Wedding Cake Trends and Alternatives

Culinary Cakes designer Eve Lacabanne is busy working away on her celebration cakes.   Her cake artistry was featured in the current issue of Real Weddings Magazine (along with table decor and floral by Party Art Design).

Eve has turned her theatrical eye as a former dancer to the artistry of cake design.  Her passion for pastry is evident in all her customed-designed and handcrafted cakes shown below. Weddings are all about personalizing the details – and that goes for the wedding cake.   The season, venue, floral, stationery and even the bride’s dress are all inspiration for a special cake.

Here are some trends Eve is seeing this season for the wedding cakes she is creating with her clients.

Mix and Match Tiering
Playing with the different sizing of tiers – such as making one tier extra tall – gave this cake (right) a classic yet modern visual.    Also mixing shapes with square and round cakes (left).


Simple With a Touch of Glamour
Adding a piece of jewelery, in this case faux diamond strands with clusters of handmade sugar floral (left) and glittery luster-dusted finishes (right)  gives a cake a tasteful touch of sparkle and bling.

Textures and Patterns
To give texture to a monochromatic cake pantone,  Eve hand-piped a classic brush embroidery motif on the fondant (right).   Designs from wedding stationery or fabrics can be transferred onto hand-sculpted floral or a fondant cake finish (left).

Personalized Miniature Cakes
Yes, it can be considered a splurge for some but  instead of one cake why not create petite wedding cakes for every one of your special guests to enjoy or take home as a gift.

Wedding Cake Alternatives
For those couples who are foregoing the traditional wedding cake here’s a blog entry on Wedding Cake Alternatives from JPC Event Group that included a fabulous dessert from Culinary Capers.    Our  Study in Chocolate is a delectable quartet consisting of a creamy chocolate crème brûlée, a miniature chocolate cheesecake, rich chocolate pâté and white chocolate truffles.
