The Top 5 2019 Wedding Cake Trends

Each year sees new trends in the wedding cake industry. Couples see inspiration in bridal magazines, celebrity weddings or even in fashion and interiors, which then influences their ideas for their wedding cake. What about the top 5 2019 wedding cake trends?

Modern and contemporary cakes are my speciality and when coming up with a concept for a cake, I combine couple’s ideas with my own ideas. Studying and keeping on top of trends, I also look to other areas for inspiration such as architecture and interior design.

Geometric features high on the list for couples looking for a design led wedding cake. With strong lines, shapes and patterns, the possibilities are endless and exciting. This is a Malarkey Cakes signature style.


A popular floor treatment, this pattern can be customised with different patterns, colours and styles to make it truly unique. The design can contain little or larger geometric style pieces within it but with no uniformity or pattern.


Marble is still popular for weddings cakes, in many different colours and styles. I have been experimenting with water marbling recently and then changing the colours around to get it just right for wedding colour schemes.


The concrete or peeling paint look may sound a curious decision for a wedding cake but the reality is that it works very well. It’s almost modern with a rustic effect, working excellently on wedding cakes.


Whether it’s fabric style prints or prints of skylines, there’s no escaping from the fact that prints work very well on a cake. In fact, because of the endless selection that you could have, it makes for a very popular style choice.

About the writer and cake enthusiast…

Hi! I’m Katie and I have been fully cake obsessed since, forever…

Malarkey Cakes is built on a mixture of all my passions. My work is inspired by my background in art and design and I’m honoured to make wedding cakes for couples in love in London and the South East.

I’m passionate about blogging to share my knowledge and give guidance on the ins and out of ordering a wedding cake, making the most of it and making sure it gets the attention it deserves. I also share my tips on wedding planning and team up with fellow suppliers I am lucky enough to work with and who I highly recommend.

When I’m not designing, making or eating cake, you’ll find me trying out new food in London’s amazing restaurants, drinking great coffee, taking in stunning architecture, on long walks, smashing a decent weights workout or exploring the world.
