Ding dong, ding dong… Wedding bells are in the air almost constantly for cakemakers, chiming in time with that delightful jingle of the shop bell. For many customers, a wedding cake is the most important cake they will ever order, and as cake-makers, it is our job to understand the trends and looks that inspire brides. This year, the keyword is “classic.” Time-honored looks are important this year, and it’s equally important to put a personal twist on them. Classic styles offer the perfect stage for creativity. Try starting with soft colors, including whites, creams, pale yellows and pinks. Look to traditional techniques to bring unrivaled elegance and beauty to your cake. Lastly, think classic in your decoration: lace, flowers, vintage jewelry.
