In the ever evolving world of wedding trends, 2024 has welcomed a new era of modern luxury. The Kilted Cake Company is at the forefront of this delectable trend forecast, with this year embracing a new approach to modern and distinctive wedding cake creations. As couples begin their wedding planning journey, it seems the spotlight is shining brightly on wedding cakes and luxe dessert tables that areredefining contemporary elegance (and you know just how much we love to rewrite the rules of wedding cakes here at The Kilted Cake Company). Today on the blog, we’re unveiling the sweetest trends that you can expect to see for the year ahead, one slice at a time…

Beautiful Bows

Bows have taken centrestage throughout the wedding industry for a little while now and it seems as though this trend will be sticking around for even longer. From oversized, statement bows on wedding dresses to heartfelt stationery tied with ribbon, bows have taken over on the trend front and we’re not sad about it. The epitome of moder meets classic, bows have worked their way into not only wedding décor, but also cake designs! While they can be soft, romantic and feminine, we also think bows have the ability to incorporate sleek lines and avantgarde shapes, serving up a head turning design that will wow your guests. Picture a three tier edible masterpiece, with a large bow as part of the tier design or smaller bows cascading down the side of the cake for a touch of drama, with the juxtaposition of clean lines against the softness of the icing.

Pretty Pearls

If you have a penchant for pearls, you’re in luck! Pearls are synonymous with timeless glamour and have recently made a grand entrance
into the world of wedding cakes. We love nothing more than infusing delicate pearls into our designs, evoking a sense of luxury and sophistication for our discerning couples. Imagine a cake artfully adorned with edible pearls that have been intentionally arranged, creating an effect that captivates with every tier!
We can even add a subtle shimmer to the cake’s surface through edible pearl dust, offering opulence without the worry of sacrificing the sleek aesthetic.

Luxe Dessert Tables

Perfect for those trend loving couples with a seriously sweet tooth, we can expect to see more and more luxe wedding dessert tables making an appearance at weddings throughout 2024 and beyond. Delivering an interactive, immersive and downright delicious experience, dessert tables offer so much more than just a display of sweet treats. The Kilted Cake Company will collaborate with you to curate a dessert table that encompasses your favourite flavours, fillings and tasty additions, serving up a sensorial journey that will become a focal point throughout your wedding day. From pearladorned cupcakes to indulgent brownies, a luxe dessert table is the perfect way to elevate your wedding.
