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.

Black and White Cake with Macarons

I love cake. And cookies. And when those two sweet treats are combined in a gorgeous and elegant wedding cake? Well that makes me a happy person!

One of my favorite cookie is the macaron. And I love seeing macarons featured ON wedding cakes as a decoration.

Who needs fresh flowers when you can use fresh macarons? No one, that’s who! Read More

It’s getting close to that time of year again….autumn!

OK sure, it might still be hot and summer-like where you live but before we know it the leaves will be changing and pumpkin spice everything will be back on the shelves!

So today seems like a good day to think about a fall-inspired wedding cake. Read More

Naked Wedding Cake with Fresh Flowers

Let’s face it – it’s hot outside. And while I’m normally a fan of LOTS of icing on wedding cakes, in the summer I think the “naked” wedding cake trend is perfect.

And today’s featured cake is soooo pretty it doesn’t need much icing at all.

This four-tier cake features cakes of different flavors – looks like chocolate and vanilla – with gorgeous white icing between the layers. Read More

Seafood-Themed Groom’s Cake

I love the idea of a groom’s cake – a fun and delicious dessert that reflects your groom’s personality or is inspired by his hobbies.

And yes, every time I think about a groom’s cake I’m reminded of the red velvet armadillo cake with gray icing from the 80s hit movie Steel Magnolias. :-)

However, today we’re talking about a visually pleasing, fun groom’s cake! Read More

Wedding Cake with Fruit

If there’s one wedding cake trend I can really get behind it’s the use of fresh fruit on your wedding cake.

I especially love this idea when we’re in the middle of summer and all the fruit is so fresh and pretty and colorful.

A wedding cake adorned with deep red strawberries or raspberries or pretty blueberries is the ultimate summertime cake. Read More

White Wedding Cake with Chevron Designs

While brightly hued wedding cakes seem to be all the rage right now, there’s something to be said for an elegant all-white cake.

Think of an all-white wedding cake as a blank canvas. You can add any kind of embellishment from fresh flowers to greenery, and even a peek of modern art in the icing.

Take today’s featured cake fore example. Read More

Pop the Bubbly Cake Topper

It’s been a while since we featured a fun cake topper so today’s the day!

Even though I really love the idea of a “traditional” (read: old fashioned) cake topper with little figures of the happy couple on top of the cake, I’m also open to a more modern and fun cake topper. Read More
