Lace wedding cakes are becoming popular with brides who want cakes decorated with patterns similar to the lace in their gorgeous wedding gowns, or the pattern on the china they registered for. Select a detail from your dress to accentuate on your cake, from a handful of simple sugar buttons to the more elaborate white and ivory fondant lace appliqués wrapped around each tier. Color is the key to achieving this trend, which works best on muted colors and with a little contrast.

A classic round cake is the perfect backdrop for pattern and embellishments. This exquisite wedding cake is iced with fondant and adorned with a monogram on the top tier, elaborate piping around a gum paste plaque, plus gum paste flowers on top. The second tier has a quilted pattern with silver dots, which add glitz and give it a fresh feel without overpowering the cake’s design. The third tier is smooth and square-shaped with a gum paste vintage-inspired brooch, while the bottom tier has satin draping embellishment for a vintage theme. The top 3 tiers are all adorned with a crystal band.
5. Rosettes and Pearls Wedding Cake

Rosette wedding cakes—with textured sugar roses around the cake—are elegant and beautiful, but still fun due to their unique added dimension. The one caveat with this trend is to stick to ivory or white rosettes. On top of that, the textured layer has to be balanced with something else, especially if you’re using rosettes on the whole tier.
This Rosettes and Pearls Wedding Cake has buttercream rosettes with pearl centers on the top tier, and is embellished with hand-piped lace, hand-rolled fondant pearls, and pearl trim.
6. Glamorous Gold Tiered Wedding Cake

Metallics aren’t just for stationery anymore—they’re popping up in everything, from paper and shoes to wedding cakes as well. This stylized glam, art-deco, old-Hollywood look can match any style. If an entire cake, or even tier, is too much glitz for you, consider adding a decorative sheen using fine edible glitter. This adds a little sparkle to your cake without overpowering the whole design.
This Glamorous Gold Tiered Wedding Cake is a rustic beauty—perfect for a barn, a backyard or garden reception. Soft mint icing, an eye-catching bouquet of just-picked garden flowers, and gold and pearl details give the cake a touch of glamour and sophistication.

This Ruffled Sugar Flower Wedding Cake is anything but boring! Layers of buttercream create whimsical waves—proof that a simple design can make a big impact. A cluster of sugar flowers adds a touch of tradition. Ruffles aren’t just for dresses anymore, and ruffled wedding cakes are absolutely romantic.

Flowers—fresh or sugar—are virtually synonymous with wedding cakes. The new trend for wedding cake flower accents is clusters of sugar flowers forming a bouquet. Sugar flower bouquets work best with lighter cake shades, like ivory, peach or mint.
Here, this modern square-shaped three-tiered cake is wrapped in peach-colored fondant and accented with a lush cascade of wedding flowers, including hydrangeas, roses, and spider mums, all intricately molded from sugar gum paste.
9. Romantic Red Rose & Crystal Wedding Cake

Sticking to a single color gives this cake a sophisticated look.

Naked wedding cakes—those trendy cakes that are largely unfrosted, exposed, and you get to show off the inside—add a simple, beautiful style to any dessert spread. These bucolic desserts focus on the cake and offer a light sweetness in each bite even with the layering due to the minimal amount of frosting used.
