Wedding Cake Trends For 2020 And Beyond

1st February 2019


What would you class as some of the best wedding cakes? A traditional fruit cake complete with icing and a traditional bride and groom topper? They’re long gone. Nowadays when you cut into a cake, you’re more likely to find a different flavour on each layer. And if the last five years are anything to go by, you’re likely to expect a naked cake.

Naked cakes are predicted to decline in popularity, with a trend for show-stopping, glamorous cakes taking centre stage.

So read on to find out The Wedding Gallery’s top predictions for 2020 cake trends.


1. Monograms & motifs

Remember Princess Eugenie’s monogrammed wedding cake? Well following that, we predict we’ll be seeing a lot of couples emblazon their cake with their initials for a chic, personalised style.

Monograms add an air of grandeur to the design, while also adding a delicate and subtle personal touch. This is perfect if you’re unsure how or where to add personal touches to your big day.

2. Metallic wedding cakes

When it comes to the best wedding cakes, metallic is a climber. Metallics have been increasing over the course of the past year and this popularity will continue into 2020.

But don’t let your mind instantly go to the popular rose gold and gold that have dominated for years. 2020 will see them step aside to make way for silver and more muted metallics.

3. Textured wedding cakes

Perfectly smooth iced tiers have been the finish of choice over the decades. But more recently, couples have been open to including different textures into their cake design.

For the best wedding cakes in 2020, we can expect to see a rise in the number of couples choosing to create a delicious cake with a textured surface. This looks a lot more modern than opting for the more familiar, smooth layers.

4. Tall wedding cakes

Three or four tier wedding cakes are the norm. But we’re expecting to see more towering bakes in the coming months. Think six layer beauties that will make a big impact at your wedding reception!

From luxe, tiered works of art and tumbling macaron towers to simple naked and contemporary drip cakes, you’ll be in the right spot to find the perfect brand to bake your dream creation.
