Welcome to our 2014 Year in Review & 2015 Wedding Cake Trend Predications!
In 2014 Wedding Cakes took a decidedly romantic and glamorous turn. We saw beautifully soft, muted colors, iridescent fondant, and hand crafted sugar flowers. There was a good measure of bling, both on the cakes, above, below, and around them.
The staging of the cake became just as important as the cake itself. A few couples stayed traditional, with simple cake tables wrapped in linens, and lit from above. But a daring few ventured out, hanging their cakes from Swarovski wrapped swings, and propping them up on glass petals with chandeliers swinging both above and below. In one of my favorite vignettes, we set a large, gilded mirror behind a simple, elegant cake, allowing us to shoot the couple's faces as they made their first slice and fed one another.
The experts predict that 2015 will see a rise in nontraditional cakes made from cookies and macaroons, with metallic accents, and mixed shaped. I've already seen a few requests for this, and feel that we will see some bold, artistic colors, a big push in creative displays, and that we will once again be treated to unique flavor combinations and a good amount of ruffle, bling, and iridescence.
But for now, let's look back at the sweet, sweet memories we made in 2014 and the cakes we cut along the way!
And as a bonus....I had to include this cake from a last minute wedding I planned last week!
