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.


Gold and White Wedding Cake for Fall


Two of my favorite colors on a wedding cake are white and gold.

There’s just something about the color combination that is elegant and traditional.

Plus you can’t go wrong using gold at the holidays.

Today’s cake is rustic with a touch of elegance thanks to the addition of gold flakes on each tier.

The cake looks like a million bucks, but we’re sure it doesn’t cost that much. Read More


Let Them Eat Pie!


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.

Which is why we’re talking about wedding pie today instead of wedding cake. Read More


White Wedding Cake with Ivy


As much as I love an over-the-top wedding cake every now and then, I really like the simple and elegant wedding cake too.

Sometimes you don’t need a lot of stuff on the cake to make it gorgeous.

Take today’s cake for example. Read More


Rustic Fall Cake with Acorns


We raked a lot of leaves over the weekend around here. The trees are just past peak color and the leaves are raining down in our yards.

Another thing raining down – acorns!

Which brings us to today’s fall-inspired wedding cake featuring colorful fall leaves and acorns.

This one-tier cake practically screams fall … in an elegant and refined manner of course. Read More


Fall-Inspired Wedding Cake


The Halloween decorations are down and now it’s time to think about all things rustic and fall-like!

To celebrate the beauty that is fall, it only seems appropriate to highlight a gorgeous and rustic fall wedding cake that incorporates a lot of fall into its look.

I love the bark-like look of the top tiers of this cake – it gives the cake a nice rustic vibe without being too harsh. Read More


Ice Cream Wedding Cake


If there’s one thing I love more than wedding cake, it has to be ice cream.

So, when I saw this ice cream wedding cake it was as if all my dessert dreams came true!

I love the idea of non-traditional wedding cakes – whether we’re talking naked wedding cakes or cakes made out of rounds of cheese. The crazier the better I say. Read More


Wedding Cake Tower


I love cupcakes. And if given the chance I’d serve cupcakes at every celebration I host, including a wedding reception.

Sadly, when I was married all those years ago the wedding cupcake trend hadn’t happened yet.

But now that cupcakes are all the rage, it is the perfect time to add some cupcake fun to your reception dessert table!

I love the idea in today’s featured cake photo – a small wedding cake (for the newlyweds) and cupcakes for all the guests. You could have so much fun with this concept – think of the flavors you could have with those cupcakes!

You could choose seasonal flavors, classics like white and chocolate, and even fan favorites like red velvet (my all-time favorite cake flavor).

And to add even more deliciousness to the party, make sure you have cute take-home boxes and enough cupcakes for you guests to take one for the road.

You’ll find this cupcake and cake tower here.


Fall Wedding Cake with Fresh Flowers


I love everything about fall – even the fact that, where I live fall means you pull out all the summer flowers. This is OK with me because I just replace them with colorful mums!

I love the dark hues of some of the mums and other fall-ish blooms that are perfect for this time of year.

And I also love seeing floral wedding cakes deep in the falls season. Just because the temps are cooler and the leaves are turning doesn’t mean you can’t add some colorful blooms to your wedding cake! Read More


Pumpkin Wedding Cake


Of the best things about fall is the annual visit to the local pumpkin farm. We get to pick our own pumpkins out in the fields and then it’s time to buy pumpkin doughnuts.

There’s no denying that the pumpkins are the stars of the season.

And so, if you’re planning a fall wedding it only makes sense to add some pumpkins to your decor or even to the dessert table. Read More


Whimsical Chocolate Wedding Cake


If I had the chance to do my wedding cake over, I’m pretty sure there would be chocolate involved. As in, I’d have an all chocolate wedding cake.

Because, chocolate.

I love the idea of bucking a trend – white wedding cakes – and serving something you really love. Like chocolate cake. Or at least cake with chocolate icing. Read More
