Winter Wedding Trends in 2017: Cozy Cable-Knit Sweater Cakes
If you’re planning a winter wedding, you’re probably anticipating the cake tasting and picking part. You’ll see lots to choose from; all cakes are different. Some cakes are decorated with intricate designs and dainty details, and that seems to be where the wedding cake trend is heading in 2017. The hottest winter wedding cake trend right now? Sweater cakes!
Recently, more and more bakers involved with the wedding industry are creating wedding cakes sculpted to look exactly like your favorite cable-knit sweater. They’re using fondant to artistically showcase the tiny details of your beloved winter sweater to incorporate into your special winter wedding. The reason? Sweater cakes add texture and complexity to an otherwise white, simple wedding cake. Also, sweaters are symbolic for warmth and comfort, and that correlates perfectly for a winter wedding.
Other optional add-on details trending with the cakes include:
Colorful flowers, which gives the cake a pop of color and distinction.
Candy pearls for a touch of elegance.
Sweater pom poms and string to give that authentic sweater look.
Greenery or faux bark on the bottom for an earthy feel.
Stars and other shapes in the middle.
Very light pastel colors for the whole (ex. light pink and baby blue).
Plaid (ex. Burberry) designs mixed with the sweater components.
Bold colors (ex. red) and fun cliché sweater animals (ex. deer).
Wedding trends, like the seasons, are constantly changing. A winter wedding and cake may not be for everyone, but for brides and grooms who adore white snowflakes, sipping hot cocoa, bundling up, and getting warm in their favorite sweater; it’s a fun, frosty, feature to show off in 2017.
