From tiers of macarons to cakes inspired by rock formations, wedding desserts come in many forms. (And even if you’re still a fan of traditional white cake, you’ve got decorative options.) We scoured Pinterest to find the latest and greatest wedding cake and dessert trends. (Check out our Wedding Cake and Desserts board for more sweet ideas.) 


Rustic Cakes

If you’re a Fixer Upper fan or just have a thing for distressed textures, we’ve found the baked equivalent. Achieve a rustic look by going heavy on the buttercream icing and topping it off with fresh berries, greenery and flowers. 


Naked Cakes

Naked cakes are all about the exposed outer layers. (But you can even go with two frosting colors between layers for added depth.) Then make it photo-friendly with fresh toppings like mini succulents or floral blooms. 


Accent colors

More of a minimalist? Lucky for you, bright splashes of color are also gaining popularity. Layer it on in a brushstroke or watercolor design--it’s artful without being overpowering. 


Geode Cakes

Meet the latest trend to skyrocket on the wedding scene. By using rock candy to mimic a geode’s crystalline texture, you’ll truly awe your family and friends. 


Dessert Bars

Why choose between cake or cookies or doughnuts if you don’t have to? These festive bars allow you to include all of your favorite sweets and give your guests plenty of options. Win-win. 



Playing with gradient colors continues to be a popular choice for wedding cakes. And best of all, it works with various frosting types from fluffy to fondant. 


Macaron “cake”

We love the not-a-cake trends, too. A gorgeous tower of pastel macarons is a genius way to subtly incorporate your wedding colors and give your guests some variety.
