Floating cakes, suspended cakes, modern cake swings… whatever you choose to call this amazing wedding trend, I think we can all agree it makes quite the statement. And it’s a surefire way to surprise your guests! We love the way they defy gravity and point all eyes towards the grand finale, which just so happens to be one of our favorite parts of a wedding because sweets, duh! So move over photo backdrops, because these whimsical cake swing displays are coming at us full speed ahead!
It only took one image for us to wholeheartedly ascribe to this modern wedding trend.
Your tastebuds would take flight *literally* with this Portuguese tile inspired cake and its romantic cake swing. Such a simple way to create a focal point!
We like to think of this one as an edible pearl from Heaven, with abstract prints, crystallized rocks and the prettiest macrame suspension system we ever did see.
And how bout this one incorporating some soft silk ribbons in a beautiful dusty rose hue?
And look at the way this couple fashioned a birchwood haven for their three-tiered confection with succulents and beach grass.
We’re quite certain this gourmet treasure is a boho bride’s dream come true! The macrame frosting, the rope tassels, the square multi-level tiers…. we die!
So kiss the boring goodbye! Like a moth to a flame, we’re on the hunt for more sweetness like these (pun intended) ;) You can bet we’ll be applauding more wedding cake swings for years to come, and if you’re looking for more inspiration on trends in the wedding world, check out our latest posts on tassels and floral hoops here!
