Wedding Cake Flavors for 2010
Are you planning on getting hitched this year? If you are, there are many new things that you should be aware of especially when it comes to the trends in wedding food.
One of the things that you should not forget to know is the new wedding cake flavors for 2010. Just like wedding gowns and themes, there are also fads when it comes to the cakes made for weddings.
The classic chocolate cake with fondant icing is still very much in because chocolate never really goes out of taste. However, there are a few more dominant cake themes and flavors that you should consider once you start planning for the big day.
Raspberry Filled Cakes- Fruit is definitely in this year. Yes, people are looking to indulge every now and then and attending weddings is definitely on the top of the list when it comes to binging but it would be nice to have something that is just as sinfully good but is still very healthy.
Chiffon Cake with White Butter Cream and Whip Cream Frosting- For those couples that have the sweet tooth, this is the perfect cake. Most people like the frosting part best so you might as well make the most of it. This is also shaping up to be the “practical wedding cake” because it costs a lot less than the over the top kinds. All you have to pay for is pretty much the frosting because the cost of the chiffon base is almost bupkus.
Coffee Cake with Crushed Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans- Coffee and chocolate lovers will certainly delight in this cake because it has everything that anyone would want in a dessert. It is very rich but healthy (there are plenty of antioxidants in coffee beans) so you will not feel guilty in sinking your teeth to this very sinful delight.
Red Velvet Cake- This one is the epitome of elegance and richness. If you want to go all out with your cake, this is the way to go. It entertains the palate like a string quartet or an aria singer. It is going to cost you an arm and a leg but it will be well worth it.
In choosing the wedding cake for your reception, always consider your budget, personal taste, and the people you are going to invite to celebrate your union. Ultimately, it boils down to what you want to have on your wedding day and how much you are willing to pay to get it.
