Oh wedding cake, we will never stop loving you! But whether we’re talking about the fillings and frostings or gorgeous decorations, this spring’s trends are going to make it mighty hard to say “I Do” to just one.
Take those show-stopping sugar blooms one step farther with extra foliage! Be on the lookout this spring for cakes with heavy foliage accents, fresh green palettes, or leafy designs.
You might even spot some fresh herb-inspired decorations. Rosemary is one of our favourites because of its feathery, plume-like appearance.
Shine with Sequins.
More and more brides are using silver and gold accents to add some sparkle to their big day, and the cake is no exception.
are the way to go here and don't be scared to go bold, coating an entire tier in a layer of twinkly bits. Another option: create custom shaped sequins by painting slivered almonds or small fondant cutouts with lustre dust.
Sealed With A Kiss
A cake that matches your invites?
Edible wax seals Whether you’re having a small reception or just want to save some money, a petite cake may be just the ticket. More brides are opting to show off their cake style without three tiers or lots of fuss. We love a small, semi-naked cake piled with fresh flowers and maybe even a personalized topper.

Bigger Isn’t Better
The soft and romantic strokes of watercolour paint are perfect for weddings. And brides are taking note: This artistic style is showing up on invites, signage and, yes, cakes. Watercolour washes on a cake can be as bold or as subtle as you want, and also make a beautiful backdrop to other decorations like vibrant flowers, fruits and foliage.

Sara, the owner of Trusted, was looking for a chef to come to her home to cook for the Trusted team Christmas party on a Saturday night in December 2016. After calling around to see who offered this service, a chef friend of Sara's recommend Heather. We were glad she did! The menu options were delicious and beautifully presented, the service was outstanding and it was great that the kitchen was sparkling clean and all pots washed when she left! The meal for 12 was a talking point for weeks after! We found Heather to be accommodating, efficient and the experience really added a luxurious and delicious touch to the teams Las Vegas Murder Mystery themed party!
We are far from the only clients that have had a great experience with Chef de Partie, hear from Carol below.
Heather was thoroughly professional yet relaxed while serving a delicious brunch in our home for a significant birthday. We enjoyed chatting with family and friends while she and Maggie quietly served a stellar meal. Along with all the classics, the Bannock and Saskatoon berry preserves were tasty world-famous-in-Saskatchewan menu additions.
Heather provided all linens, flatware, stemware and crockery, deftly handling all prep and clean up. It doesn’t come better than this for attentive in-home catering. Thank you so much for making a special occasion memorable! "Carol Smith, Saskatoon"
