Ombre Wedding Cakes

I’m not one for trends, but ever now and then something really catches my eye. I really, really love ombre and the beauty it can bring to a colour palette- instead of bright red and it’s bold contrast against white, the graduated shades can lend themselves to a softer ‘melted together’ look which completely changes how colours work together.

With ombre comes all kinds of beautiful ombre details – including stunning ombre cakes.

    These cakes are really pretty especially the orange seashell ombre cake. It would be really good fun to have a cake in theme with the bridesmaids’ dresses such as the pink ruffle cake.
