In a recent edition of my cake business newsletter, I advised my readers to offer products that appeal to a broad scope of customers — to serve the needs at all ranges of the market. Custom grooms cakes are a perfect example of this.
If you’re a fan of Ace of Cakes, you’ve no doubt heard about the Millennium Falcon Cake. But did you know that Jennifer Luxmore of Sin Desserts in Providence, RI mastered this extremely challenging cake as well? I love it!
Creating unique grooms cakes has become a profitable trend for cake decorators. It involves the mastery of baking as well as a strong sculptural sensibility. One must know how to create complex designs, carve forms and understand the limits of their medium. Keep in mind that 3D cakes, while almost entirely edible, are not always 100% cake. Duff for example, uses a rice krispie-like element in his cakes. Be creative and experiment!!
