Love it, or hate it , current wedding. Cake trends!

post #1 of 127
Thread Starter 
I thought I would check with my fellow bakers to see what trends going on right now with wedding cakes, make you giddy with delight, or cringe, when brides come to you with their designs... I'll start...
If I have to make one more burlap wedding cake I am :cry:going to scream!!!icon_sad.gif

I am personally sick of Swiss dots.  I try to talk my brides into being creative.  But all I get is, I just like the simple look.  Yes, easy on my time and effort but not challenging to my creative side.  Three cakes in the next month.  Swiss.dots.  

There are times when I think I can help. Other times I think, given an already shallow gene pool, I am doing more for humanity by just letting go...

I avoid the trends by custom designing for the most part, so I can say that swiss dots and burlap wouldn't ever be anything I'd have to work with, thank gorsh! icon_biggrin.gif

I'll also admit that faced with the prospect of making swiss dots and earning a paycheck, or not making swiss dots and not earning a paycheck will change my tune real quick...lol. But I can't say I've ever had to do it...yet. icon_biggrin.gif

I understand the scream thing.  The only option is option "B", and that is to move out of state. The entire locality does not change that much.

 

With this new-fangled lightening speed internet stuff, it seems that the fads change big, hard, and fast and become on-demand by so many at once.

I personally do not understand how burlap started. Who thought wrapping that stinky ugly fabric around a cake was a good idea? Yes I know there are "cleaner" less messy versions in the fabric department, but I see a LOT of regular ole hairy gross burlap on cakes, when doing a Google search. Gives me the heebie jeebies.

Or raffia. I guess it could double as floss. But I hate feathers too, really, anything that could shed.

this really turns my brain inside out, I got a 10 day suspension for saying burlap sucks.

Maybe it was your choice of words and not the sentiment. But now that you said it again, double jeopardy applies, right? (Unless the mod is cranky.)

Kudos to Kisamarie for saying it in an acceptable, unflagable way,

(The 'cloud of courtesy' is not always with me.)

Shoot, didn't mention what I did like....so maybe I have personal trends, I dunno.

 

I did this a couple of months ago and get lots of requests for similar looks, and since it's an original design, well I'm all for making it whenever I'm asked. :D :D

 

My yearly contribution to the local art center fundraising gala. All SMBC, with wafer paper details.

 

 

Let's see...I think the other one is a single accent flower on an otherwise subdued cake design. I like that, I spose that's kinda of trendy. Whether it's a wafer paper bloom, or a giant rose.
