I'm loving all of Marthas wedding cakes in her magazine. They are from many different periods in time.
I wonder if there are brides out there requesting these?
Here is a link to some thumbnails. The magazine did much more justice than the web link, but here they are.
It's been popular for a few years I think. Maybe not flooding the market popular but I've been seeing 'em for a while.
The people who sell mold making stuff will be very happy if it catches on big huh. And Martha could be the tipping point.
I think it's like any other cake design article, it might spur some interest, but they'll still be sticking to the swiss dots and piped swirls for the most part I get a lot of brides who look at pictures like that, say how much they love the design, then order the swiss dots.
Especially when they find out the prices of the fancier cakes!
The cakes are very pretty but that style does nothing for me personally. The CakeGirls seem to think the retro stuff is big but I'm not convinced just yet.
The sticker shock on these style cakes generally keeps them from becoming a major trend.
I think places like our beloved & admired CakeGirls can start their own trends in their areas huh. Across Chicagoland? Oh yeah! Betcha they get the orders for the retro looks & cool jewels they create
I really liked the white cake with the piped pearl swags with the diamond on top. It was very cute.
