of art in your wedding colors and watch your guests lose their minds.

Watercolors
Try a watercolor cake. This stunning trend makes wedding cakes feel more like a work of art than a dessert. Go ombre with your wedding colors or match a shade found in your venue. Your cake will be all any guest can post about on Instagram.


High Tech
Add technology to your cake, like a GoPro. Since your cake is often on display for a while at your wedding, it'll capture some sweet and silly moments you can reminisce over later. Getting as much footage as possible from your big day is a great way to relive your favorite moments over and over.

Naked
Having a rustic wedding or more down-to-earth affair? Try a naked cake. Deconstructed cakes with little frosting and more fruit are pleasing to both the eye and the taste buds. They have a home cooked vibe to them and edible greenery can be added for even more of an old-fashioned feel. Alternate naked layers with iced layers for a modern look.

Metallics
Metallics aren't just for your chargers or tabletops. They continue to be a hot wedding trend, and one easy way to embrace silver or gold is to wrap your cake in an edible metallic or add shiny details.


Candy
Are you a kid at heart? Have your baker decorate your cake with colorful candy, like M&Ms or Jelly Beans in your wedding colors. If your wedding has a bright, cheery vibe, a candy cake will go a long way in emphasizing your fun atmosphere.
