Five Hot Wedding Cake Trends

None of which I am in to.

This slide show can be found Here.

Ok, I like cake number 1.

Trend 1: Black & White
A black-and-white Parisian wallpaper pattern is so stylish when designed on a round cake.

Tip Your cake should blend with the wedding decor, so use the pattern in other places like the place cards or cocktail napkins.

Trend 2: Flower-free Designs
Arts and crafts goes chic as sewing-inspired elements are everywhere. Think exposed stitching on invites and fondant vintage buttons on a white-on-white cake.

Tip When talking to your vendors, keep the look wedding-worthy by using keywords like heirloom rather than handicraft.

Trend 3: New Shapes
Cakes are scaling new heights -- this skinny square cake is offset by a delicate floral pattern for a stunning combination.

Tip You'll get less cake per tier because of its slender sides, so this is the perfect shape for a smaller, more intimate affair.

Trend 4: Coordinating Cakes
Match your masterpiece with mini cakes in the reverse color scheme -- this stylish color combo of robin's egg blue with chocolate-brown accents is flipped for added interest.

Tip Package the mini cakes into individual favor boxes for guests to enjoy as a midnight snack.

Trend 5: Haute Chocolate
You can kiss vanilla goodbye. From a marzipan and dark chocolate truffle cake to designer chocolate favors, give chocolate a moment in the spotlight.

Tip If you're scared the flavor might be too rich for your guests, serve cake with a small bowls of fruit.
