Cake Decorating Trends 2019

 

Colour trends

Before we can look at specific decorating trends, it's important to see how colours are going to impact trends this year, Indeed, our editor Leeanne says that this year's "delicious hot pinks and natural moss greens lend themselves perfectly to cake designs with statement florals and foliage and we can’t wait to create nautical summer designs with the coral and blue!”
