Only a few years ago, we were talking about metallic, hand painted and half-naked wedding cakes. Well, cakes have come a long way since then and they are getting more appealing, more artsy while looking even more amazing.

There’s a return to the natural look with the drip-effect cakes and the geode and marbled cakes. Another trend that separates these cakes from the ones from past years is the size. We used to see more of the classic three tiered cakes but as the guest list size shrinks, so do the cakes. Be it single or two-tiers, these cakes are true masterpieces.

Check out the latest wedding cake trends. Time to pick your cake!

Latest Wedding Cake Trends this Year: The Drip-Effect Cake

Chocolate ganache has taken over this year’s wedding cakes. Wherever you turn there’s a photo of a tempting drip cake. Drip-effect cakes are made by drizzling a glaze or ganache over the top of the cake so that it trickles over the edge and the drops fall alongside the sponge cake. By the way, ganache is a delicious mixture of melted cream and chocolate. Obviously, the drip cake looks beautiful and will make your mouth water.

The latest rage is decorating these cakes with macaroons, fruits, flowers, candy, and even ice cream cones!

Wedding Cake Statement Color of the Year: Blue

If there’s a color that makes a bold statement, that is blue. More specifically, navy blue. Mix it up with white, gold or silver to adapt it to any wedding theme. Let your cake be the something blue at the wedding!

Cover the whole cake with these sugar-made roses or balance a textured layer with a different (but very trendy) cake decorating technique. These romantic and floral wedding cake trend will fit any wedding theme.

Another one of the latest wedding cake trends are rosettes, sugar flowers and dragees. Delicate white on white wedding cake with textured white petals, and yes, they are edible!

Marbled Wedding Cakes: Hooray for Stones and Geodes!

Marbled cakes have been around for a while but these wedding cake trends are different. The new marble icing effect features tiers with icing in the same color family or in contrasting colors making them more realistic. They also mix gold leaf tiers. Impressive but still contemporary.

Continuing with the mix of geology and baking, Geode cake designs using rock candy will definitely surprise your guests. Rock candy takes weeks and even months to form and the results are amazing. After all, who doesn’t like shiny stuff?

Both the wedding dessert table and the wedding cake, become the guests’ focal point after the reception’s dinner. Therefore, we may find ourselves at a loss when it’s time to pick what to serve at the dessert table and how to dress it up. Don’t despair! We’ve compiled a list with the best tips and suggestions to help you create the most fabulous wedding dessert table ever! Take notes and impress your guests with these stunning and creative wedding dessert table ideas.

The Wedding Dessert Table Menu or What to Offer on Your Wedding Dessert Tables

Before even considering the dessert table decor, let’s go through some ideas to inspire your wedding dessert table menu. We wouldn’t want to have a magnificently decorated table that doesn’t match our scrumptious and mouth-watering sweets. AmIright?

The variety of sweets is truly endless. They range from lighter and less caloric versions, such as gelato or strawberry parfaits, all the way to those irresistible, decadent and appetizing desserts that will ruin anybody’s diet, like eclairs, cake-pops, sugar meringues, cheese cakes and macarons.

But the list does not end here. So, how do we choose what to offer at the wedding dessert tables when we have so many delicious and tempting confectioneries to pick from? Just follow these tips to help you choose your wedding dessert table menu.

1Pick your favorite sweets first

While is true that offering a variety of sweets and desserts will make it easier to satisfy your guests’ preferences, don’t ever forget that it’s your big day. Pick a couple of your favorite desserts (at the very least) to start building your wedding dessert table menu.

2Seasonality Counts

Are you getting married in the winter? Indulge in rich desserts like molten lava cakes, crispy churros, baked apples with dried cherries and maple syrup, Linzer cookies, warm almond cinnamon apple pudding and black forest cakes. Your guests will love to linger at your reception just a little longer to taste each and every one of your desserts!

Summer weddings call for lighter fare like an interactive ice-cream bar, refreshing fruit cups, frozen yogurt coconut pops, lemon-infused custard pudding, blueberry pies and stone fruit pouches.

Take into account the season to decide what to offer at your wedding dessert table. What an amazing way to use the weather in your favor!

3Should the wedding dessert table menu fit the main reception menu?

Not necessarily. You may offer desserts that fit the style of the food you served for dinner, lunch or at your cocktail reception. A French affair may be followed by Crème brûlée, crepes, éclair au chocolat, or mille feuilles – the famous Napoleon dessert. Citrus desserts, plum creams and strawberries custards for a Mediterranean meal. But if you’d rather have contrasting flavors, forget about what you served earlier and show off scrumptious desserts from different cuisines such as Tuscan Biscottis or British scones with butter and jam.

4Go interactive!

There are no rules regarding the amount of interactivity guests must have with a wedding dessert table. Popcorn bars, s’mores bars, crepes and waffle bars or ice-cream bars can provide an added level of fun to a wedding! Surround them with plenty of sprinkles, toppings and a variety of syrups and encourage your guests to be creative.

Flowers and greenery will add a more finished look to your dessert table. Quite simple and all you will need is a couple of friends to help you move the desk to the garden.

3Create your own table

Avoid renting a table by creating your very own. What you will need: some trestles, a wooden stair or a couple of barrels and a wooden plank. Rustic looks don’t need much finishing, glam looks may demand a sparkly tablecloth.

6How much is too much?

When it comes down to how many desserts you will need, there’s a simple rule. Divide each dessert by the number of bites it takes to eat them. A cake-pop is one bite, a cupcake may be two, and a cake slice may be three or four bites. Now, estimate 10 bites per guest and avoid a pile of leftovers while reducing your expense.

Mouthwatering Ways to Display Doughnuts At A Wedding

Doughnut walls, doughnut cakes, doughnut bars and even doughnuts as wedding favors! Let’s explore these mouthwatering ways to display doughnuts at a wedding!

Discover the many ways to display doughnuts at a wedding! Iced coffee and donut bar for an outdoor wedding. You can do a hot chocolate and chocolate milk station with donuts instead.

Discover the many ways to display doughnuts at a wedding! Iced coffee and donut bar for an outdoor wedding. You can do a hot chocolate and chocolate milk station with donuts instead.

All you need is love, and maybe a doughnut. Is there a better way to say “I want to spend the rest of my life with you” than to shove doughnuts into each other’s faces? Probably not. Forget cake. Forget pies and cupcakes. Forget everything you thought you knew about wedding desserts. Doughnuts bars and walls are the new wedding trend. Based on the pictures below, we’re not mad about it. Au contraire!! 🙂

Arguably the best part of this wedding trend is that doughnuts are inexpensive compared to fancily decorated cakes. Regular glazed yeast doughnuts cost $9/dozen on average. And much less than that at my local supermarket bakery. 😉 Not bad when you are trying to feed dessert to hundreds of people. If you are unimpressed by the price, think of all of the ways you can serve and display doughnuts at a wedding. They are a versatile addition to any celebration seeing as they can be displayed as a wall, tower, cake, or as a favor. Let us show you all the ways wedding doughnuts can impress (and please) your guests.

Doughnut Walls: The Next Big Thing At Weddings

A wall of doughnuts- that’s right. Sorry, brides. It’s going to be hard for you to be the center of attention with one of these around. Whether it’s a pegboard wall of doughnuts or a cute display of the bride and groom’s initials, can we all agree that these should be mandatory at weddings now?

Take advantage of some wooden shelves to accommodate your doughnuts for the most fabulous and rustic doughnut wall ever!

Mouthwatering Ways To Display Doughnuts At A Wedding: Doughnut Bars

Don’t want to hang doughnuts on a wall for all to see? That’s ok. They are equally as delicious when served on a bar.

You can make an ode to doughnuts by building them into a tower. Pile them up with a ring toss or serve them with cute milk bottles and a straw or with plain delicious coffee. It will certainly warm up your guests tummies! Setup a doughnut stand next to the dance floor with lots of napkins to clean up the glazed sticky fingers to keep your guests energized.

On top of that, doughnuts can keep fresh for up to two days at room temperature. Let’s start decorating!

And let’s not forget about those tiny bites of sugary heaven: doughnut holes. Like any sweets addict knows, you must not let any part of the doughnut go to waste. Pair them up with toppings and syrups and the wedding doughnut bar is complete!

Doughnut Wedding Cakes: Delicious, Stunning & Affordable!

Do you love doughnuts enough to make them the main event? While some brides use doughnut walls or bars as side decorations, other brides love doughnuts to give them the center stage. And why shouldn’t they? Anyone who’s attended a wedding has had enough cake and buttercream frosting to last a lifetime. Serving a wedding doughnut cake tower will make guests remember your wedding for years to come. They make cake doughnuts for a reason, people. And we can’t think of reason better than this.

Or maybe we can. They can match your wedding colors and wedding style because of their huge variety of flavors. Who wouldn’t want to indulge their sweet tooth in but flavors like strawberry peppercorn, chocolate with pretzel sprinkles, and sea salt and bourbon maple?

Not only are these doughnut wedding cakes super memorable but they are more affordable too. When the national average cost of a wedding cake is US$466+ and if it’s in New York or California, we should be budgeting an average of US$1,200+ on the low end, this yummy alternative is appealing in more ways than one.

No matter how you choose to present them, you can be sure that serving doughnuts instead of a traditional cake will make your wedding just a little more memorable.

Doughnuts as Wedding Favors

We can even give out doughnuts as wedding favors. Is there anything more delicious and inexpensive than that? 🙂

Perhaps you don’t want to make doughnuts the center of attention at your wedding. That’s why doughnuts as wedding favors will be a “hole” in one. 🙂 Every guest will appreciate having a midnight snack. It will leave their sweet tooth satisfied as they drive home, especially for those that have danced the night away.

A wedding favor your guests will truly appreciate and won't cost you an arm and a leg. Great for pictures too!!

50+ Trendiest Gold Wedding Ideas

Nothing says elegance, luxury and glam like a gold wedding. Sprinkle a little glitz or go all the way. Transform your reception into a night to remember with these outstanding gold wedding ideas.

Glam gold wedding: Elegant place settings with red and gold. Deep red and gold embolden the classics. These rich tones will imbue your wedding with a regal air.

Glam gold wedding: Elegant place settings with red and gold.

Metallics and gold in particular have become increasingly popular in weddings. From a single showpiece to an entire gold-themed wedding, gold is easy to combine with different wedding styles. Gold weddings allow you to try different accent colors.

Metallics have made an entrance on the wedding circle and show no signs of leaving anytime soon. Gold will reign over the Parisian-themed wedding, which is back in 2017! French elegance and traditions will inspire you with touches of this timeless color!

Read on and discover the best tips to decorate your wedding with gold.

Glorious gold weddings

According to Bourn Creative, “The color gold is cousin to the color yellow and the color brown, and is also associated with illumination, love, compassion, courage, passion, magic, and wisdom. Gold is a precious metal that is associated with wealth, grandeur, and prosperity, as well as sparkle, glitz, and glamour.”

Although you may be tempted to go overboard with gold, its inclusion in the decoration should be handled with care. The theme and style of the wedding are essential in determining if you can go bonkers with this color, or if you should reduce its use to just a few details.

A Gatsby theme, filled with glitz, glamour, and opulence translates well into white or black and gold weddings. The same applies to an ultra glam wedding. On the other hand, a shabby chic or a rustic wedding could benefit from a few accents in rose gold or peach blush gold, or a dab of gold against teal or green.

Glam ideas for gold wedding decorations: Show off your tablescaping skills!

Gold can be included in the smallest details of your wedding reception. And given that tablescapes are vital to the aesthetics of your wedding, indulge and capture your guests’ attention with a sparkling table decor. Here are some ideas for tablescaping your gold wedding.

Add some dinnerware with gold-colored dye designs. Tablescaping for gold weddings does not have to be about gold charger dishes alone. Spritz some gold on the wedding china patterns or on the glassware rims. For a romantic, modern, and elegant wedding, use white china and gilded tablecloth or table runners.

Without a doubt, centerpieces are the focal point of every wedding. The combination of flowers and their design truly impact the receptions’ decor. Give your centerpieces a golden touch with flowers, vases or by adding bottles of wine painted in gold. Mix in some gold and pink for a softer, high-end look. Go tall for an elegant feel or go low surrounded by candles for a romantic setting. Tuscan-style centerpieces are perfect for a gold wedding. Black candles on golden candlesticks can be a hit.

Gold weddings lend themselves to amazing color combinations

Gold is quite easy to combine. Like we mentioned earlier, gold can be used as a wildcard or as the main attraction in combination with other colors. Gold goes well with navy, lilac, mint, pink, teal, emerald, green, ruby red, black or white. Your chosen combination will depend on your wedding style.

For a spring wedding, choose warm tones like corals and peach to complement your golden wedding decor. Glam things up with purple with touches of green or gold, ruby red and black. Generous, deep colors such as plum and carmine red flourish with metallic accents of gold, brass and copper. Ornamental ensembles and shimmering, classy materials are eye-catching. Superb, rich colors like plum and crimson abound with metallic gold elements.

Latte brown, peach, white and gold are perfect for a fall wedding. Gold and navy are a classic that denotes elegance. Pink and gold or rose gold will give your wedding a delicate, upscale and chic look. The absolute latest trend is to go 100% metallic as it makes for a very easy combination of different golden and copper tones.

Gold in every detail

Your wedding decor no longer stops at the centerpieces and the flowers, but extends itself to the photobooth, the alternative guest books, the wedding cakes and even the desserts! The choice of a rich wedding cake, macaroons or cupcakes must also be tinged with some details on gold. Not only will these details look divine (and some even purely whimsical) but they will also delight your guests’ palates and senses.
