Have you ever thought about playing with color when it comes to your wedding cake? We want to mention it one more time, you are no longer wedded to white only. You must have a wedding theme and color scheme. You could always try and coordinate your cake with one or more of these colors. When you talk with any potential cake designer, make sure that you bring along a fabric swatch of a color or two that are a part of your wedding theme. This way they can not only make suggestions but they will be able to match the color you give them. Another hot trend is to make your cake look metallic or pearlized. There are so many options to consider. Another possibility is decorating your cake with flowers. Even though this is not necessarily a trend as it has been around for quite a while, it is something you can use to accessorize. What about the shape of your cake.

If you have always been a huge chocolate fan and you have your heart set on doing something with chocolate, consider having a dark chocolate mud or a chocolate truffle cake made. Have you ever thought about personalizing with monograms. Couples have started working the monogram into a part of the design for a sentimental touch. Some people want to stay close to tradition but at the same time show people they are willing to be a bit creative. For brides like that, you could always opt for cream or ivory.
One other hot trend that has really taken off and made a huge splash if trying to make your cake look like your bridal dress.
