yes for example--being able  to pipe and apply lace points--check the "e" column on earlene's chart--surely the most overlooked column in the chart ;)

Brought this topic back up, because I have received two food service magazines in the past two weeks that have crowned eclairs as the next big food trend.  They were talking about how the cronut became so hot, and how many french pastries are experiencing a resurgence with modern twists.  So that is the opinion of a few food writers in the restaurant industry!

Oh good, cuz I rock at eclairs, and suck at Petite fors, and outside of major cities in Texas, nobody even knows what a macaron is. I agree about the piping becoming a lost art, I am self taught and I try to spend extra time practicing piping borders and lacework. I see it starting to become more popular than fondant where I am when it comes to wedding cakes. Brides are trying to cut corners left and right to have their "Pinterest" wedding. I was actually asked to make an entire dummy wedding cake, and they would buy the cake for the wedding at Costco! My answer was..."ummmm, NO!"

It's amazing how brides get creative trying to save money.  My sister & brother-in-law own a country club.  They have had brides to bring in crates full of empty Dom-Perignon bottles and specify that the cheap champagne they ordered be served from the Dom bottles.

You should tell them to advise their brides that doing that is against the law and not worth losing their liquor license over.

I think buttercream and fondant are both art mediums that can be both equally as intricate. I don't think it is fair to say one is easier then the other as it all depends on the artists work. Buttercream is still widely popular. However fondant has been trending like crazy for a long time now. I think that buttercream just hasn't been out there as much media wise in the past few years but I'm seeing it more and more now. Its been a lot of fondant and I feel as though people are looking for that look of buttercream again. I love the look of both, but to each their own.  I hope the Petit Four is the new hot thing because I have a sweet spot for them, yum yum :)

At last weeks show, one groom asked if I did anything but cakes and I asked what he meant and he said "Like Pies".  Then I got two requests to do a nightmare before Christmas cakes and three people asked if I did Gluten Free cakes.  But no one asked about cookies.  In the Fall candied apples are a little popular up here in New England as the guests take home item.  Candy buffets are going away too and Grooms cakes are very scarce (still).  People are trying to stretch their wedding budget to the max.

I lol and snorted! I hate teenagers touching my food. I bought a cone at McD's a few months ago and the slimeball at the pick up window had his greasy bare hands off the little paper and on the cone part, and was smirking at me, so I got it and thanked him and pulled forward and chucked it in the bushes. NO FREAKING WAY am I eating something a dirty boy teenager with that look on his face touched. YUCK!

 

Macarons haven't even made it to NKY yet. We have a TON of cupcake shops and they all suck. There was one that had good cupcakes but she was selling them for less than $2 and was working another job to pay the bills, even though she was always busy. Rumor has it she had a heart attack, and she is in her early 40's. Someone bought the place, and kept the name, but her cupcakes suck.

I am all set for a cookie trend.  I love decorating cookies.  It's just about right for my attention span.

AI've stopped doing cookies because the trend where I live is for people, who apparently just like making cookies, to make them for about a third of what I would have to charge to make a profit. And these are perfectly lovely cookies.

Another trend, if you can call it that, is for a quick marriage then going all out the following year on a big reception.  I have three for next year like that so far............ and it's been almost unheard of in the past.  One is "military" but the other two just decided to have the big party a year later............. - oh, after having a baby.  Yes another trend is to have the baby of their dreams first THEN the reception of their dreams.  But either way the bride really misses her day in the spotlight - which is good for us, when you think of it.
