This couple put their first dance lyrics on their wedding cake made by The Bake Works in Northfield, New Jersey. We are loving this creative wedding cake idea and the ideas are endless: put your first dance lyrics, wedding vows, favorite poem, favorite Bible verse, or anything else that means something to you two.

2017 Wedding Cake Trends: Woodsy

One of the hottest wedding cake trends for the rest of 2016 and 2017 in the Philadelphia area is the woodsy or woodland trend. Expect to see lots of cakes that look like birch or bamboo trees. Another take on this trend are cakes that feature bits of unexpected nature in them-think vines, twigs, or leaves.  For a whimsical take, use cake toppers that feature birds, owls, squirrels, foxes, and other woodland creatures. The cake stand can also play a big role in tying the look together-opt for moss or rustic wooden stands.  The whole look is very earthy and great for those wanting a rustic feel.

2017 Wedding Cake Trends: Ombre Wedding Cakes

One of the hottest wedding cake trends for the rest of 2016 and 2017 in the Philadelphia area is ombre.  Ombre has been trendy the last few years and is still going strong.  Ombre, which is where the cake goes from light to a darker color, allows couples to have color on a cake without worrying about the color being overpowering.  You can opt for an entire ombre cake, just a layer of ombre, or ombre in details like polka dots or cascading flowers.
