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.

White Wedding Cake with Blue Flowers

Lately I’ve been daydreaming about the beach. A lot.

This is likely due to the fact that very soon I’ll be lounging on a beach in the Caribbean without a care in the world.

But it also got me thinking about beach-themed wedding cakes since it is the perfect time of year for a beach wedding.

And then I found this cake and fell in love. Read More

Naked Sprinkles Wedding Cake

I will admit that I have a love-hate relationship with “naked” (non-frosted) wedding cakes.

On one hand I love the elegance and modern vibe of the cakes.

But on the other hand I’m a frosting kind of girl – the more the merrier. So a cake that purposely lacks frosting is suspect.

However, I do love this naked wedding cake if only because the cake batter has sprinkles baked in, giving it a very spring-y, colorful vibe! Read More

Confetti Wedding Cake

So my wedding cake obsession of late has been fun and whimsical cakes covered in sprinkles.

It’s not that I like eating sprinkles (I don’t – it’s the texture) but I looove the way they look on cakes. And when they’re used on wedding cakes it is so unique and non-traditional that the cakes always go in the “win” column.

Today’s featured cake is no exception. Read More

If you’re going to use sprinkles on your wedding cake you can either go big – and decorate the entire cake with sprinkles – or go more subtle, like today’s cake. Read More

Wedding Cake with Crystallized Sugar Candy

I’m always looking for something different and unique when it comes to wedding cakes.

Today’s cake fits that bill … and then some!

We all remember eating rock candy as kids, right? Those sticks covered in crystallized sugar that almost broke our teeth? Now as grownups maybe we’ll get a stick of rock candy with a fancy espresso – a stick of sugar to sweeten the coffee.

But what if you could have rock candy on your wedding cake? That would be amazing! And delicious. Read More
