Wedding Cake Trend #5: Cake Trios

Small white square cakes mimic the main attraction -- a white-three-tiered fondant cake with a punched-out blue and orange vine pattern. Blue sugar-made hydrangeas soften the look while simple risers (no plastic columns here!) add height to the display.

Wedding Cake Trend #6: Global Patterns

Consider your wedding cake to be the perfect opportunity to honor your heritage. This pattern, reminiscent of an old-world Spanish tile design, was hand-painted onto sugar plaques.

Wedding Cake Trend #7: Sophisticated Monograms

A monogram this stately -- hand-painted in a scripted style on a beveled gold sugar plaque -- really deserves a regal backdrop. Soft, hand-painted golden leaves, crimped tiers, and simple yellow bands do the trick.

Cake: Jan Kish, La Petite Fleur, Worthington, OH
