Wedding Trends: Vintage/Shabby Chic Cake Toppers

Posted by Jeffra on Jul 21, 2010

You can’t miss them, because they are definitely the ‘in’ thing right now. Yes, Vintage/Shabby Chic Cake Toppers. It’s not longer about the flowers or the monograms, but the little love birds, or words that are displayed on the top or around your wedding cake.  As I was playing around Etsy today I found a few to share.

What do you think of this new trend?  Are you doing using a topper on your cake or leaving it plain?

Cakes We Love {Part 2} -The Cupcake Trend

Posted by Jeffra on Mar 15, 2010

If you want to do something besides the traditional wedding cake, or even in addition to, cupcakes are definitely trending right now. We’re seeing cupcake stores pop up all over cities, and expanding at a rate close to the way organic food did! If there is a well known cupcake bakery in your area, another fun idea would be to get a really fun flavor individually wrapped and give them away as favors.

Let them eat cake…or just dessert!

Posted by MeganH on Apr 10, 2009

dessertbar

Dessert isn’t just about the wedding cake anymore. The newest trend in weddings is the Dessert Bar. Many brides are opting for dessert bars comprised of various mini-desserts for guests to choose from. Wedding cakes can be extremely expensive, and many people don’t even like the taste of wedding cake. Having a dessert bar with different choices, and individual sized deserts can be a more cost effective way to serve your guests.

When selecting items for your desert bar you can choose:
1. A theme that matches your wedding: Parisian theme – choose colorful macaroons, creme brulee, pastries and assorted cheeses.
2. Desserts with your wedding colors: chocolate cupcakes with pink icing, black and white iced cookies, strawberry cake pops, etc.
3. A variety of desserts to please everyone: something chocolate, something light like sorbet, cheesecakes, etc.

You can serve these desserts buffet style by having a table set up with all the desserts on them (as did Amy Atlas in the photo above), or serve them family style with a plate of various desserts delivered to each table. Be sure when ordering desserts to order enough. Remember that guests will have a tendency to choose more than one dessert to sample, and you don’t want to run out before everyone is fed.

But what about the cake cutting? If you still want the look of a traditional wedding cake, speak with your baker about creating a small top and a larger bottom tier of real wedding cake, and then decorating several faux layers to go under it. This will give the appearance of a real wedding cake, and allow you and your groom to “cut the cake”. If you still want to give your guests the option of having some wedding cake, have your baker bake a plain sheet cake, with no special detailing. This can be cut and plated by servers in the back and then brought out to your guests. No one will be the wiser!
