Our Top 5 Cake Decorating Trend Predictions for 2016
Always on trend-watch
What makes decorating trends so fun to watch is how they evolve with time. Take the ombré cake of 2009 for example. What started out as a simple sponge with graduated layers of pink colour very quickly transformed into buttercream piping effects on the outside of the cake, then into fondant ruffles, then into blues, greens and purples, and finally rainbow ombré.
Being immersed in baking and decorating day and night, the team here at Queen see the very best from decorators around the world and can spot a trend before it’s even a ‘thing’. Here are our predictions for the year ahead. Click the images to see the original recipe.
