According to Julia Hewitt, owner and main event producer for Eventures, Inc. (, a full service, event production company based in Los Angeles (past clients include Bob Saget and James Caan), modern brides are looking to be more creative and out-of-the-box with their wedding cakes. “The wedding cake is a great way for the bride and groom to express themselves and tell a little more of their story to their guests,” says Julia. “Lately, there has been a resurgence of vintage pieces used or created by local artists for the bride and groom. A lot of my brides have their cakes adorned to look like vintage lace doilies painted with their vows or a favorite poem.” Another trend is the use of real flowers to adorn cakes instead of buttercream or sugarpaste flowers. "The most important thing on these cakes is that the icing be super-smooth whether that is done with fondant or buttercream; the surface should appear clean and clear.”
