Ruffles are one of the top trends in celebration cakes for 2014. Many were available last year, too, but the variety of ways we are seeing ruffles used this year is diverse. From asymmetrical to circular ruffles, they are proving very popular! The beauty of a ruffle is it gives movement to a cake without it being floral.

If you are a Pinterest and DIY lover, search for ‘bunny jars’ and you will find some FAB tutorials on creating these fun little jars! To add a touch of floral, a table sign was added by Silver Deer, which is also a great way to personalize your table.  By mixing and matching lots of pastel cake stands, sweets and jars, you’ll walk away with everyone wanting YOU to help them at their next party!

  • Lacking inspiration? Find an object and use that as your inspiration. It could be as simple as an old vintage tablecloth that belongs to your grandma, a gorgeous wall backdrop at your venue, colorful jars or cake stands, floral arrangement or the obvious – your cake! Once you have found your main inspiration, everything else will fall into place.
  • Think about textures. It may not be obvious, but have a variety of sweets and cakes available to create interest.
  • Don’t like pastels? Then use colors that suit you and add subtle touches of Spring like the bunny jars above. It doesn’t have to be obvious.
  • Leave it to the experts! Cake makers and dessert table stylists are a lot more specialized than you think and it can really take away the stress on you for the big event.
