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.
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
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
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

There’s something about a wedding cake decorated with sprinkles that I’m loving this spring!
I don’t know if it is the whimsical nature of the sprinkles or the fact that it’s a fun way to add some rainbows to your big day but I really love this trend.

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
