Modern Wedding Cakes
The term “modern wedding cake” may mean different things to different people. Here at A Wedding Cake Blog, we take the term to mean anything with a contemporary feel; a cake that eschews the traditional white on white, piped and buttercreamed and trimmed with swags or roses. Modern may refer to a bold use of color, or a contemporary decor or shape. It may also refer to choosing something other than the grand, traditional tiered cake – a cake of macarons, for instance, or an assortment of individual cakes. Modern means that you are updating the tradition: perhaps you aren’t entirely throwing it out. You’re just giving it a breath of fresh air.
Ah, roses. These blooms are at the top of my favorite flowers list and I love finding wedding cakes that aren’t shy about showcasing roses!
Today’s cake is the perfect early summertime cake thanks to an abundance of roses and a gorgeous basket weave design in the icing. It really looks like a basket full of fresh flowers! Read More

Spring has officially (finally) sprung!

Ah, spring! It’s that time of year when everything is blooming and the flowers are gorgeous. Which means it is a great time to showcase some lovely floral wedding cakes.
I’m a BIG fan of black and white cakes. There is something just so elegant about a black and white cake – even if it’s a white cake with just a hint of black icing or ribbon.
And if you had bright blooms to that cake? Well, that’s just the bees knees. Read More
I love the idea of using sprinkles on a wedding cake, but not everyone is a fan of the tiny candies.
Which is why I love today’s featured cake – it showcases one tier of sprinkles while keeping an elegant and fun vibe.

It’s not secret that I’m a fan of dark and dramatic wedding cakes – especially those that use black icing.
That is such an unexpected choice for a wedding cake and it’s also perfect when you want to make a statement with your cake.
Of course a dark cake needs something bright to make it pop, and we love the addition of a cascade of bright white blooms. 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
