MARVELLOUS METALLICS
’Tis the season for all things sparkly and shimmering. Metallics are a wonderfully glam addition to any colour palette and add sophistication to your dessert table. Whether it’s rose gold, copper, bronze, or the ever-popular silver, a bit of bling is a wonderful thing.

TEXTURE & TRACERY
Just because it’s metallic doesn’t mean that it has to be flat and smooth. Play with texture and form – geometric designs and botanical motifs are on trend right now, while a glitter finish adds a wonderful texture to any cake. Finish with fresh or fondant flowers for a memorable centrepiece!

LITTLE OR LOTS
Go big with a bold splash or keep it minimal with a slender ribbon detail. Let personal taste and your overall theme dictate how you incorporate this trend.

GO FOR GOLD
Opulent and glamorous, the on-trend metallic is amplified by glorious florals for a cake that screams romance.

PATTERN PLAY
Find elements of your wedding that you’d like to amplify – the lace detailing from your dress or a decor motif – and ask your cake designer to work these details into your cake decoration. Whether it’s botanical shapes from your floral display or something that echoes what you’re wearing, it will add glorious personalised detail to a wonderful day.
