In today’s weddings, a cake is more than an opportunity to smash something into the face of your new husband or wife; it is a focus point, a piece of art that people eagerly look forward to seeing. With the role of the cake going from a practical to a more artistic element of a wedding, brides and grooms are looking to magazines such as Special Events and websites like theknot.com to find inspiration for their big day.
The trends for wedding cakes this year are more unique than ever incorporating not just metallic colors, lace, geometric shapes and rosettes into a cake; but also combining unique flavors. Guests can be treated with a slice of the traditional vanilla bean cake with lemon curd and raspberry mascarpone whipped cream or have something a little more unique like a pistachio cake filled with white chocolate cream cheese and whipped bittersweet chocolate ganache. Be on the lookout at weddings this summer and see if you can spot any of these trends.
