On October 3, 2011, The Wedding Salon had another successful event in The Windy City at The W City Center! As the nation’s premier luxury bridal event, we were so excited to see The Chicago Market come together to showcase some of the hottest up and coming trends for 2012. We had several bakeries attend and share their knowledge of popular dessert trends for the year to come!
In 2012, we will see brides deviating from the wedding cake and instead opting for cookie-cupcake towers, such as those seen by Cookies by Joey. Engaged couples enjoyed this never-before seen cookie cupcake with stacked cookies in cupcake liners topped with freshly made buttercream & flowers.
Oak Mill Bakery revealed that brides are no longer looking to their wedding gown for wedding cake inspiration but are looking to their favorite designers to capture ideas for the design of their cake.
Wildflour Bakery chose to recreate hand-painted silk flowers from the fashion industry to decorate their exotic flavored cakes. We are noticing the popularity of hand-painted flowers for a classic and trendy decoration that will be sure to make your wedding cake stand out!
