If there’s something we love talking about almost as much as weddings, it’s dessert. With so many delicious flavours and eye-catching colours, it’s hard to say no to some sugary goodness.
Now it’s time to think outside of the round circle of your ordinary vanilla cake and jump on these tasty trends. We took a look at the fabulous Holy Suga and Dessert & Co, to see what’s going on in the brightly-coloured world of desserts and we’ve been left with some drool and serious sugar cravings.
You’ll find both Holy Suga and Dessert & Co at The Bridal Bazaar on the night of June 12 at Waterview in Bicentennial Park. If you’re a dessert maker and interested in showing at The Bridal Bazaar, follow the link to find out more.
Painted Buttercream Cakes
Perfect for a dreamy look, painted buttercream involves careful brushstrokes just like with an artwork. You may not be an artist, but Holy Suga and Dessert & Co can take care of the fine details for you. If you’re looking to learn, Queen of the Buttercream, Sweet Bloom Cakes, runs occasional masterclasses, so keep an eye out!
A little illusion can go a long way. Using perspex stands and runners gives the appearance of a floating cake and gives your cake a unique edge. After all, who wants to be boring?
Naked cakes aren’t going anywhere, so it’s time to jump on board. They’re also the perfect way to capture the season, whether it’s Autumn or Spring, as they make the perfect base for seasonal florals.
Speaking of florals, choosing bright and bold coloured flowers are the perfect way to make your cake the centrepiece of your event. Whether your cake has fresh flowers currently in season or if they’re made of sugar, it’s a winner either way.
Add a regal touch to your dessert table with some gold detailing – think leaves, prints, foils. However you decide to incorporate it, gold is the eye-catching way to get your guests drooling. Plus, it’s fun to eat gold.
If you’re sick of the regular round cakes you’ve been munching on, give square cakes a go. Depending on your theme, square cakes are a great shape for a minimalist look and their sleek look is perfect for a modern wedding.
Hear us out – have you ever said no to a doughnut? And not just your standard, run-of-the-mill doughnut; we’re talking next-level, frosted perfection. If you want to add some flair to your dessert table, you should definitely consider fancy doughnuts (but make sure to grab one for yourself as they’re sure to be snatched up).
