Wedding cake trends for 2013

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
What are the predictions on wedding cake trends for 2013?

Are ruffled cakes still going to be 'in'?

Colors trends?

Any new design techniques?
post #2 of 40

i don't know

 

but i just saw a wedding dresss trend thing on today show on tv

 

and cake designs often mimic dresses

 

so

 

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

I love when the bottom tier is ruffled, and the middle tier is a double tier, and the top is a little 4".


And I love the corset tiers, but ruffles and corsets together are to human looking, Haha.

I've done a few like that. Love double barrel tiers.

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. tapedshut.gif

I read somewhere about Mint being the flavor for 2013. I am a hobby baker and use mint whenever I can. I am finally "in style"!!! LOL

Wow,...thank you for the responses! Sugaredsaffron, I LOVE your blog post!

Any pictures for the double barrel with ruffles on the bottom, tried searching but didn't get much, also how do single tiered combos look?

This is kinda what I meant by single tiers, lots of different single cakes instead of a tiered one.
