While the more traditional cakes used to be square in shape, nowadays couples tend to ask for round cakes and add personal touches to the finished piece. Many wedding designers are incorporating edible lace or intricate sugar flowers into their cakes to match the bride's gown, while others are getting requests for bold colours and hand painted patterns on their cakes.
HELLO! Online has chatted to the most respected wedding cake experts in the industry who attended this year's Cake and Bake Show, and gave their predictions on the future of wedding cake design.
Not only will we see extravagant and more personal cakes, say the experts, but a strong influence from the leaders in the cake market — Australia and the US.
