What is the trend for 2005?

Every time a new year starts, we get a lot of e-mails with these questions. Finally, we have gathered some of the industry's veterans and budding professionals to share their observations on last year's styles and most importantly, their forecasts for this year's wedding trends.

Wedding Cake Trends

Ms. Judy Uson has been designing and creating beautiful wedding cakes since 1998. She has also conducted several trainings and workshops on cake artistry. She is the woman behind The Cake Artist.

Last year, we saw an increase in demand for whimsical, wacky, playful, and uncommon cake designs.

Some examples of these are the luggage cake with a cartoon-like replica of the couple, or an insignia or memento of a special place or occasion. Cakes shaped like pillows, balloons, flower pots or even tea cups have been popular.

The Cake Artist, Ms. Judy Uson

For year 2005, I foresee more couples paying attention to the tiniest details of their wedding cake by ordering special cake flavors, matching the colors of their motif, and even incorporating the bride's flower bouquet and having it custom-made in the form of sugar gumpaste flowers.
