Bling is in
By Janine Mitchell
It is so nice to see that modern times have given us the
acceptance to broaden our limitations of our own wedding cakes.
Gone are the days where we only had a few choices of
design. Wedding cakes were to be white, cake was to be fruit,
and your only decisions were which iced flower arrangement and how
many tiers your cake had to consist of. This is not a criticism of
wedding cakes gone by, but more an acknowledgement of the
transformation wedding cakes have undergone.
As with many trends surrounding weddings, we have reached a
stage where wedding cakes take special precedence after the
bride. These days we can have the cake incorporate the look
of the dress, the style of the couple, and even a miniature version
of the family dog … there seems to be no boundaries.
So what's hot? White is still in and will always be the
most popular choice. However, colours are now sharing centre stage
along with bling - yes, BLING is in!
Big satin bows with diamantes, beautiful ribbons, embossed
patterns piped onto the cake, monogrammed initials, fresh flowers
that accentuate a simple cake. By adding any of these extras, your
cake can morph into an elegant, sophisticated and very important
part of your wedding day, instead of just a piece of cake to end
your special day - did I mention the Bling?
Cupcake towers, with a small separate wedding cake for cutting,
are introducing themselves as an exciting upbeat trend … and
there's bling on them too! Each guest receiving their own edible
art will guarantee admiration, even from the harshest of
Trends do eventually go round in circles. Perhaps in time we
will come back to the white covered fruit cake lavishly covered in
iced flowers … with a bit of bling!
