Pastels have been a popular choice for many things and it’s become a go-to colour theme for cakes. These light-hued cakes from Spatula’s Cakes & Desserts are super IG-worthy and are perfect if you don’t want cakes that are too loud as it follows a subtler colour palette.

Take a look at their IG feed and you’ll notice that they seem to have an affinity for pastel pink designs. For some variety, they play around with different textures like layered icing, gradient hues and fondant flowers and decor.

We usually think of parties as being vibrant and colourful, but monochrome colours like black and grey can also make a bold statement. Though an all-black cake might be unconventional, the ones from Brown & Sugar look uber luxurious and could very well pass off as modern art sculptures in a gallery.

The bakers of this store use different textures like intricate fondant swirls and indents with edible metallic paint for their monochrome cakes to stand out. Though they use colours that are thought to be dull, the end result is anything but boring.

It could be the careful placement of each topping that makes it seem almost like a Christmas wreath, and it gives off major winter vibes when it’s paired with white frosting as it looks like a blanket of snow. Whatever the case, the cakes have a timeless design that focuses on simplicity.
