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.
I’m not sure how I feel about today’s featured wedding cake.
There’s almost too much going on for one cake. I love the light blue icing and the sprinkle layers. I also love the deep red ribbons between tiers.
But the red flowers with peppermint candy centers? Those are pretty too. But put together – it just seems so busy at first glance. Read More
Purple is my absolute favorite color. It’s the color of royalty and it’s my birthstone.
And had I given it much thought, I would have added purple to my wedding color scheme all those years ago. Like, maybe by having a purple wedding cake.
Just like today’s featured cake.

If there’s one color I love to see on a wedding cake it is blue – specifically a light blue that was made famous by a particular jewelry company.
Today’s featured cake is that lovely shade of blue and the addition of a lace overlay piped onto the cake takes it to the next level for sure.
This cake is elegant and classic and it could also fill the role of “something blue” at the wedding. Read More
