2.Eidble Pressed Flowers

Edible flowers  are on track to be a major wedding cake trend in 2020 and 2021. Not flowers made of chocolate, fondant, or sugar but actual blooms that you can eat. We love how they look pressed into buttercream, and we highly suggest embracing this trend if you’re throwing a garden wedding.

Single tier cakes have been rising in popularity over the past few years. This should come as no surprise as small weddings, micro weddings, and elopements are also getting quite popular. These are great for all event styles, but especially minimalist celebrations.
