Trend Watch: Wedding Cakes
One of the most important parts of a wedding is the wedding cake because there are a lot of traditions involved. But this doesn’t mean that you can’t put a spin on things and with these new trends, you are sure to turn some heads. Check out how you can breathe some new life into traditional wedding cakes.

Naked or bare cakes don’t have icing on the sides and the layers are exposed instead. They are becoming more and more popular as weddings become simpler, less extravagant and more rustic and whimsical. Whether you decorate with fruits or flowers, you’re sure to have a cake that is non-traditional and beautiful – not to mention lower in calories.

Kaley Cuoco started many wedding trends this year by getting hitched on New Year’s Eve: one was her romantic blush pink dress and the other is her fabulous chandelier wedding cake. It hung from the ceiling complete with crystals and lights, and looks absolutely luxurious. These types of cakes run in smaller sizes too and hang from a frame instead of from the ceiling.

Instead of sticking to one cake or kind of dessert, a lot of couples opt for a whole dessert bar like you would find at a hotel buffet. This way there is a choice and everyone will find something that they like. If you like this idea but still want to go through the tradition of “cutting the cake,” look into getting a small cake or maybe even a pie, especially if your wedding has a bit of a rustic country vibe to it. Any which way, it’s sure to please your crowd.
