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.
