It's perfect for a winter wedding

The cable knit wedding cake trend is taking over our Pinterest feeds

Planning a winter wedding has many advantages, and it's not hard to see why so many brides save their date for the colder months.

From gorgeous wedding décor ideas including fairy lights, candle light, open fires and sheepskin rugs, to pretty faux fur wraps for the bride and bridesmaids, warming drinks like mulled wine or mulled cider to welcome guests in from the cold, and a guaranteed cosy atmosphere, to countless ways to save on a budget including more affordable venue hire and honeymoons, and finally – an excuse to try out the beautiful cable knit wedding cake trend!

Although there have been some truly mesmerising wedding cake trends to inspire 2016 weddings, from summery naked cakes to frilly ruffled cakes, geometric patterned cakes and dripping cakes, shimmery metallic cakes to artistic and dream-like watercolour cakes, even magic cakes and non-cake cakes (think macaron towers or wheels of cheese), the 'cable knit' cake trend is the perfect style for a 2017 winter wedding.

These fabric-inspired wedding cakes are slowly taking over our Pinterest feeds as the loveliest cake trend this winter, as they are both chic, elegant, simple and understated as well as cosy looking at the same time.

Made with fondant icing, these cable-knit details are a cosy (and edible) way to add a seasonal touch to your winter nuptials.

Could these creations inspire your wedding cake?

Feeling inspired? Give this celebration cake a go yourself with our three-tiered occasion fruit cake, then mould some plaits out of fondant icing to decorate it with, and use a fork or toothpick to create patterns in the icing.
