We’ve created thousands of wedding cakes in our 65 years of serving Houston. We’ve seen wedding trends come and go, but the most important thing a wedding cake can be is unique! We love creating custom cakes that fit the bride and groom’s style.  Here are three creative cake trends that are perfect for your summer celebration.

1. Half and Half Cakes

What do you do if you like white cake and your significant other likes chocolate? Split it down the middle, of course! We have created multiple cakes that are this style, so now there is no need to choose just one icing flavor or cake choice. This cake proves you can have it all!

2. Naked Cake

Sometimes less is more. At least that’s the thought behind naked cakes. These cakes are a stripped down version of a traditional wedding dessert and offer a more rustic take on the reception treat.  Floral and fruity elements provide a unique and beautiful decorative element to this otherwise plain cake. This naked cake is one of our favorite wedding cakes we’ve created recently.

3.  Daring Colors

Our final trend is all about featuring bold colors on your cake.  Instead of having muted colors in the background, turn up the volume with festive and bright hues.  This trend is a great way to tie in the wedding theme at the reception and will definitely be a statement piece. We created this colorful cake for a bride who had the same brightly colored and beautifully designed tattoos. It doesn’t get more personalized than that!
