Wedding cakes have evolved a lot in the last years. Because of television series like Cake Boss & Cake Wars, we all know that everything can be made into a cake and that they are real artists that works in that field. I must admit that after a few seasons of these series, I was a bit tired of it and disinterested. When I started on Pinterest, I never looked at Cakes boards. Everything changed a few weeks ago.
I was impressed by the beauty and the perfection of the flowers on Andrée & Jean’s cake, which sort of got me into it.
Then I started to look around everyone’s cake boards and I got hooked! It’s been weeks that most of my pins are cakes. But not any cake, I’m VERY picky. I don’t marvel at any sort of embellishment. I like unique, different, colourful, delicate. I’m really not into traditional. I think my obsession just got fulfilled after spending hours on someone’s board which had more than 28 000 pins! I can now share with you my observations and my findings.
First observation: lots of work doesn’t necessarily equal beautiful. Sometimes, too much is just too much.
I have to tell you that this is my personal taste and taste shouldn’t be discussed. If you don’t agree with my observations or my favorites, who am I to tell you that you’re wrong? You’re entitled to your own opinion and I totally respect that.
Second observation: simple can be stunning.
Third observation: it’s NEVER too colourful!
Fourth observation: the line between gorgeous and kitsch is very thin, as you can see with those examples who are, in my opinion, just on the border of good taste.
Fifth observation: traditional, even if it’s not my cup of tea, can be beautiful.
You can find all these cakes on my Pinterest boards at http://pinterest.com/francemo, with the links to their own websites. In my next posts, I will show you gorgeous examples of theme cakes, that will continue to dazzle you!
