Daisy Pratt is the owner and cake designer of Very Vanilla, a Cotswolds-based luxury wedding cake design and patisserie specialising in modern cakes and dessert tables for weddings and events across Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and beyond. We caught up with Daisy to ask what popular and trend-setting designs she predicts we will be seeing at weddings next year.
"I think we will continue to see a movement towards modern, design-led wedding cakes for 2021," she tells us. "As part of this, there will be new modern buttercream techniques coming to the fore, including textured and industrial styles, such as concrete-effect cakes. Although it's quite an unusual finish for a wedding cake, it's so versatile – you can use the technique to create something super industrial, minimalist and quite masculine yet when softened with pretty fresh florals and pastel-coloured macarons, for example, it creates a perfect blend of modern elegance."
Daisy continues: "Another buttercream style rising in popularity is the abstract watercolour effect, which is a statement look and creates beautiful movement and flow and a growing trend that I think will be big for 2021 is a change from the conventional tiered wedding cake format. There's no need to stick to the classic 10-inch, eight-inch or six-inch formation. A tall slender cake, with an inch between each tier size, looks so elegant. Stacking a cake with tiers in different heights also makes a real statement, paving the way for feature tiers. In addition to this, lots of our couples are also choosing multiple cakes set up - favouring a trio of wedding cakes over a four-tier stacked cake for example. This format also provides endless styling opportunities and colour combinations." -
