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.

Blue Lace Wedding 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

Dark Wedding Cake

As much as I love the traditional white wedding cake, every now and then it’s nice to mix things up and think about non-traditional cakes.

The idea of a black frosted cake might seem odd to some but I think it’s a great idea for an elegant winter wedding.

A black and gold cake would be a bit too dramatic in the middle of summer. Read More
