Weddings of today are based on extremely sweet colors that look almost edible! The juicy pastels are the trendiest when it comes to delicate brides and classy-vintage weddings. But even those who are planning a modern wedding are seen wearing blushes and ivories on their big day! The trend with pastel nuances managed to cover many fields of a wedding. It started as an innocent tendency for flower arrangements and bridal bouquets and continued with wedding dresses, decorations, fabrics and cakes.
This is why 2012 weddings look so romantic and fashionable. They are entirely built around soft and refined colors. Let’s talk about wedding cakes! This is one of our favorite subjects when it comes to planning a wedding and its most important centerpieces. The wedding cake is nowadays regarded as a masterpiece of the wedding. It is the edible expression of the couple’s personality and their wedding’s style. This is why our designers say that modern weddings are nothing but the extensions of the bride and the groom’s interests and hobbies.
It’s very good to focus on the things you like and try to incorporate as many as possible in your wedding. This will ensure your satisfaction and the originality of your wedding. Pastel color wedding cakes are a real treat for the guests. They look superb and extremely delicious. The softer the shades are the tastier the layers will look like! We are number-one fans of soft colored cakes. We think they are among the most beautiful confections made during the last few centuries!
The white cake is a classic beauty no doubt about it, but off white shades can add even more uniqueness to a cake. But what the most popular pastel shades are? If you’re interested in something close to white, we recommend you the ecru, the ivory and the sand hues. These shades are ideal for elegant formal and casual wedding parties. If you care for something more deliciously looking, we suggest you consider blush and coral. These are the hottest trends in wedding cakes for this year’s wedding.
From the same category you can select buttery yellow, lavender or lilac, teal, turquoise, lime green, salmon pink, rose and antique pink. You can also consider cream, champagne, beige, nude or gold for a more gallant and stylish confection. Try a gray shade if you prefer a more whimsical and modern cake. Metallic hues are also in, and we think they can make fabulous accents to pastel colored tiers. Use bronze, silver, copper, pewter or taupe for a blush cake’s details and obtain magical results. We like the way individual and miniature cakes look like when made in soft pinkish shades and other derived nuances.
Wedding trends are constantly evolving and this is how new styles emerge in different fields: wedding dresses, cakes, floral arrangements, etc. Modern weddings are largely based on unique themes and personal accents. However, overall, they’re fashionable events of a high significance to the bride and groom. One of the most important items of a wedding is the cake. This confection is nowadays interpreted in a whole new light. We can’t talk about the wedding cake in terms of a sweet dessert meant to satisfy a tradition or a ceremony ritual. The contrary, the modern cake is viewed as a real expression of the couple’s personality and preferences.
If you want your guests to taste a little bit of you and your individual style, create a cake that mirrors your taste. The amazing styles promoted nowadays are too beautiful to think they’re even real. Our designers can make you a cake out of nothing and transform in a fabulous confection an impossible dream! This is who far the techniques of working with the flavors, favors and ingredients have gone! Our cake makers are very excited about the fact that they have total freedom to create whatever design they dream up. The current trends in wedding cakes show us that it’s important to opt for an aesthetical cake that also tastes fabulous! It’s not enough to choose an attractive design and impress your guests.
Caring for the taste of the cake is perhaps even more important in the end. Your guests will always remember an outstanding cake but they will also analyze its taste and give their verdict. If your cake is both tasty and impressive, your invitees will classify your wedding as a successful one! But what cake trends are there to be taken into consideration by a modern couple? Let’s take for instance the clean & classic style. Elaborated confections with intricate patterns are a thing of the past, no doubt about it. Even the traditional couples of today are choosing a simpler classic design for their reception.
There are many unique styles to follow in this sense. The fashion-inspired designs that mimic the bride’s gown fabric are among the hottest. Dashingly whimsical and feminine, these cakes are ideal for all budgets and wedding formalities. The mixed-shapes styles are also trendy. Round tiered cakes are still the favorites, but other bold shapes, like hexagons or octagons are also gaining popularity. Anything asymmetrical or atypical can suit. You should also know that tall column tiered cakes are out of fashion. They have been replaced by the stacked tiered designs. As for the color, anything unconventional can suit: lavender, rum pink, ice blue, sandy and nude subdued hues. Sugarpaste flowers are replacing the fresh blooms.
