traditional wedding cakes

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hello
to start, I really love traditional wedding cakes but some people say it's old fashoned. Is it weird still wanting to make the old school cakes? ( with the fountains, the buttercream roses and swags, the bells and pillars and stuff) cause always when people order a cake and they say that they let me design it I make it so traditional as possible

I love doing traditional cakes , I love making sugar flowers large cascading bouquets and arrangements . Lots of filler flowers ribbon etc. All on lovely fondant iced cake , with nice piping. Even better if underneath it happens to be fruitcake .

Cultural trends tend to be cyclical, so it's only a matter of time before the more traditional designs become trendy again.

You can find almost all the "traditional" ("old-fashioned") stuff on Global Sugar Art or sugar...craft...com. You can also do searches on eBay and you'll find a lot of stuff popping up.

I love the traditional style from the 60's and 70's and 80's. kakeladi~~Your cake is gorgeous. Now THAT'S a wedding cake! It takes up the whole table and presents a magnificent centerpiece for the reception hall.

As far as this traditional/classic/old-fashioned style being "weird"; well....that's in the eye of the beholder. If the bride looks at a photo of kakeladi's cake for an example and screams, "Yippee! That's It!", then go for it. If she screws up her face and says that look is a little old-fashioned, suggest some other design.

kakeladi your cake is sooooooo pretty! I just love making the traditional type wedding cakes too! Those were the first types of wedding cakes I made. I still love making them and try to infuse the new with old.

Country Kitchen http://www.countrykitchensa.com/shops/ ships outside the US. I have had very good results when I have ordered from them. They do carry cake ruffles, staircases and fountains.
