I am currently planning my daughters wedding and of course cake is one of the big topics for conversation. There is so much to choose from. The trends are becoming much more creative with many new flavors, styles, and choices in wedding cakes. Here are some of the hottest trends in wedding cakes for the summer of 2010.
One new trend that is happening for wedding cakes is leaving the traditional cake altogether and choosing cupcakes instead. This allows you to have several different kinds of cake and frosting and it can also be less messy than cutting the traditional cake. Cupcake cakes are usually much more budget friendly compared to the traditional cake.
Summer Time Fruit
Take advantage of the season. Use fruit on the top of you cake or cupcakes instead of icing. A beach wedding may lead to a cake topped with tropical fruits, or a spring wedding may lend itself to a cake topped with luscious strawberries. Not only is fruit much healthier, but it is beautiful for decorating and great tasting!
Many couples will have monograms put on their cake that match those on their wedding invitations, napkins, and so forth. This highly sophisticated look can be accomplished with a monogram cake top or sculpted fondant.
Do your research and find out what will work for your wedding. The cake should be a fun part of the wedding ceremony and a great way to show off your personality.
