Nashville Bride Guide's Best Wedding Cakes of 2016

Let's keep it going with the best of Nashville weddings from this year! Yesterday we explored the floral realm, and today we'll tackle cakes! This year's wedding cakes ranged from classic white buttercream to eclectic shapes and colors. We surveyed each published wedding and styled shoot this year and here are our picks for the best of the best!

1) Courtney's simplistic, lush white buttercream cake

Classic white textured cakes with sprigs of greenery were (and still are!) a huge trend in 2016! Courtney's cake by The Rolling Pin sitting atop a hammered silver cake stand tied in with their whole theme!

2) Abigail Volkmann's jewel toned styled shoot cake

A funky black cake with gold flecks by Oh Crumbs Bakery! is so fun for fall! Adding some fun jewel toned florals and a canoe cake topper by Whiskey Teacup really set the fun styled shoot tone!

3) Trista's art deco wedding cake

We love a good Great Gatsby wedding and Trista took the theme and ran with it! She put her own spin on art deco in every detail of her wedding – even her geometric wedding cake by Nashville Sweets

4) Abby Leighanne's Traveller's Rest styled shoot cake

We're head over heels for this cake by Tis So Sweet with white anemones! The white to gold ombrè buttercream base captures most cake trends from 2016!

5) Paige Brown Designs' lakeside styled shoot cake

Each and every layer of this inspired styled cake makes a statement! From a printed floral pattern to the gold foil doilies, this cake by Devyne Delights is for the posh and glam bride!

6) Jennifer's white lace and floral wedding cake

A custom stamped initial “A” and vintage lace patterned layers made Jennifer's cake by Patty Cakes one of a kind. Add in some florals and you've got one beautiful cake (almost too beautiful to eat)!

I think this just put me in a sugar coma! I love seeing all of the fun and amazing talent the bakers here in Nashville have! Bravo!
