Each year Jewish wedding cakes get more creative, crazy and beautiful! Cakes now rank right next to the wedding dress in order of importance to brides! Keeping up-to-date on the latest cake fashions is a must!
Top Five Jewish Wedding Cake Trends for 2012:
Goodbye Cupcake Trees. The classic cupcake gets the old heave-ho from a new up and comer this year, the cake pop. Designed much like a classic lolli-pop, the cake pop is smaller than it’s distant cousin the cupcake, and much cuter!
Wedding cake pops are the new cupcakes.
How tall can you go? Height isn’t just for giggles, it’s what is going to matter in 2012 as brides and groom stray from the traditional shorter, but wider cakes.
Fondant vs. Buttercream. We saw a major trend over the last couple years with couples choosing the elegant looking, but not as yummy, fondant icing. This year, the couples have spoken and they choose to bring back the ever-delicious buttercream frosting.
Fruity Goodness. Strawberries, blueberries and blackberries, oh my! Fruit is expected to make many appearances in weddings this year, especially when there is chocolate involved. (Editor’s note: Is there anything better than chocolate and strawberries?)
Elegance. Thanks to reality TV shows like Ace of Cakes and Cake Boss, we were introduced to the wackier and entertaining wedding cakes these last couple of years. Couples this year are tending to stick with the more traditional and elegant wedding cake. We’ll see a return to subtlety.
Just like wedding dresses and hairstyles, the style for wedding cakes change too! You may have your own Jewish wedding traditions and customs, but try and find a creative way to stay on top of the latest tasty trends! Your guests will be happy that you did!
