I'm making a concerted effort this fall/winter to practice techniques and prepare dummy cakes for my portfolio in order to build up my wedding cake business for next summer.
I'm curious where other cake designers find what's trending for 2014 weddings. I'm thinking bridal magazines, websites, pintrest, fashion magazines. Any other ideas? Any sources you like better than others?
I guess a related question would be how much do you find your customers follow trends or are you doing similar designs that you did 5 years ago?
