Let Them Eat Cake

Let me tell you something, after the wedding at Inn at Laurel Point, a Victoria BC Hotel,  we hear alot of talk – ok gossip.  Seriously, what are the two most important things at a wedding?  If you said the bride and groom you’ve clearly never been a bride.  The correct answer of course is the dress and the cake!

2012 cake trends include cakes with romantic frills and ruffles and open flowers.  White wedding cakes be it vintage or modern are a timeless confection that will never be out of style.  Buttercream icing with that “just whipped” look versus fondant.  And one of my favorites is multiples of single tiered cakes.  This trend allows for more flavors and creates a beautiful dessert table.  Our Pastry Chef April Iverson is a cake wizard – you dream it she will make it happen.  So take a wander through some of wedding cake images for even more inspiration.

Gourment cupcakes, tired donut cake, miniature desserts including cake pops, tarts and pies, funky shaped cakes that speak to your personality and sweet tables.  They are not for bat mitzvahs anymore.  Mazel tov!  And have you heard about savory cupcakes.  While traditional cupcakes aren’t going anywhere, savory cupcakes are a unique idea you can provide.  Imagine mini meatloaf cupcakes topped with mashed potato icing and grated parmesan cheese as a late night snack!

Qu’ils mangent de la brioche - but not too much cake my dear or they will be talking about you and your dress!
