Trendspotting: Boston

Taking the Cake

The Idea: Skip the all-American white wedding cake and serve a dessert of a different sort. At one Boston wedding, guests indulged in a croquembouche, a tower of custard-filled pastries.

Why We Love It: The French wedding confection can be tastier than some American wedding cakes, and the stacked pastries look just as dramatic as their tiered counterparts. —Meredith Bodgas
