Current Trends

Of course, the “customer gets what the customer wants”, but there are a few trends out there when it comes to wedding cakes.  One of the more common trends is personal cakes, where the couple has a tower of mini-cakes or cupcakes with the topper being a small cutting cake or the traditional saved first anniversary cake.  The are SUPER time-consuming for the cake decorator and therefore, typically much higher-priced than the traditional wedding cake, but they are highly dramatic and mighty impressive!  I have also seen this done with cookies, decorated with the bride and groom’s initials or monogram, or stacked to look like mini wedding cakes.

This trend is also popular for birthday, anniversary, retirement and graduation parties and wedding and baby showers too.  Frequently, this trend is used for a first birthday with the top cake being the smash cake for the child.
