Move over bigger than big cakes. Sweet little treats are trendy at this year’s weddings. From cupcakes and cake pops to decorated pies, brides are looking for unique alternatives to three-tiered cakes. “Unique, sweet treats are trendy and they save money,” comments Keith Bansemer, Director of Internet Marketing at Shindigz.com.
Vanilla and chocolate wedding cakes are still in demand, but many couples opt for seasonal tastes such as hazelnut, cinnamon, lemon, cherry chip, or mint. Novelty cakes that highlight a couple’s hobbies or interests are also on the rise.
Changes can be seen with fondant, butter cream icing, and icing sprays, too. Cake decorators highlight wedding colors with unique designs and patterns. Beyond pastels, trendy colors include bright oranges, deep purples, and jet blacks.
Other new, dessert trends include decorated cookies or brownies paired with specialty ice creams. One look through the colorful photo boards on Pinterest shows that the most popular trends for wedding cakes aren’t necessarily big cakes.
