Are ruffled cakes still going to be 'in'?
Any new design techniques?
i don't know
but i just saw a wedding dresss trend thing on today show on tv
and cake designs often mimic dresses
tons of ruffles and white bouquets for brides to carry and peplums
also corset style
so i think a really eye catching fresh looking wedding cake for a display or a sketch would be a three or five tier cake
with the middle tier sculpted in--in the style of a corset
although i would be the least trendy person in the world i still think that might be a cool idea--maybe kinda close to the 2013 trends
maybe it should be a four tier with the middle two tiers stacked and sculpted
They say mint is the new "in" color. Haven't seen it here yet.
Hollywood glam, succulents, natural looks are all requests so far.
I'm still seeing shabby/vintage chic really in and the whole love bird thing.
I've heard that quite a few brides around here are doing charcoal, ivory and blush pink with a "Victorian" theme. But I haven't had a bride request it from me yet.
Actually, I've been encountering quite a few requests for bold patterns (chevrons etc) with a clean, modern look with a bright splash of color- like orange, purple, teal or green. Not a huge chevron fan, but I do like the bold clean and modern thing!!!
I have had NO requests for dots and ribbon!! Yay me! Could be because I set a $400 minimum :)
I did I blog post about this: http://sugaredsaffron.co.uk/top-10-wedding-cake-trends-for-2013/
I think naked cakes, ruffles and single tiered combos are going to be in as people are going for the trendy, relaxed look.
And THAT is what really matters. I haven't been asked for that in a long time thankfully. I pretty much come right out and say I won't do them though.
but I've already said too much
love your article!
K8 likes me, I think I've finally made it
Ruffles, lace, jewels and loose flowers like cabbage roses etc.
