We’ve seen marble on the catwalk, interior design, homeware and jewellery, and now marble wedding cakes are taking the world by storm. In contrast to the more rustic naked cakes, this trend is luxury and glamour at its best, and we just can’t get enough.
We're not talking about marbled cake sponge (although there's nothing stopping you from marbling your cake inside AND out!), but instead incredible icing work that makes your wedding cake look like it is crafted from beautiful marble. It's a great trend to tap into, particularly if you already love the look of marble wedding invitations.
You might hesitate to cut into such a beautiful wedding cake, but we can guarantee it'll taste as good as it looks so go on and cut your wedding cake and enjoy every mouthful. Just make sure you get some photos of it in all its marbled glory first. Want to find the perfect wedding cake? Make sure you browse our directory of wedding cake suppliers near you!
