Greetings to all the lovely couples out there planning their magical day! I'm your host from Party Central, and today I'm absolutely thrilled to share with you the crème de la crème of wedding cake trends that have graced 2022. Whether you're in the throes of arranging your wedding or just love keeping up with the latest in nuptial chic, this guide is the perfect companion to feed your curiosity and inspire your taste buds.

Artisanal Creations

This year, we've seen a splendid rise in handcrafted detailing. Think of it as edible art where the cake becomes a canvas for sugarcraft artisans. From intricate lace patterns to the flourish of hand-piped flowers, each creation is as unique as your love story.

Flavour Innovations

Gone are the days of mundane vanilla or chocolate. 2022 has been all about bold flavours that tantalise the palate. Imagine cutting into a cake and discovering a burst of salted caramel and apple compote, or a zesty lemon cake with a heart of elderflower mousse. It's not just a treat; it's an experience.

Colour Palettes

The spectrum of cake colours has been extraordinary, from dreamy pastels to vibrant hues that make a statement. Picture a tiered masterpiece blushing in soft rose pink, or a single-tier cake enrobed in a sapphire blue that echoes the depth of your commitment.

Structural Innovations

  • Deconstructed Cakes

    This year, the deconstructed cake has made a grand entrance. Rather than a single towering creation, imagine an array of smaller cakes, each a different flavour and design, offering a personalised experience for your guests.
  • Hanging Cakes

    Yes, you read that right—hanging cakes! This gravity-defying trend is for the bold at heart, presenting an aerial display of confectionery that doubles as a centrepiece.


In 2022, we're not just indulging our senses but also our conscience. Couples are increasingly opting for organic ingredients, locally sourced and crafted with love, not just for their guests but for the planet too.

Cake Alternatives

For those who dare to step outside the traditional cake box, the dessert table has been a revelation. An eclectic spread of mini-tarts, macarons, and cupcakes allows guests to dance through a variety of flavours and textures.


Every couple has a story, and this year, we've seen those stories come to life in sugar form. Custom toppers, monograms, and even miniature sugar figurines of pets have adorned cakes, making each one as individual as a fingerprint. At Party Central, we live for these trends because they speak to the heart of what we do—connecting you with the artisans who can turn your wedding cake dreams into a reality. As we whisk you away on this sweet journey, remember that your cake is more than just dessert; it's a symbol of your love and the life you're about to share. So, as you ponder over tiers and taste-test buttercreams, know that we're here to ensure your celebration is as delightful and memorable as the confections that grace your tables. Cheers to love, laughter, and a lifetime of delicious memories! Until next time, keep the party spirit alive, and don't hesitate to reach out to Party Central for all your event planning needs. We're just a click away, ready to sprinkle a dash of ease into your event planning adventures.
