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.

Three-tier Chocolate Wedding Cake

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

Black Wedding Cake with Cascading White Flowers

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

I’m always on the lookout for non-traditional wedding cakes. I love the idea of serving something that isn’t cake like pancakes, rice krispie treats, or even doughnuts.

Naked Wedding Cake with Strawberries

If there’s one fruit that makes me think of all things summer it is the strawberry.

It could be the dead of winter (like right now) and if I buy strawberries at the store I feel a little more hopeful about warm weather that is coming down the pike.

Which brings me to today’s wedding cake. This lovely, simple one-tier cake adorned with strawberries. Read More
