TREND ALERT: Drip Cakes #ForYourWeddingCake #DripCakes2017

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!”Image result for drip cakes

Cakes by Cliff, made this lavish, yet also understated-but-still-bold, cotton candy inspired, buttercream Drip Cake. We adore the wooden pedestal it is elevated on, too:

These cakes can be sophisticated and elegant — yet they always convey loads of whimsy. The chic one below is reminiscent of the inside of a large, gorgeous seashell and would add tons of “oophmfff” to a beach wedding.

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.”

Here is a helpful chart to help you get maximum enjoyment out of your pint:

The darling of countless YouTubers, Halo Top can be enjoyed on practically any diet.

So we bought our first pint last week, and since that happy day we have now tried four flavors: Cookie Dough, Birthday Cake, Chocolate and Vanilla Bean. They are crazy delicious, people. The Cookie Dough is my fave and the hubs loves Birthday Cake. But they are all next level tasting! The texture is just exactly like real ice cream. There is no aftertaste or weird chemically tang. The flavors taste full of fat and sugar and everything unhealthy, but, somehow they are guilt-free, low-calorie and healthy. Who knows what kinds of special voodoo they have going on at the Halo Top factory, but dang we are thankful. Now if Halo Top could just use their alien-technology and branch out into cakes, cookies and french bread we will be eating like Kings and looking like super models. YES!

Here is a comprehensive list of their flavors, so you can make your  very own personal shopping list:
