Being in the wedding industry for nearly 8 years now, I have watched trends come and trends go. I am now starting to see trends that were once popular and die down become popular again. Honestly, I love watching them. I love to see what styles and ideas brides love. Some trends I'm sad to see go and others not so much.
Over the past few months I have noticed one particular trend that I haven't seen before. This isn't so much a design trend though. Brides today are smart and while they aren't pinching pennies most do work on a realistic wedding budget. However, what is changing is how they are spending those wedding cake dollars.
Brides today are less focused on the wow factor cake design, but on the wow factor flavor! I am hearing more brides say they want a simple buttercream design with no fondant. They want it beautiful and elegant with a floral or other simple adornments. They are no longer seeking all the bells and whistles and *cough cough* expensive add-ons. Instead, they are opting to spend their money on the flavor of the cake!
More brides are choosing a wow factor flavor rather than a wow factor look! They are realizing they can still have a gorgeous cake without sacrificing the taste. After all, why spend money on knock your socks off cake if it's dry and ends up in the trash. Lately, brides are raving about our newest flavor the Rosewater cake. Rosewater requests have skyrocketed, as has Pink Champagne, Banana Foster, and Peach Chiffon! Brides are wanting their guests to be impressed with the melt in your mouth flavor and are willing to pay a little more for a cake that tastes above and beyond ordinary!
