Why Large Traditional Wedding Cakes are out of style. And what is the new trend that is replacing them! So many of us remember when our older family members were getting married back in the 1980’s, 1990’s, and even the early 2000’s. They were over the top. The gaudy dresses, the budgets, and the huge, some say beautiful, but not very delicious, and extremely expensive. Why did people go for such an expense to have an over the top cake? One big reason is because it was decorative. We have spoken with, and worked with dozens of bakers and most of them have said the glory days of over-priced Wedding cake is over. People are becoming increasing more fickle with what and who they have at their Wedding. Brides and grooms, especially locally in Charlotte, are making their money go further and going for variety. One way they can do this is cutting down on the expense of a large, traditional Wedding cake. Knowing that these can cost upwards of $2000 or more in many places, couples are choosing smaller cakes and adding a dessert table. So what can you typically find in a dessert table? Some choices are a cake, maybe cupcakes, cookies, cake pops, macaroons, brownies, and candy bars or candy buffets.
Why is this a better choice for people having a celebration like a Wedding? It all comes down to value and variety. People will always want a Wedding cake at their Wedding, but most people will agree that having other treats like cookies, brownies, or a candy buffet is an excellent addition to the old standby for virtually the same price. Second to the value and variety of a dessert table is the plain fact that these also are used as a decoration. Think about it, what looks better on a 6-foot or an 8-foot table, a standalone cake or the size, depth, and dimension of tons of treats? The answer is simple, dessert tables, including candy bars, are in. Your 1990 era Wedding cake is out! Progress is beautiful, and so should your Wedding reception.
