it’s all in the details: pretty chevron cakes {thursday trend}

Hello lovers!

A little Thursday cake-spiration for you all this afternoon in the style of some chevron-tastic creations!  Chevrons (zig-zag lines) are a trend that have been around a little while in bridal shoots and inspiration, but they haven’t quite burst onto the real wedding scene just yet.  Well ladies, I think that might just be about to change.  You see, there’s the classic modern chevron cake, like the one on the left below.  All clean lines and crisp graphics this is a cake for the über-trendy city bride.  But recently I’ve been spying a few more pretty options for a chevron cake that I wanted to share!

First up, on the right, is this watercolour inspired cake.  It’s still modern with the square tiers, but the blurred painted chevron lines create a softer look.

For the modern romantic bride a feminine palette of pastels and metallics, round tiers, and the most delicate florals create a super soft and pretty look.


After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
