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


Chocolate Wedding Cake


I love the idea of a chocolate wedding cake.

Sure it might seem like a crazy idea – serving a chocolate cake with chocolate icing – but that’s why I love it!

You can’t go wrong with chocolate cake! 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


Rice Krispie Treat Wedding Cake


One of my favorite treats to whip up has to be Rice Krispie Treats – all ooey and gooey with extra marshmallows.

It’s an easy dessert to make and it’s guaranteed to please even the pickiest of dessert eaters.

So, how fun would it be to serve a Rice Krispie wedding cake? This has to be one of the best non-traditional wedding cake ideas I’ve seen. Read More

Wedding cakes with sprinkles seem to be all the rage lately and it’s easy to see why.

These cakes are so fun and whimsical – perfect for the happiest day ever!

But what if your wedding cake didn’t just have sprinkles on the outside? What if you also had them on the inside?

Now that’s genius. Read More


Doughnut Wedding Cake


Sometimes I crave doughnuts.

I’m talking about those fresh-from-the-bakery, crispy on the outside doughnuts that make you all warm and fuzzy inside.

And if you love doughnuts as much as I do, it would be so much fun to serve doughnuts as your wedding cake!

Talk about an unexpected cake! Read More

And today’s naked wedding cake is the ideal modern cake for a late-fall wedding.

The three-tiered cake fits the “naked wedding cake” mold as it isĀ  sans icing on the outside. But look at all that icing in between the layers! Read More
