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.

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

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

Modern Green and White Wedding Cake

Green wedding cakes aren’t something we normally feature around here, except maybe around the holidays.

But if you think about it – and look at today’s featured cake – green cakes are quite amazing.

It’s not a color you’d think about when considering a wedding cake, unless of course your favorite color is green.

However, it’s a lovely shade when paired with a modern white cake. Read More

So, if you and your love are true Potterheads this just might be the perfect cake topper for your Muggle wedding. 😉 Read More
