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.

Next week is Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday.
Why do I love Thanksgiving so much? I could say “food” but in truth I love the pies for dessert.
I wait all year for a slice of pecan pie and a slice of pumpkin pie – both topped with crazy amounts of whipped cream.
As much as I love cake, I might love pie more.
