And satisfy your guests' tastebuds.

If you're not the three-tiered-classic-wedding-cake type, you're going to love this new wedding dessert trend: watercolor cake. The cake's look is inspired by watercolor paintings, and features beautifully painted designs within the frosting.
But before you start stocking up on food coloring and cake pans, it's worth noting that achieving that effortless-looking touch of color isn't as easy as it looks. For a more detailed design, cake designers may paint patterns by hand using colored sugar and thin paintbrushes. When going for an all-over watercolor look, the approach is a little different — designers often place the cake on a spinning cake turntable, cover the sides of the cake with blotches of colored frosting, and then hold a flat tool against the cake while slowly spinning it. This beautifully mixes the colors together and smoothes them out, creating a watercolor effect.

Just think of the possibilities that this new wedding cake trend introduces: delicious rainbow slices, ombre layers, floral patterns, or even stained-glass styles. Watercolor cake has been all over Instagram lately—unsurprisingly, the cakes are really photogenic.

Take a look at some deliciously dreamy takes on the cakes, below.



The look also works for less formal occasions, like a child's birthday party or a bachelorette bash.

And here are a few cakes that nail the awesome dripping look.
