Wedding cake designs has moved on a lot during the last decades and now there are not only different types of cake but a whole load of colors, effects and icing techniques. This year we may say the wedding cake becomes a piece of art!
In 2018 you may find a lot of gold leaf detail or the cakes fully covered in gold. The top cake bakers in the UK use herbs and edible flowers, which is perfect for either an outdoors wedding or a rustic wedding theme. And which is perfect for the wedding in Crete! Drips work with any cake base to create something really indulgent. Marbled cakes are in demand as never before.Naked wedding cakes were around last years. What seems to be emerging now is a naked cake base with drips, figs, fruit, botanicals and even colourful graffiti icing.
If you love gentle pale colours, the floral watercolour cake could be one for you. In Crete there is a few confectioners who can provide hand painted wedding cakes.
The CreteWithinWeddings team has created an alternative version of the wedding cake, inspired by Crete. Guess which one of these? A hint: the Cretan wedding cake is not sweet at all.
