Foliage & Greenery Decorated Wedding Cakes: Wedding Cake Trend 2017

Wedding cake with greenery by DeVoli Cakes, gumpaste foliage by Petalsweet right

Officially named the color shade of 2017, greenery is set to come to the fore in wedding cake decorating this year. Building on the existing woodland and nature-inspired wedding cake trend, gumpaste foliage and greenery no longer have just a bit part in wedding cake decorating. Foliage takes on not just equal billing with sugar flowers this year, but works beautifully as a stand alone color choice on its own paired with simple whites.

DeVoli Cakes showcase just this with their elegant lace and roses wedding cake above paired with trailing greenery. On the right above, PetalSweet demonstrate just how close to nature gumpaste foliage can get with an amazing array of gumpaste greenery.
