Florals – edible, hand-painted or lush botanicals! These delicate, rich and fun blooms will leave your guests awe-struck! With so many choices your head could spin but narrowing it down with a theme – bohemian, modern or classic- will make it a cake walk! However, if you are looking to keep up with the trends Floristsreview.com notes UK cake connoisseur, Rosalind Miller predicts that ‘traditional and prairie-style floral patterns will increase in demand, created in either hand-painted patterns or using real pressed flowers and petals.’

Donuts – a must have! Alyssa from Darling Donuts says that ‘mini donuts have been a hot trend for several different special events, but mostly for weddings, bridal showers and baby showers. Mini donuts not only make a great addition to any sweets table but are a popular and delicious treat for that someone who prefers to enjoy a small bite of a treat! A popular item with Darling Donuts is the Darling tower which adds lovely dimension to any cake/sweets table, whether placing one on both sides of a cake, or simply trying something totally unique and incorporating the Darling Tower as your wedding cake!’ These little gems will be showstoppers!
