Savvy Sweet Beginnings!

Posted by twilson on Feb 24, 2010


Move over plain, traditional wedding cake! With a sumptuous array of edible delights, there isn’t any need to bore your guest’s palette with something expected. We love the new sweets trend that is revolutionizing receptions from California to New York! Here are a few things to note when sampling treats for your big day:

Don’t judge a book by its cover: It’s a new day and a new dawn…what tastes better really is better! Skip the sugary mold of fondant and let the true butter cream colors shine through. Try something bold and flavorful, like mango cake with coconut icing or espresso cake with mocha icing.

All eyes on the groom: Let him have his moment to shine with an out-of-this world grooms cake. Full stadium seating, fiery guitars, or replica’s of his favorite place to eat are a good place to start. Highlight your cake tables with lighting and draping to make for a dramatic display of art.

Micro-magnificent: Continue forward with the favored micro-dessert stations. We see 2010 infusing life in these tables with gelato, homespun desserts, and even cinnamon rolls.  Don’t be afraid to top everything off with grandmother’s vintage cake topper and keep the traditions alive—whether there be cake or not.
