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. [pic]
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.
