Cake Trends in 2020
What are some cake trends in 2020? Since we are only halfway through the year, a lot of the cake trends Toni is seeing is flowing over from last year’s trends. She is seeing a lot of semi-naked cakes and cakes with texture and buttercream. These kinds of cakes were very popular in 2019 as well. This year, Toni has seen brides choosing to have more color in their wedding cake! Some of the darker colors have even become a trend for the moody weddings! Some brides want the traditional white cake but have chosen to add fun colors to make it a little different this year.
Toni's Favorite Cake Trend
As a baker, Toni has many opportunities to make all kinds of cakes. Her favorite cake trend this year is the buttercream and semi-naked cake with fruits! She loves when brides choose to add figs, pieces of pears and berries. This trend started years ago but has gotten more popular over time. Adding these things can bring a more natural and unique aspect to your cake!

How can you make your wedding cake personal to your wedding and theme? There’s a lot of things you can do to your personalize your cake!
