modern wedding cakes
I loooove the idea of serving a chocolate cake at a wedding reception.
It’s becoming THE thing to do – get away from the traditional white wedding cake and serve something a bit different.
Today’s featured cake would be gorgeous any time of year, but I’d love to see it in the early spring when the temperatures are still a bit chilly. Read More
We’re huge fans of chocolate cake here at A Wedding Cake Blog. We looove chocolate cake and we also love the idea of a chocolate wedding cake.
It’s so fun and somewhat non-traditional to serve a chocolate wedding cake. (We’re talking all chocolate, not just a tier or two).
And this nearly-naked chocolate cake with a rustic vibe is a perfect cake for your early spring wedding. Read More
Can you feel it? Fall is almost here!
And that means it is time to start talking about dark and dramatic – and in today’s case – chocolate wedding cakes!
I love the dramatic look of today’s cake – a tower of dark chocolate icing adorned with a few white flower details.
It’s the perfect cake for a fall wedding. Read More
Right now it is full-on strawberry season here in the Midwest. It’s actually a rather short season as “fruit seasons” go, but we take full advantage of it, enjoying all things strawberry for a few wonderful weeks.
And one of my favorite things has to be chocolate-covered strawberries. There’s just something so decadent about that combination.
Which is probably why I’m loving today’s cake. Read More
I will admit that I have a love-hate relationship with “naked” (non-frosted) wedding cakes.
On one hand I love the elegance and modern vibe of the cakes.
But on the other hand I’m a frosting kind of girl – the more the merrier. So a cake that purposely lacks frosting is suspect.
However, I do love this naked wedding cake if only because the cake batter has sprinkles baked in, giving it a very spring-y, colorful vibe! Read More
I’m always looking for something different and unique when it comes to wedding cakes.
Today’s cake fits that bill … and then some!
We all remember eating rock candy as kids, right? Those sticks covered in crystallized sugar that almost broke our teeth? Now as grownups maybe we’ll get a stick of rock candy with a fancy espresso – a stick of sugar to sweeten the coffee.
But what if you could have rock candy on your wedding cake? That would be amazing! And delicious. Read More
Chocolate cakes as wedding cakes is a trend I can completely support.
I love the idea of serving up something nontraditional – like this dark chocolate wedding cake.
It’s so dramatic and unexpected which makes it perfect!
Of course a cake like this would be great at a winter wedding when it’s cold outside. Read More
Sometimes it’s fun to break from tradition and think outside the cake box, especially if you’re looking for a fun and modern twist for your wedding cake.
Take today’s cake for example.
It has several modern details that make it the perfect cake for your ultra chic and modern wedding reception.
The three-tier cake uses black ribbon to accentuate the tiers, while some fancy detail work makes the bottom tier stand out. Read More
I have a confession to make – I love Oreo cookies.
Which is probably why I had to choose today’s wedding cake to showcase. It looks like a stack of Oreos. OK, well it looks like a stack of Oreos to me.
I’ll also confess that I’m not a huge fan of naked wedding cakes. I’m too much of a frosting fan to purposely eat a cake that lacks frosting.
However, this naked dark chocolate cake is really stunning because of its lack of frosting. The white icing peeking out between the tiers adds just the right amount of drama to this cake. Read More
If there’s one thing I wish I could do over from my wedding so many years ago it would be to include chocolate in my wedding cake.
Back in the day it was all about the white wedding cake – sure the flavors under the icing could vary, but standard white icing was all the rage.
But now I love the idea of serving a chocolate cake with chocolate icing because your guests will never expect it! Read More
