When it comes to planning your wedding day, your cake choice and style is vital.  A wedding cake is an important component for your big day, not only does it have to taste amazing, but more importantly it has to look amazing. A new and stunning style for cakes, is the unique and wonderful water colour cakes. We are loving the soft, fluid, brushstrokes that a water colour palette creates.

The colours you choose depend on the overall theme and colour scheme of your wedding. This trend works particularly well for spring or summer wedding because the effect looks particularly gorgeous when it comes to pastel shades and bright, vibrant tones. You can play with different  tones for an ombre effect or go completely wild and experiment with totally different colours brushing together to create an explosion of paint and texture for your wedding cake.
