Wedding Cake Trends for 2024

In 2024, couples are embracing a fusion of timeless elegance and modern cake design in their choice of wedding cake.

Peach Fuzz

As always, couples are taking inspiration from the Pantone colour of the year. The colour of 2024 is “Peach Fuzz” which is a warm and cosy shade that falls in between pink and orange. With its light and airy feel, Peach Fuzz is a stunning shade to select for your wedding. 


There are plenty of ways to integrate peach fuzz into your wedding cake, from delicate peach-toned icing to intricate floral decorations, the use of Peach Fuzz adds a touch of sophistication and sweetness to your wedding day!


While Peach Fuzz is undeniably captivating, remember, moderation is key. Too much of this shade can feel overwhelming, so strike a balance with crisp whites, touches of mint green, or even a hint of gold for a truly enchanting effect.

Cake Meadows

A trend that has taken Instagram by storm is the cake meadow. The cake meadow concept brings the outdoors inside, turning the cake table into a stunning display of floral elegance. This cake display idea places your cake amid a whimsical arrangement of the prettiest blooms and fresh foliage creating a dreamy planted or 'meadow' like effect.


Wedding Dress Inspired Cakes

Don’t mistake this trend for having a cake that looks like a dress! It’s about the design of your cake being inspired by elements of your dress. Imagine a cake adorned with delicate lace patterns, replicating the bow of your dress on your cake or using ruffle to mimic the ruffles of your dress. It's the ultimate way to tie together your wedding look with the centrepiece of your celebration – your cake.

Another trend I am seeing is the return of the ruffle! This year is all about adding a touch of whimsy and sophistication. The icing ruffle is still popular - with their playful and romantic vibe, they create a soft and flowing aesthetic that adds a dreamy dimension to the cake. I’ve seen a big increase in enquiries for a cakes that incorporate wafer or rice paper texture; these bring a delicate and ethereal quality, offering a fine, almost lace-like texture to the cake's surface. Whether you're aiming for a boho-chic celebration or a more refined affair, textured wedding cakes are the perfect canvas to turn your cake dreams into a delicious reality. 

So, whether you're vibing with Peach Fuzz perfection, dreaming of a cake meadow, wanting a slice of wedding dress glamour, or craving a textured masterpiece,  2024 is all about making your wedding cake as unique as your love story.
