It has been quite a while since my last blog entry. The bakery has been keeping me quite busy! I did want to take the time to talk about the 2014 wedding cake trends because cakes this year are just gorgeous!
Here is the sweet scoop on this year's hottest wedding cakes:
1. Color: Ombré is everywhere! It was only a matter of time until this look made its way to the cake design world. Not only are they ombré on the inside, but they also ombré on the outside! Add a beautiful colorful gumpaste flower and voila!
2. Metallics: In 2014, make your wedding cake shine! Why not make it stand out by adding one metallic tier or even making the entire cake metallic!
3. Texture : In 2014 it's all about texture. Move over smooth cakes, the ruffle has taken over! Add some sass and style to your cake by incorporating a tier of beautiful ruffles.
5. It's all about seasonal flavors : For a summer wedding, choose a lemon cake with blackberry or wild blueberry buttercream. For a fall wedding, choose a maple brown sugar cake with dulce de leche buttercream or a delicious carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. For a winter wedding, choose something decadent such as praline, or mocha.
