Minimalist Cakes

Minimalist cakes are simple, elegantly understated and clean.  The simplicity and ease of the minimal style give it a classic & timeless look while making it versatile for any style of wedding. They are also great for anyone on a budget.  You can never go wrong with an all white cake, clean lines and some simple florals or greenery.

Visually Textured Cakes

Adding texture to your cake is a great way to bring color, dimension and style to your cake.  Popular textured cakes include marbled cakes, gold foiled cakes and even cakes with a painted or watercolored look.

Naked Cakes

Naked cakes have been trending for weddings, bridal parties and truly any event.  They are understated, beautiful and give off a raw and authentic look.  The use of berries, different cake flavors or different frostings can allow a naked cake to be just as unique and beautiful as a traditional style cake.
