    Ombre Wedding Cakes

    In years past you would never have seen a wedding cake with color other than the flowers, accents or possibly a little bit of color detail on the cake tiers for those that live fast and wild!  Forward 20 years to present, there is color on cakes in all types of design:  scrolling, fondant draping, single tiers of cake or in this picture a full hombre of color.  When thinking about doing this style of cake here are a couple of things to consider.  First, the  darker the color of buttercream the better the pictures for the photo booth!  You can have fabulous “smurf” mouth in blue or go for “Shrek” in the colors of green! Going for the lighter colors is romantic and elegant and even if you want more dramatic, consider that layer being a fake layer with the servings you need in the kitchen.  We find most adults at events will not eat the dark color buttercream for fear of having teeth and lips that look like Barnie the Purple Dinasore!

    Don’t get me wrong, using color can be fabulous! …but it needs to be purposed the right way, bringing elegance to the event and not steering more to a birthday day party type of idea.  Popular colors that are gorgeous in hombres are white to a light khaki or tan, off-white to blush, pale yellow to a darker yellow, ivory to pale peach and even tan to a light green is really stunning for weddings that are natural and full of greenery.  Keeping the lighter color on top and the darker color on the bottom will also create a vision on balance and proportion keeping the darker colors grounding the lighter colors.  Depending on the texture, consider tying it together with a bouquet of assorted fresh flowers to match the wedding bouquet or centerpieces.  Just keep in mind the colors and your wedding cake will be one to keep people talking!

    Pick yourself up off the floor!

    This style shoot location was at a new venue called The Farmhouse in Montgomery Texas.  It showcases a bit more modern feel and features trends we are seeing for 2017 with fabulous color combinations in flours and decor.  The cake features a geode style design with fondant and gold leaf detailing.  Geodes can be done in a variety of colors and styles to match your wedding and really show an eye for the unusual but also contemporary classic without going outside the boundaries of wedding cake styles.

    Wedding cupcakes are still hugely popular to compliment a  smaller cake to cut or used as a stand a lone in a variety of flavors for everyone to enjoy.  Consider flavor and color when you choosing your wedding cupcakes to match your wedding or special event.  The cupcake tops can be styled using different and unique designs to add texture and dimension.  At the end of the day, you can have your cake and cupcakes too!

    Optional Wedding Desserts and Dessert Buffets

    One thing I often hear from many of our clients is, “I want something unique to us”, “something original and tasty… something our guests will enjoy and remember.”  For some, planning these small details can be overwhelming and most of the time, after spending just a few moments listening to their vision I can get an idea of something unique for them to try or incorporate into their dessert station.  We love hand crafting off menu dessert items.  

    Mini desserts and sweets tables can sometimes be more costly than doing a wedding cake to serve the entire guest count so it’s important to have a realistic budget in mind when planning this type of idea.

    Depending on the labor required of the dessert and the size of the dessert, it can be a bit of a trick trying to figure out how  many items you need of each sweet treat.  That’s where we come in! We will discuss options that are affordable, personalized and unique to your favorite flavors.  For example: mini strawberry shortcakes, tiramisu, chocolate trifles and banana puddings can be done in small disposable cups your guests can easily handle with drink in hand!  Other options are our decadent buttercream topped brownies and gourmet cookies, cake pops, mini cheesecakes and mini cupcakes.  Whatever your flavor, we can help design the perfect dessert table around your favorites with a budget that won’t break the bank and a presentation to leave your guests snap chatting and facebook posting pictures to prove they were at the event of the year!
