As brides browsed the inspiration galleries at Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta at Southern Exchange Ballrooms, they were met with the decadence of the Gigi’s Cupcakes display. We caught up with Amanda Karmazin, Wedding Consultant at Gigi’s Cupcakes at The Forum, to talk wedding trends, Fall flavors, and, of course, cupcakes.

Marble and Gold and Champagne, Oh My!
Amanda clued us in to some of the hot trends she’s seeing in wedding cake designs this year. One of the hottest is marble. Marble look cakes, especially in grey with gold veins throughout, have been very popular this year. And speaking of gold, another huge trend that Amanda mentioned is gold leaf. “Gold is everywhere,” says Amanda. Whether it’s a line of gold drawn through the design, or a tier of gold sequins, Brides are all about their shine.
Bubbles aren’t just for bottles anymore, either. Gigi’s Cupcakes at The Forum has also been doing a lot of champagne cakes for their wedding clients. “Champagne syrup and sparkling white grape juice gives [the cake] extra fluffiness.”
