A sweet ending to any great soiree is surely on the minds of guests who have a sweet tooth. With all of the cupcake, candy, and other dessert trends out there, it is hard not to get a little overwhelmed with confection choices. However, nothing says “event excellence” better than a cake creation that can be a true visual centerpiece of your event. Here are some of the cake trends that you surely don’t want to miss.
Go Graphic with Sugar – Big sugar flowers are pretty, but if you want to step out of the traditional, try having your cake creator add more abstract sugar-made designs that seem to burst from the cake. Using such designs is a great way to personalize your cake and show off your personality. Think starbursts, ruffles, lace cutouts, or even paisley prints.
Taste the texture – Instead of butter cream swirls or smooth cake surfaces, texturize your treat with fabric-like elements. Fabric textures can be created with fondant that can be made to look like just about any fabric including crocheted lace or eyelet designs. Take this texture trend a step further and take inspiration from your dress and ask your cake creator to add accents that would match your dress.
Cake Buffets – If you have a sweet tooth that cannot be tamed, why stop at just one cake? A trio of coordinating cakes for your cake table is a great way to get a sweet twist on traditional. Take a design, motif or color combination that coordinates with your event and ask your cake creator to make each cake a little bit different.
