According to pastry chef and owner of Ava’s Cupcakes, Michelle Spell, the fondant cake trend is coming to an end and being replaced with CreamPunk Cakes. Most couples today want to cut into a cake made with only fresh ingredients. Fondant wrapped cakes can be about 7 days old before you actually eat a slice, and they don't always taste as great as you'd hope. CreamPunk Cakes are made fresh, with hand whipped buttercream frosting and feature a retro artistic edge with bold metal colors. The best part, CreamPunk Cakes can also be made gluten-free.
Below are three CreamPunk Cakes Michelle created fondant-free. Each cake features gold dusted popcorn, a chocolate ganache glaze, a variety of chocolate candies and the signature mini Ava’s Cupcake on top. These cakes will also fit any theme, from a fairytale inspired wedding, to a destination beach wedding to a rustic country barn and even a traditional wedding theme.
