A fast growing trend in the wedding industry is supplying your guests with distinctive desserts and wedding cakes. Great news for those sweet tooths out there. Here are the top 5 sweet styles brides are booking these days.
There is a new trend coming from A list celebrities in LA – matching your desserts to your colour scheme. Search the internet for a ‘insert colour here’ dessert and prepare to be amazed. White ideas: meringues, cupcakes with vanilla bean frosting, white chocolate brownies. Blue ideas: mini blueberry cheesecakes, blue macaroons, blue berry jelly. Talk to your caterer armed with your ideas and challenge their creativity.
A concept that is still quite fresh is providing a sweets bar for your guests in lieu of wedding favours. Set your sweets bar up with personalised bags that say ‘Mr and Mrs Newlyweds’. There will be a large array of lollies in a buffet setting and your guests will be able to pack their preferred candy into cute little bags. Most adults haven’t purchased singular lollies in years and seeing all their favourite sweets out on display will inject a sense of childhood wonder and frivolity into your event.
A popular idea many brides have favoured is having a cupcake tower instead of a wedding cake. There are many reasons wedding cake specialists are getting a growing amount of requests for this clever idea. Cutting a cake and handing it out to guests can be difficult in some reception settings. Whereas having a cupcake tower where everyone can help themselves to one, or many, perfectly proportioned little cakes is a clever dessert concept.
If you are having a more relaxed affair, a pie bar is a unique dessert theme growing in America. Envision a table layered with all sorts of pies with little toothpick notes popping out explaining what type of pie it is. There are so many options including: apple, pecan, banana and caramel, chocolate cream. The mouth waters just imagining it! You can either organise homemade or head to your local cake shop and find out the different pies available.
Macaroons are incredibly trendy and versatile when it comes to being part in your special day. They look great in a little transparent box as wedding favours for your guests. Macaroons also look very attractive when plated beside each other, organised in their various colours. You can have countless flavours and they will add a beautiful pop of colour to your special day.
If the new dessert trend is something your sweet tooth wants to be a part of, find someone who makes great sweets. Discuss your wants and dreams and make sure they are on board. Having something unique will give your guests something great to talk about…after they’ve swallowed their mouthful.
