When planning your wedding in Cyprus, a key component of the big day is the cake. Loaded with symbolism, from the colouring to the cutting, the wedding cake marks the centrepiece of many wedding receptions and, as with anything so important, trends come in and out of fashion.
These are some of the biggest trends so far in 2018, and something to consider for your own cake, perhaps.
Naked cakesFifty shades of grey
With the bride, the groom, and (hopefully) all the guests done up in their wedding finery, why not allow your wedding cake to go au naturel? Naked cakes are bare of frosting, icing, or other coatings, being simple tiers of delicious cake, perhaps with a garland of edible flowers for their modesty.
Speaking of flowers, cakes featuring all kinds of edible plants are proving popular in 2018. Edible flowers are colourful additions to any cake, while many bakers are incorporating fresh herbs into their decoration, adding both natural colour and a savoury counterpoint to the sweet icing or frosting. Even cactuses and other succulents are finding their way onto wedding cakes this year.
Relax: it’s not what you think! It’s just that monochrome cakes
(that is, cakes decorated entirely in whites, blacks, and greys) have become very popular this year. They look sleek and stylish and can be accented with a metallic shine, or a glossy sheen, adding texture and tone to an already impressive effect.
