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.
This week we’re thinking about all things green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day!
And while it isn’t easy being green when you’re talking about wedding cakes, it is quite pretty.
Also, you can’t get more “spring-y” than green. That’s one of the things we love most about spring – everything is turning green!
Today’s cake takes a unique turn with the color green as it’s more of a lime green than a “grassy green.” Read More
