Guest Post: Top Wedding Cake Trends 2017!

Wedding cakes are no longer classic desserts just like they were many years ago. Today, wedding cakes are real pieces of art. Cake bakers are always trying to follow the latest trends to satisfy the needs of the newly-weds. It is advisable to adjust the design of the cake according to the dress of the bride. White cake fits best with a dress in the same color, beige and gold cakes fit best with a wedding dress in a champagne color. Just like clothing lines change from season to season, so do wedding decorations and cakes.

Here is a small list of wedding cake trends you can follow in 2017:
