As the cake industry evolves and cake decorators and artists alike exhaust traditional techniques, we are forced to come up with new and exciting designs that will suit the modern client. While tradition will never die and I believe that classic beauty cannot be replaced, there is certainly a place for new fun & funky design techniques!
I am presently in love with urban, edgy and what I call 'chic' cake designs. There is an endless supply of inspiration from modern art, furniture and landscape design. It is exciting to translate such elements into a cake, for me it's like a blank art canvas that I can create my own modern art on!
With regards to wedding cakes I think they fit in well with the more trendy couples who like cutting edge design but also want something beautiful as their centrepiece. The design co-ordinations are endless and can be so easily tailored to encompass the colour scheme and textures that a couple most favour.
This week I created a 4 tier wedding cake which I absolutely loved! It featured lightly textured stone tiers with bold geometric patterning using edible gold for a more luxe appearance, as well as pale pink marbling. The colours easily combined the elements of the wedding and certainly made a commanding statement.
You will definitely see a few more of these from me as I can't wait to try out a few more variations! It may even become a feature in my range!
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend, thanks for stopping by!
