Wedding Cake Trends for 2010

Cupcakes are cute but a bold wedding cake will really make a statement. Here are 10 new trends for wedding cakes.

Black and White Cakes
It’s for you if: You want that Rat Pack, old-school vibe. 
Here’s a tip: Go easy on the black accents -- too many and it won’t look edible.

The Chocolate Lover’s Wedding Cake
It’s for you if: You always take chocolate over vanilla. 
Here’s a tip: Add more chocolate! Ask your caterer to add small chocolate truffles next to each slice.

Laser-Printed Fondant Cakes
It’s for you if: You have something very specific in mind for the wedding cake – like an invitation motif, pattern, or quote. 
Here’s a tip: Use accent lighting or a spotlight to show it off!

Mod Cakes with 'Tude
It’s for you if: You’re all about a fun and funky wedding vibe. 
Here’s a tip: Have cake slices served up on colorful plates to echo your cake’s eccentric design.

Blush and Gold Wedding Cakes
It’s for you if: You like the vintage look but want your wedding to look elegant too. 
Here’s a tip: Choose colors in the pastel family to maintain that vintage vibe.

Two-tiered Wedding Cakes
It’s for you if: You’re not really a “cake person” but still want to have a cutting. 
Here’s a tip: Elevate that cute little thing on a stand and add candy and other desserts to fill out the table.

Customized Wedding Cake Stands
It’s for you if: You’re planning to have a genius wedding cake (which you will because you clicked through this entire slideshow). 
Here’s a tip: Work with your florist to design a stand so that it coordinates with the rest of your reception decor.
