Whether it’s a wedding, a birthday or any type of celebration, cakes are the perfect centre-piece and dessert. With so many ways to create an eye-catching design, you can theme your cake around the event you are hosting, as well as have it taste amazing too! Many of us want to keep up with the trends; whether that’s in our furniture, clothing or hairstyle, and this even extends to cake design. In 2019, we have seen the return of some classic cake trends like the geometric style, as well as new ones surfacing like Moroccan tile prints. 

Read on to learn more about the top cake trends of 2019 and find one that suits your occasion to a Tee.

Moroccan Tile Prints
Moroccan Tile Prints

We have seen a rise in popularity with printed/patterned cakes over the past couple of years as they look sophisticated and beautiful. But, in 2019, the Moroccan tile print has dominated the patterned cakes. They add a boho flair to your cake, making it perfect for themed weddings or birthdays.

Combine these prints with bold colours and designs, and you will have the perfect, show-stopping cake! These designs don’t need to be too complex to create an impact, look eye-catching and appealing.

Geometric Shapes

Geometric shapes have always been popular in the design of our clothes, shoes and even furniture. They’re a trend that isn’t going away any time soon, so it’s not a surprise to see them influencing cake design this year.

Geometric designs can be elaborate or simple, and look amazing for weddings, birthdays or general celebrations. Because of the endless possibilities with this cake design, you can get creative with not only the outward design but the shaping of the cake and tiers themselves. With our bespoke service, creating a cake in any size or shape is easy!

Old School Wedding

Why look for futuristic designs when the classic wedding aesthetic is still as popular as ever? Not everybody is a fan of trends, some people prefer to stick to something old school. The traditional tiered, white wedding cake covered in icing is perfect for those who like something that has remained stable in its popularity rather than choosing a design which could be outdated in a year or two.

Just because it’s ‘old school’ doesn’t mean that the designs are boring or straightforward. You can find cakes that look fantastic with sugar flowers or lace designs, or look for something more bespoke. Photos of your cake cutting ceremony will look fantastic for years to come with this traditional gem, and we guarantee you will always love the way your cake looked.

Classic Sugar Flowers

Sugar flowers have always been a popular decoration on cakes, though recently some more ‘unusual’ decor like geodes and geometric shapes have overtaken its popularity. But, in 2019, classic sugar flowers have come back stronger than ever. From watercolour-like flowers to elegant rose designs, sugar flowers have broadened so much more over the years in their detail and design.

At Cakenology, we have many cakes that use sugar flowers as decoration in various styles, so there will always be something to suit your preferences. One of our most popular designs is our Gold and Sophisticated Wedding Cake which has fantastically crafted sugar flowers that create a cascading, eye-catching design.

Geode Cake

Geode cakes first exploded onto the scene a couple of years ago, and they’ve not stopped being popular since. Bright crystallised colours on a blank canvas look best, making an extravagant and striking cake for all of your guests. If you would like a cake in this style reach out as we love creating bespoke designs – it could even be based on your favourite stone; for instance, blue agate, amber or amethyst to make it extra personalised! 

We have a vast number of trendy cakes that you can buy pre-designed at Cakenology, or you can contact us for more information about our bespoke services. Check out our website too, for more information on our business and to see our selection of cakes that we have to offer.
