Hot Wedding Cake Trend: Copper

Every year there seem to be new trending metallic color palettes for wedding cakes, last year it was all about Rose Gold- and who can forget that!! So step aside, Gold and Silver because this year, it’s all about COPPER!!

Copper details are popping up in so many cakes and in so many creative ways, This rich-toned metal goes with any wedding style and is particularly beautiful as an accent on fall wedding cakes. A bright polished copper can look glamorous and elegant and an aged copper can lend a rustic feel. Here are 10 of our favorite copper-toned cakes!

This stunning creation by The Pastry Studio features bas-relief floral details, all highlighted with a gorgeous copper finish.

Shannon Bond Cake Design showcases a stunningly tall creation, with fabric ruffles, hanging beads and, of course, a splash of that gorgeous copper.

Jessica Harris goes for a very modern, clean design with this hammered copper effect cake. The copper is a gorgeous visual counterpoint to her black wood effect tier and those gorgeous white ruffles.

Copper takes on a decidedly different tone when paired with this dazzling azure blue. We love the cascading sequins and textured, fabric-effect fondant.
