Not Just Cake- New Trends in Wedding Desserts

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

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.

Explore your options with do-it-yourself, cake supplies for weddings and other events.  Making “life more fun” since 1926, customers shop Shindigz for over 34,000 party supplies, photo invitations, party favors, and party decorations to over 22 million events.

Royal Celebrations for Kate & Prince William

The wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton on April 29, 2011 at 11:00 AM (be sure to check local listings for television airing time) is anticipated to draw a gigantic global television and internet audience. Princess Diana’s wedding to Prince Charles drew about 750 million television viewers. With so many royalty enthusiasts, royal celebration parties will take place all over the world for friends and family to gather together and watch the couple join in holy matrimony. Get a jump start on your royal celebration!

Make your guest list and send out elegant, personalized white party scroll vertical invitations to watch the royal wedding.

Royal Party Decorations
Decorate the party space with wedding stacked mylar balloons. These balloon have the look of presents stacked upon each other in beautiful silver, purple and white. Add pearl white damask patterned latex balloons to make a royal balloon bouquet. Accent the party space with a few pink rose hanging topiary decorations. These topiaries feature luscious pink roses and includes pink ribbon for hanging. Another great decorating tip is to use gossamer streamers for decorating chairs, tables, tie fabulous bows, or create whimsical canopies. The possibilities are endless!

No royal celebration would be complete without hors d’oeuvres and cake. Serve your special party food on the something blue wedding kit-n-kaboodle to make your table decorating a breeze. The basic kit includes: dinner plates, luncheon napkins, cups, thank you notes, white plastic cutlery, pink pearl and green pearl balloons, a candy pink plastic table cover, and silver curling ribbon. For a matching touch of floral elegance, add a pink rose bouquet centerpiece to dress up your table(s). To commemorate the carriage that the couple is expected to ride in after the ceremony, bake a carriage cake using the princess carriage cake pan.

Royal Party Favors
Have a champagne toast for Prince William and Kate with the frosted tulip flute personalized glassware imprinted with the couple’s name and date of the wedding that your guests can take home with them to remember the occasion. A guaranteed crowd pleasing favor is one of the many wedding chocolate lollipops to choose from.
