This year, the naked cakes, the presence of fruit and the candy tables continues to dominate, we tell you all the details!
The simplicity and presence of natural foods is transferred to the nuptial cakes sector.
The bridal cake is maybe the menu item that has the most prominence in a wedding menu. As is happening with all the details that surround a ceremony, the bridal cakes of today move away from the traditional white cakes topped with the figurines of the couple.
Currently, original cakes are sought, with textures and novel styles that surprise the guests, both in aesthetics and taste. The great versatility of the confectioners allows us to adapt the cake to the style of the ceremony.
The reign of the ‘naked cakes’ continues
Among the current trends, the most prominent is the naked cake or “naked cake”. This preparation is characterized by not having any type of cover (no fondant, no frosting or meringue …). Therefore, you can see the sponge cake filled with creams and decorated with fruits or flowers. These cakes are made up of different layers of sponge cake, this one must be spongy, which are mounted one on top of the other. Some type of cream or filling is put between layer and layer. You can also play with the cake by assembling the cake with layers of different flavors.
The table of sweets
As we mentioned before, banquets are no longer those long menus in which, with all the guests seated, they went from one dish to another. Now, more and more couples are opting for a cocktail-type menu or opt for different food stands or food trucks. That is why, in some occasions, the bridal cake gives way to a table full of pastries, with a careful attention to detail that is maintained during the dessert and known as “re-dinner”. In this way, you can offer cakes or sweets of different flavors, combine it with tarts, chocolates or macaron to satisfy all the guests.
Do not miss the golden details
Another of the trendiest trends today is to give the cake a touch of gold in different formats. It will always depend on how risky the couple wants to be. Whether in small specks or in the form of glitter, covering the whole cake or simply as a decorative element, the gold will be present in the wedding cake. The cakes with gold leaves embedded, distributed by the surface of the cake in small quantities are trend. The cake that makes the base of the cake is usually white or with nude colors, which gives all the prominence to the details in gold.
Fruits and flowers, also protagonists
Choose the cake you choose, it is very likely that it comes accompanied by flowers or fruits. The tendency is to opt for cakes that are not too large, of simple aesthetics, adorned with natural decorations. Fruits gain prominence among the star flavors, hence they are also present in natural format as an ornament. Carrot cake, squash cakes, berries, etc., are common among the choices of brides and grooms.
