2018 Wedding Trends - Painted Wedding Cakes

The traditional wedding cake has definitely fallen from favor in recent years.  We've seen a lot of wedding cake alternatives. The donut cake, the donut wall, the cupcake tower, the cupcake table, the mini cake collection, the cake pops, the pie cake and of course the cookie tower.

Well the new wedding cake trend for 2018 is the painted cake.  Haind-painted and customized for your wedding day.

Cake Toppers

The wedding cake topper was dominant in the 1950s where it represented togetherness. Today, these wedding cake toppers are often part of the couple's wedding theme/style.

Traditional wedding cake toppers depict the couple in formal attire. These days the wedding cake topper can be more comical or represent the couple's hobbies

Fun cake toppers like the one above can reflect the personality of the couple and fit seamlessly into the overall wedding look.
