Cake Trend: Cake Trios (Part III)

This week we’ve been exploring a current cake trend for 2011, cake trios!  When it comes to styling a display, everything simply looks better when grouped in threes.  Cake included!  Three individual cakes, each uniquely designed, arranged together in one cohesive display.  Varying heights, textures and techniques come together to create the perfect trifecta of cake!

We’re wrapping up the week with our third lovely cake trio.  After all this talk about the perfection of threes, it only seemed appropriate to feature 3 cake trios!  Today’s featured trio is a vintage yet elegant display by Cocoa & Fig.  Together with a group of Minnesota-based talent, Cocoa & Fig created this display for an inspiration shoot full of natural charm.  Set in a restored school house on a local farm, the theme was Heavenly and so were the cakes!  United by their textured buttercream icing and surrounded by picturesque desserts and flowers , we’re totally crushing on this Rustic Buttercream Cake Trio…

Laurie from Cocoa & Fig shared a few thoughts with us about this display:

“We were thrilled to be part of this ‘heavenly’ photo shoot in collaboration with some of the best Minnesota wedding vendors. The setting for this shoot was a country farm and old schoolhouse – the perfect backdrop for our rustic styled cakes and desserts which included Rhubarb Galettes, Berries and Cream Shooters, and Lemon Meringue Tarts, along with a trio of rustic buttercream iced cakes.”

Oh how I love the layered texturing on this two-tiered white beauty!  Simple, natural and oh-so-elegant.  Delightful little daisies are the perfect touch to finish off this rustic look.

Three beautiful buttercream cakes surrounded by rustic tarts and mini desserts… what is not to love about this charming cake trio?  From the pink ruffle cake perched on a dainty white stand to the Rhubarb Galettes and Berries & Cream Shooters, this entire display is just heavenly!
