12017 Pantone colour of the year ‘Greenery’
Much talked about and definitely going to feature strongly in 2017 in many elements of a couples special day is Pantone’s colour of the year ‘greenery’. Fresh zesty greens and lush foliage are coming through in mood boards, succulents and verdant foliage in wedding table flower schemes and in sugar craft florals and foliage in wedding cake designs. From Blossom Tree Cake Company examples include… their bohemian ‘Boho Chic’ wedding cake design with fresh green foliage and a touch of blush pink roses.
Bold metallic design elements in edible gold or silver leaf and edible lustre decoration continue to feature strongly in wedding cake designs for 2017. Create a really sophisticated contemporary look with flashes of broken edible gold, silver leaf or metallic lustre tiers. Combine with elegant and perfectly finished contemporary white tiers and striking sugar flower work for truly stunning centrepiece wedding cakes.
A feature in wedding cake design which emerged in 2016 and looks set to continue to be popular with brides and grooms through 2017 and 2018 is incorporating a marble icing tier into your wedding cake design. A wispy white and grey ‘Carrera’ marble look contrasting with
crisp white tiers creates a really stunning look and a beautifully elegant wedding cake!
