  • Monochrome MagicMonochrome MagicAnother hot trend in wedding world, monochrome can be seen on everything from wedding invitations to top table settings. A monochrome cake is very sophisticated — and using deep red roses and a stencil lace effect creates awesome impact here.

Such a gorgeous idea!

  • Chocolate VintageChocolate VintageThis exquisite cake captures two trends — one culinary, one fashion. With its lovely lace, pearls and cameos, this is the ultimate vintage cake design, but the confection is brought right up to date because it is a chocolate nest creation. This is for the “vintage modern” wedding; a retro-styled event that also has lashings of contemporary touches.

  • Pink LacePink LacePretty in pink, and adorned with white lace icing and roses, this is a cake for a traditional, fairytale wedding. Fabulously feminine, it would make the most beautiful centrepiece at a summer wedding with a pale pink and cream colour scheme. Make sure your bouquet matches the roses on the cake.

  • Just Add LaceJust Add LaceYour cake doesn’t need to have lace icing in order to fit this trend: how about adding lace ribbon, or strips of real lace, to a plain, iced cake? Sophisticated and minimal, this is a great way of adding a beautiful touch of lace, without going over the top.
