Happy 2013! I’m excited to kick off 2013 with Jem of the South’s Dessert Trends! Check them out.
1) Desserts 2.0
Be on the look out for desserts that were popular in recent years being upgraded to the 2.0 level. In other words, macarons won’t just be those cute little round desserts, they will be in various shapes and sizes like these Valentine macarons, snowman macarons and ice cream cone macarons. Other desserts going to the next level are cake pops (rose cake pops and dress cake pops) and cupcakes.

2) Classic Bread Pudding re-mixed
Gone are the days of your basic raisin bread pudding. The old classic dessert that was a recipe created as a way to use old stale bread without the bread going to wasting. Now bread pudding is getting a facelift and is showing up on restaurant menus and blogs. From Pecan Pie Bread Pudding to Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding, the possibilities are endless.
3) Everything Gold (And Silver)~ Metallic Desserts
I’m loving all of the gold and silver desserts that have popped up all over the web. Metallic designs are chic and very elegant. Even metallic accessories are a hit with desserts like these gold and silver candles from Party City. For your next girl’s night in, make it shiny and glittery with all gold or silver desserts. Use edible metallic glitter on cookies, cupcakes and more!
4) Put your Name on it ~Monogram Desserts
What better way to personalize a dessert than with a monogram? Monograms are classy and very chic and will add that extra touch of class to any desserts!
