The trends for wedding desserts evolve and change very quickly. Recent trends have included cupcakes, both large and tiny, individual serving wedding cakes, doughnut tables and croquembouches.
The top trend dominating wedding desserts right now is wedding macarons. These tiny and tasty creations offer an astounding array of styles, flavors, colors, and arrangements, giving you nearly complete control over the taste and look of your wedding macarons.
With the advent in the middle of the 20th century of the double macaron by Louis Ernest Ladurée, a whole new world of macarons opened up; the two delicate macarons joined in dreamy deliciousness by a layer of exquisitely flavored cream, luscious ganache or sweet and fruity jelly.
While more traditional croquembouches (a pyramid of round choux pieces laced together by caramel threads) are extremely popular at weddings in Paris, the macaron pyramid is gaining popularity by leaps and bounds and is perfectly capable of lending a delightfully elegant French feel to your wedding desserts. If you’re planning on serving macarons at your wedding, here are some tips to ensure everything goes well.
