Gone are the days when flowers are only used as a form of decoration. Edible flowers can be used as a cake topper embellishment or the delicate petals can be included within the delicious frosting to create stunning floral patterns. Blooming floral wedding cakes are a great way to integrate the natural, botanical beauty in your wedding revelries.

If you’re up for the challenge, an ‘over the top’ chandelier wedding cake encrusted with innumerable crystals set against a decadent, classic white fondant will definitely make heads turn. Go the extra mile and get yourself an upside-down opulent cake suspended from a sparkling chandelier to really enhance the luxurious vibe. #OTTGlamour

Metallic accents have been hugely popular this year, whether it be the dazzling décor, stylish bridal attire or regal wedding cakes- a little dust of gold never hurt anyone! Tones of gold, silver and rose gold provide a vintage, art-deco, old Hollywood style charm. Metallic can be incorporated within cakes as delicate embroidery, embedded pearls or as a gilded ombre look. For a glamourous bold statement, go all out and deck a seven-tier cake in 24 karat gold plated leaf!
