Cakes for contemporary weddings are not simple sweet desserts, but real works of art. Our designers are more talented than ever before in this field and their ideas express their passion for creating unique confections for the modern couple. Finding the perfect cake for your wedding is not a very difficult task, especially when the couple already knows what they want for the reception. It can be a personalized cake based on a unique theme, color, shape, flavor or motif, or it can be an artistic design recommended by the cake maker.
To make this job easy, start envisioning the ideal cake for you and your wedding. Many brides and grooms of today like to get ideas from pastry chefs or get inspired from amazing cake designs displayed on Internet. There are plenty of ideas to browse and follow in this sense. But it depends on your personal vision, taste and budget. Make sure that the theme or cake style you want is a feasible one. Find a talented designer in your local area and ask him to build you the cake of your dreams. Ask for his opinions in terms of color and flavor combinations, so that the cake can fit the season and formality of the wedding. The latest trends in wedding cakes show us that big layered confections are no longer the most modern selection for a contemporary couple.
The contrary, smaller designs are cuter and also more delicious. Miniature cakes, cupcake wedding cakes and single tier confections are all the rage right now. Multi-tier cakes have been replaced with smaller confections based on intense colors, asymmetrical shapes and bold flavors. The fresh floral decoration has also been replaced by an edible form of decorating a wedding cake. Our designers are very passionate about creating edible flowers and other figurines for modern cakes. Besides this, the color is also different. If traditional wedding cakes are based on one solid color, modern designs can feature a richer color mix. Your cake can feature a color or pattern on one tier and another one on the other tier.
Ombre, chevron and rainbow themed wedding cakes are beautiful examples in this sense. The shape of the contemporary cake is a bit more dynamic and imposing. Couples of today prefer square, hexagonal and asymmetrical tiers instead of classic cylindrical shapes. The traditional bride and groom figurine toppers are nowadays replaced by more humorous or artistic figurines and toppers. We can talk about fashion-inspired wedding cakes, where the cake mimics the fabric or texture of a bridal dress. Shimmering cakes based on edible glitter, gold dust and other metallic hue decorations are other voguish styles to consider for a 2012 wedding reception.
Weddings today are very fashionable. Our brides and grooms are only interested in what’s considered trendy and unique. The originality factor is the one that seems to guide the process of choice in many wedding fields of a couple. Every single accent and detail of the wedding must add to the unique look of the entire event. The wedding cake is by far one of the most appealing centerpieces of the evening. The cake must be eye-catchy, tasty and unique in the limelight. Modern wedding cakes are based on a lot of inedited details and decorations. They are nowadays meant to be less traditional and more personal.
This seems to be the motto of many brides and grooms. The Internet is the greatest source of inspiration for novelty wedding cakes.

2012 couples have more options in wedding cakes than ever before. The truth is however that the wider the range of styles is the more difficult the final decision is. Many brides and grooms are stressed by the fact that the palette of choices is so lavish and so generous. They can’t seem to make the final choice, giving the fact that all cake styles they find and see out there are unique and eye-catchy. But you should not base your cake only on a glorious appearance. The exterior aspect prevails, but the taste plays an essential role. What would be the purpose of a fashionable wedding cake that has no taste?
Your guests will remember your cake by its flavor, we guarantee you that. They will have the pictures of the cake to remember its shape, color and design, but the taste will decide on how great your cake actually was. A bad taste will always remain in your guests’ head as a bad thing of your wedding. So, when making the cake selection for your wedding, take into consideration these aspects: size, design and flavor. Based on your number of guests you can calculate the size of the cake and also choose a shape to match. We are very excited to discuss about the trendy styles that are promoted nowadays among modern brides and grooms.
We don’t even know where to start or what to talk about first! They are all incredibly beautiful and outstanding. One of our favorite trends is the one based on mini and individual wedding cakes. Single-tier confections based on different flavors, colors, shapes and decorations are also very hot and trendy. They are often picked by young brides and grooms who want a fun and cute unconventional wedding reception party. Those who are planning a simple, intimate and relatively smaller wedding can also consider this style. Instead of bringing a stacked cake, you can display several single tier confections on the dessert table, for a more appealing effect. Guests love diversity and the possibility of choosing between more cute designs.
Two-tier cakes are also among our favorites because they are small, delicious and creatively elegant. Those of you who have a bigger reception should consider a three-tier stacked cake. This style is more adequate for a modern wedding than a traditional pillar cake or a five tier confection! It’s hip to display a small or smaller cakes in a wedding nowadays! As for the style, anything based on ombre shades, chevron patterns, ruffles, frills, beads, asymmetrical tiers, dots and edible flowers is in.

The unusual style is gaining more and more popularity in modern weddings. Our newlyweds seem very excited about the whimsical trend and the myriad of ways it can be incorporated in a wedding. However, there are still many brides and grooms out there who think that this style is not the most appropriate one for a wedding. Well, it may not be the most formal one, but it is for certain one of the most original! And we all know just how important the uniqueness factor is in a wedding these days!
Those who are not familiar with the whimsical style should follow these amazing cakes. Nevertheless, these confections may not be the most relevant examples of whimsical weddings cakes.

Those are indeed purely whimsy and unusual.
These confections are whimsical but in a more delicate and refined way. These cakes are soft, feminine and highly fashionable. In terms of wedding cakes, “whimsical” can refer to the design and aspect of the cake in principal. The flavor and the interior of the cake can also be interpreted as whimsy when the taste is really spicy, exotic or eccentric and diversified.
You can mix two contrasting flavors and create an odd taste especially for the amazement of your guests. But in general, the appearance of the cake is the element that you can insist on to obtain the best results in this sense.

You can combine the round, oval, hexagonal, square, heart and other shapes in between and create unique mixes. You can also play with diverse colors and create an exotic look.

We didn’t expect to see it in elegant indoors weddings, but we did remarked it in both casual and formal celebrations.

Use it for a white and red theme and update its traditional aspect. The zig-zag stripes can make any popular colors look inedited and unique.

But you can add many other hues and make your wedding theme look more sophisticated and diversified. If you want to go more modern with your wedding yet propose a little bit of the retro vibe, use chevron as your wedding theme. Don’t be afraid to play with colors, but make sure that your mix is soft to the eyes and adequate for your wedding formality and venue.
Very popular and beloved by our modern couples, Chevron is still full of unique resources. As we said above, the secret is in the colors you’re using. One can never consume all options because there are numberless ways of combing and mixing different colors. This pattern can be inserted in anything, starting with the invitations and stationery and ending with the cake and the guest favors.
