Cakes styles you never get tired of seeing

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 

Minnie Mouse cakes have to be my favorite. No matter how many times I see them, they still give me such delight. I think most of the cakes I've saved in my favorites are Minnie Mouse Cakes. 

 

In addition to that I can't get enough of (in no particular order):

 

1) Chevron

2) Ombre Cakes

3) Cakes with a really tall tier

4) Graphic design cakes

5) Farm/barnyard cakes

6) Cakes with one or two really large flowers (peony or fantasy)

7) Penguins on the ice style cakes

8) Lambeth style piping

9) Sheet cakes in the "Corrie76" style 

 

What are your favs?

I like any sort of Dr Seuss inspired cakes- tall, bright, topsy, over the top decoration etc.

I like to see Lambeth style cakes and hand painting on fondant.

Tall cakes with a single large flower, especially if the fondant/ buttercream is white.

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

Yes, I've always wondered how folks get that illustrated look on those cakes. Yes, they are amazing.

Lambeth definately :) 

All Buttercream

Extreme, simple sheet cakes.  There is so much room to create beauty:)

I love cakes for babies. Especially with sweet baby animals on them. I also love sunsets painted on cakes with silhouettes. I like clean, simple, elegant cakes that are understated but stunning! I love one perfect, life-like flower.  On the flip side, I think I will scream if I have to look at one more baby rump cake! Ugggh! Not too keen on the pregnant belly with the footprint either. Sorry to bring in a negative to the topic!

I love basically all of the cake designs. Each is unique in their own special way!!!

Stained glass cake designs. Always amazed, always impressed, and always in awe of the beauty. Now if I can just get my nerve up to try it!

I love cakes with little animals for children too, with the cakes covered in pastel buttercream of fondant. They look so sweet. I'm also not a fan of the belly cakes. I thought it was just me! It seems a bit creepy, but to each their own I guess.

I love all of these too! I guess I just like cake!

 

Not a fan of belly cakes or baby butt cakes either.

Indeed. Most of my cakes are severely simple: single-layer sheet cake, served "in pan" (could that perhaps be termed "family style"?), or perhaps unfrosted pound cakes baked in a Bundt mold. With just "the family pattern" on the frosting (or piped strawberry shapes, for a strawberry marble), with selected areas left flat and blank for occasion-specific decorations.

Less is more.

 

(I will say that the only reason why I didn't use "the family pattern" on the Leland Awards cake was that I simply ran out of time.

The plan was to apply "the family pattern" around the pictures and piped lettering, instead of leaving it looking like a rustic stucco job.)

I love tiered cakes; when the choice is mine I will ALWAYS do tiers, even if I need to use a dummy. I do my best to talk my customers into tiers, too. I'd much rather do a 7" and 4" tiered cake than a 10" round. As for design, this may change in 6 months but for now I'm still really in love with the ombre ruffle/frill look and other fabric effects like ribbon flowers and bows. Also the tall tiers with a single stunning gumpaste flower.
