Wedding Cake Trends

'Tis the season for wedding planning! 

We recently did a feature on wedding cake trends on Here are the highlights and some of our favorite tips:
  • It’s important to plan ahead with ordering your wedding cake. Making an appointment quickly is key to do months in advance. It's never too early! 
  • A very popular design is having piping that matches the embroidery or lace on your gown. Dividing up the layers with different designs and a colored ribbon is also a unique twist of tradition.
  • Don't be afraid of fondant! It helps create a clean finish for looks like chevron and ruffles. However, with the right amount of skill, a ruffle cake can be created using buttercream. 
Happy planning! xo

If the gender is unknown, a safari theme is great. We threw a baby shower for our friend's first baby boy, and had a monkey cakeBut ultimately, it all depends on the mom-to-be. Plan a party around her personal style and you will surely have a blast!
