After quite a few years of seeing unique dessert offerings such as doughnuts, cupcakes and pies substituted for the wedding cake, the traditional cake is back in! Experts are saying we should expect to see a return to the prototypical wedding cake for many more weddings in 2017.
Cakes stacked in three or four tiers (or even more to serve the largest guest lists!) mainly in classic white buttercream with just the right amount of refined embellishment are what this year’s brides and grooms are requesting. And it’s easy to see why… these wedding cakes are time-honored and appreciated by everyone, fit perfectly with every style of wedding and are easy to dress up with subtle hints of your wedding theme or colors.
Tall, tiered white cakes also are the perfect medium for adding very imaginative, dramatic touches to a wedding reception. Everything from fresh flowers to fondant lace appliqués to jewelry or even feathers are stunning when graced along multiple tiers and make breathtaking statements on display.
In addition to so many wonderful bakeries in our area, we’re lucky to have two local wedding venues who always craft such gorgeous classic cakes! The Merion and all the venues owned and managed by Cescaphe Event Group have renowned pastry chef teams that create the highest quality and most beautiful custom wedding cakes around. Need examples? Be sure to check out Sarina and Richard’s elegant wedding event at the Merion, Olivia and Justin’s beautiful wedding at Tendenza and Kaitlyn and Michael’s glamorous Down Town Club wedding for just a few of these delightful and delectable desserts!
