One of my favorite cake vendors that I have worked with recently is Deborah Lauren of City Sweets. City Sweets is a bakery located in New York that has exceptional cake and confections. It is known for their variety of wonderful flavors and contemporary designs. I had a chance to chat with Deborah for a few minutes about new flavors and trends in wedding cakes. She infuses a lot of flavors together to make combinations that are sure to be a treat for your taste buds!
Some of the new flavors Deborah features are:
- Lemon Verbana
- Chocolate Chili
- Red Velvet Chili
- Red Velvet Almond
- Red Velvet Cherry
- Lavender Chocolate
Some of the new trends Deborah talked about in bridal cakes are more simple designs. Brides do not generally go for the traditional cake with flowers and bows, but rather, more contemporary ones. Now the cakes are made more artistically, and with more graphic designs and prints, such as one big flower on a simpler cake. Another big trend is using metallic colors as opposed to traditional white. Deborah also says that more brides usually opt for taller and thinner cakes, one’s that look more grand in appearance as the cake really serves as a piece of art at a wedding.
I had a great time chatting with Deborah and learning more about the new flavors she’s featuring. To check out some of Deborah’s delicious work, visit her website at www.citysweets.com.
