A trend to note is grey cakes. Often pale shades of grey teamed with silver, white or lemon detailing. We have noticed that the white sections to the cakes are textured, think ruffles, lace, ruching, pleating, gathering and beading. These cakes are proving to be quite popular on Wedding Cake blogs, and we've got to agree that they look really pretty.
We are loving the brush embroidery effects achieved in white on the grey background for a simple elegance. Please have a look at the brush embroidery video by Patchwork Cutters at the bottom of this page to see how really easy this is to do.
