Cake Trend: Cake Trios (Part II)

Yesterday, we introduced you to a current cake trend for 2011… cake trios.  Three individual cakes, each with their own design, working together to create a perfect display of cake harmony!  Varying heights, textures and techniques are unified by a common thread to create one cohesive display.  And honestly, it’s hard enough to resist one cake let alone three!

Well, we’re continuing on with this trend today featuring a lovely trio of cakes created by Andrea Boudewijn, chef and owner of Superfine Bakery in Los Angeles.  These three cakes, in varying shades of mocha, cream and chocolate, are tied together by their fashion-inspired adornments.  Flirty sugar ‘fabric’ flowers edged in 24K gold mixed with gold buttons give this trio a great vintage vibe while remaining completely edible.   Proving yet again that three cakes are better than one, check out this charming Mocha Cake Trio

Andrea of Superfine Bakery shared a few thoughts with us about her charming cake trio:

“Brides are looking to create new and different ways of displaying their cakes, so I’m finding more of them receptive to the “deconstructed” cake — one that is expressed as a multiple cake table (I’ve done up to six cakes on one table) or one that is expressed as a coordinated trio, like this one.”

A few thoughts from Andrea about the design:

“The love note ribbons were inspired by a real couple’s love notes!  The one on the smallest cake reads ‘I’ll love you forever,’ and over on the chocolate medium cake reads ‘You’re the bomb, babe.’  I think every couple should be represented in some personal, romantic way on each cake, so this was our solution.”

Inside the darling exterior was almond cake soaked with coffee rum and layered with chocolate ganache and mocha buttercream.  Does that not sound delicious?!?  Yet another reason why three cakes are better than one!  A huge thank you to Andrea of Superfine Bakery for sharing her delightful Mocha Cake Trio with us today!
