This is the time of year where I find myself designing more cakes in our wintry town of Jackson Hole than actually creating them. With that in mind, today we are looking a look at our favorite 2016 cake trends.

 

 

Add a Little Color

We LOVE color! And not so secretly hope that this cake trend never goes away.

Metallic Gold

Whether it is small gold details or the entire cake has a metallic glow. This trend is sure to create a statement at your wedding.

This year couples are adding personal touches to their sweet treat by having their favorite quotes hand painted into the design.

Painted Cakes

Painted Cakes are our hands down, our favorite trend of the 2016 wedding season. It’s the perfect way to add personal touches and create a one of a kind piece.
