Our Favorite Wedding Cakes from 2016

Wedding cakes have come a long way in recent years — transitioning from the traditional white, tiered cakes, to artistic + creative confections. The naked cake trend + geode cakes were definitely a hit last year and have continued to be a favorite in 2016; however, we’re also seeing some new, more modern + sleek designs! From abstract + geometric elements, to marble fondant, and lots of woodland-inspired accents, there was definitely an abundance of delightful desserts.

Let’s take a look at the list — in no particular order — and dig into these gorgeous goodies!
