Kinda kooky, very amusing and highly delish, Drip Cakes are trending red hot this year for weddings! Drip Cakes can be naked, multi-tiered or uber-ornate. All that’s required is a baker’s imagination and lots of yummy drizzle running off the top of the cake. Covered with anything and everything, from fruit to flowers to candy, these confections are the perfect artistic vehicle to enhance your ceremony’s theme. Whatever your color story or vision may be, a Drip Cake can be whipped up to match. The cakes are eye-catching, frivolously fun and memorable. Your guests will be sure to speak fondly of them long after your special day. “Remember that brilliant, drippy cake you had?,” they’ll say. “Covered in pirouettes, flowers and strawberries? That was SOME cake!” You’ll respond, “Yes, I loved that cake!”

Ummm, YEAH, we love cake designer Agnes de Sucre’s thought process (as we imagine it) for this fabulous confection. “Let’s add some frosted donuts AND some macaroons to our triple-decker drip cake. And, for garnish, perhaps sprinkle on a spattering of pink popcorn, edible roses and luscious chocolatey drips.”
