5 Cake Trends That Will Carry Into 2012

planning » planning » Wedding Cakes

For those of you in brainstorming mode for your 2012 celebration, here’s one more thing to add to that list of yours: the wedding cake. While it may not be your top priority, we know somewhere down the line you’ll have to make a decision about it. Here are 5 cake trends we foresee making the cut in 2012!

For our 2012 wedding dress predictions read Getting Married in 2012? 7 Hot Trends You May Be Wearing.

Over the summer we saw a rise in these romantic frills. Perhaps it’s the dreamy texture or just something different, but we predict more and more ruffled cakes for 2012.

2011 was the year for “rustic elegance” and “DIY”. By next summer, we’ll see a drop in rustic, but firmly believe elegance will remain. Expect lots of luxurious, extravagant and over-the-top creations!

Every year we see our fair share of white wedding cakes (be it modern or vintage). And, why not? They’re such timeless confections that, even 50 years from now, will never be out of style.

Buttercream and Royal Icing Cakes
Move over fondant–these creamy wedding cakes are garnering much attention. Maybe it’s that “just whipped” look, but there’s something about these heavenly items that makes you want to sneak a quick lick (hello 10-year-old-self) when no one is looking.

Multiples of Single-Tiered Cakes
The cake stand industry must be rejoicing as more and more real couples are opting for single-tiered wedding cakes (you get more flavours and creates a more filling dessert table)–a trendy idea we foresee for 2012 weddings.
