Weddings cakes today are real works of art. Our brides and grooms are assaulted by a wide range of styles to choose and get inspired from. If you are completely clueless about the style you should select, browse online for more inspiration. You will be surprised to see how many proposals our designers have for you. It depends on the type of wedding you’re planning. It can be a small, big, classic, modern, white or colorful wedding cake. You can pick the most adequate cake for your reception based on size, color, design, theme, flavor or shape.
These are the principal criteria of choice when it comes to contemporary wedding cakes. Let’s talk some more about shape. Weddings cakes are in general round. This shape is the most adequate because it exudes more romance and finesse. But the square shape is even more elegant, but in a different way. Square tiers look more adequate for formal nuptials. Round cakes on the other hand are far more versatile and therefore easier to incorporate in different types of wedding formalities and themes. If you like both these shapes and you don’t know which one to choose, think of a clever combination.
Many cake designers of today have round & square shaped cakes in their collections to choose from. The possibility of mixing different tiers for the same cake is amazing! It depends on the way you want your cake to look like: sophisticated of simple, glamorous or tasty, vintage or fashion-forward, etc. The round and square shapes are not the easiest to combine, but they can form a nice pair when used with style and elegance. Alternate these two shapes to obtain a more extravagant confection for a glam and luxury wedding. Mixed tier cakes are always original and interesting to watch. You can be sure that your guests will like the design you picked for your cake and appreciate your unique taste.
You can decorate the cake with flowers – edible, real or artificial, with ribbons and bows – for a gift-like look, with pearls, rhinestones and other sparkling details – for a more glamorous look. You can use anything you want to adorn your cake in a distinctive way. The most common type of decorating adopted by our designers is the gift-wrapped style. You can use fabric or edible ribbons to create this stunning effect. Use pink or blue colored ribbons to add more romance and femininity to the cake. Simple round and square cakes based on a clean and smooth surface are the trendiest ones. You can use a chevron pattern or ombre theme if you wish to incorporate more color in the cake. Or, you can play a dot or plaid pattern for a more fun look.
Couples who want a unique wedding cake can choose a bicolor theme. Modern wedding cakes are no longer white, plain and tall. They look the contrary: colorful, textured and smaller. Current trends show us more and more unique models and themes to choose from. That’s why it can be extremely difficult for a couple to make their final decision based on the existing style. It’s always clever to narrow down the palette of options by considering your own favorite color, flavor and shape.
Take into consideration the formality, season and locale of the wedding when making this choice as well. This will surely help you make a wiser decision in this regard. Modern themes are incredibly versatile and easy to implement throughout the event. Black and blue is one of the most whimsical themes you can select for your wedding. Start with the invitations and end up with the guest favors. This theme is easy to work with because it can be found in a lot of materials and fabrics you can use for your wedding. The bride herself can choose a blue accent for her dress or a black detail, depending on the effect she wants to create. But it’s always safer to choose the color theme of the wedding for the bridesmaids and wedding cake.
These are the two most important “centerpieces” of a wedding that can reflect properly a unique color mix or theme. Black and blue is ideal for ocean inspired weddings, but not only. It can suit a contemporary urban celebration – whimsical or glamorous. This color combo is elegant and it lends a sophisticated feel to any wedding ceremony and reception. It can add a mystical touch to the décor and make the entire event look more creative. When it comes to wedding cakes, black & blue is favored especially by men. This color mix is extremely bold, imposing and masculine, to say so. A black and blue wedding cake can make a surprising statement at the reception and add an unexpected touch to the party.
This tonality is anything but traditional. Now, it depends on the exact shade of blue you’re choosing. Dark blues work well for modern sophisticated celebrations. A bicolor theme can be well reflected in a cake through a unique pattern. Try a chevron pattern if you’re having a beach wedding, or a polka dot design for a cuter look. Stripes, plaids and small floral accents can also fit this theme. Opt for a damask cake in black and blue for a more dramatic formal look. A simple black cake with blue ribbons can make a spectacular choice. The colors can be used vice versa. Ask the baker to show you different patterns to make sure you choose the right one.
Deciding on the best theme for your wedding can cost you a lot of time and stress. Know that you can do this easier, by simply following your own vision. You must have an idea of how you want your wedding day to be. If you are completely clueless, get inspired from the unique wedding projects proposed by our designers. We have many tips and tricks for you on our website. This article is for those who are interested in planning a classic wedding with a fancy elegant flair.
We chose the black and white theme for our discussion. We’ve decided to talk more about the black and white theme in a wedding cake and how it can be enhanced by a couple. Black and white themed nuptials are classic beauties. These types of events are very fun and retro, due to this original color mix. This theme is elegant, high class and dramatic. Although static, black and white combos are ideal for formal weddings. Many people recognize this color mix as a vintage one. It was very popular during the Art Deco era and now it seems that it has been brought back to the attention of the public once again.
There are hundreds of ideas on how to use this theme in a wedding and most of all, how to incorporate it in a wedding cake. The idea of planning a simple white cake may seem too plain and boring for those who want a formal wedding but with a dramatic touch. In this context, adding a burst of black color to the white tiers can highlight the beauty of the theme and captivate the attention of your guests in a nice way. It doesn’t have to be a simple black and white confection. You can add a third splash of color, this time something brighter, like red, green or pink. These flashy nuances will surely add more sophistication and uniqueness to the entire confection. Be creative and make your black and white cake stand out.
You can use a special topper based on a shimmering silver monogram or on a colorful bouquet of flowers trailing down the tiers. White & black wedding cakes are chic and eye-catchy no matter what you use. It can be a chevron pattern in black and white, or an ombre theme based on different shades of black, gray and ivory. Those who want a richer look can choose black polka dots on a white canvas, or vice versa. Chess patterns are also recommended for a black and white themed cake. You can use stripes or plaids to give more life to your confection. We also enjoy damask patterned cakes and their timeless elegance.
Modern brides and grooms are no longer traditionalists. They still enjoy though many of the beautiful themes that were poplar in the past. This is why we get to see so many classic and vintage themes and currents implemented and used today for different wedding projects. The contemporary couple has the amazing opportunity to choose from a wider palette of styles, including the classic, traditional and old-fashion style. Those who want to go even further in time can choose the ancient style for their wedding.
There are many specific themes out there that can help you guys organize an authentic party for you and your guests. Let’s take the classic style for instance. And one of the most popular is the black & white theme. This color mix is one of the most sought after and appreciated among traditionalist couples. This mix is supposed to show of the bride and groom’s preference in style and taste in fashion. Black & white weddings are beautiful reflections of the elegance of the newlyweds. Nevertheless, not everybody falls for this style. Many find this theme too monotone and standard. If you think this too, add a touch of color to the palette and make the black and white nuances look more inviting and eye-catchy.
Black and white themes can be boring indeed, but not when used with style and class. We find this combo pretty distinctive from what we get to see in everyday weddings! This color palette is neutral and simple, but this is precisely the thing that makes it look so unique and eye-catchy. Within the myriad of color palettes incorporated in modern weddings, we think that a black and white theme can make all the difference. You can play with black and white tones for a beautiful wedding cake. We think that black & white wedding cakes are extremely elegant and appealing. They are fit for a formal black tie affair but also for informal weddings planned outside the doors. It doesn’t have to be something very intricate and pompous.
Anyone can buy a plain white cake from a local bakery and decorate it with black ribbons. This procedure is affordable and satisfactory for those who are talented in this field. Adorn your white cake with smooth black fondant, shaped in different motifs or figures. Add a few red flowers to create a more eye-catchy look for your cake. There are many themes that can be done in black and white for those who want something more artistic, like chess, zebra or chevron patterns. You can select black and white damask for a fancier look or a floral print for a more romantic effect. You can go abstract or whimsical, depending on the wedding formality.
There are so many details to deal with when planning a wedding, so it’s kind of understandable why the couple is so stressed out and overwhelmed with the myriad of the decisions they must make. Planning a wedding reception may seem easy at first, but when you enter the depth of the process, you discover that there are a lot of aspects you never even thought of! Let’s take for instance the wedding cake table. Nowadays, the display for the wedding cake table can be even more important or imposing than the cake itself.
This is a good strategy for those who don’t have a very big or elaborated cake to show at their wedding! You can invest more in the décor of the table and create a cute and unique display so that the cake can look more impressive. The decorations used for the cake table must enhance the theme of the cake and reflect the specific of the wedding. Let’s not forget that the wedding cake is the showpiece of the entire wedding. The couple gets the chance to present themselves with an artistic and sophisticated confection that will always remain with the guests in their memories and pictures. It seems only natural for a beautiful cake to have a beautiful presentation and a special display.
You can use a separate table for the cake or use the dessert table to place the confection. Now, it also depends on how big your cake is and what design it features. If it’s a traditional cake based on column pillars, perhaps you could use a separate table without any additional desserts on it. On the other hand, if you’re displaying individual cakes or multiple single-tier confections, you can use the same table you arranged for the candy buffet. The other treats you serve at the wedding can make up for a unique décor for the cake. It would be nice to bring in a wide variety of colored sweets and cookies to complement the cake and the wedding color scheme.
Keep in mind that the decoration used for the cake table must be simple and understated, so that the cake can stand out more. The tablecloth is the first thing to plan in this sense. You can cover the cake table with a white or black cloth and use a colored runner or colored ribbons around the edges of the table. Go for a lace, crocheted or patterned tablecloth to obtain a chicer effect. Florals, polka dots, plaids, stripes and chevron patterns are unique ideas. Scatter flowers, confetti, fake snowflakes and glitter around the table for a more romantic look. Instead of small objects, use one big object to emphasize the cake, as a chocolate or champagne fountain!
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. These are just a few of the most popular modern designs used for contemporary wedding cakes. Buttercream confections are deliciously trendy too!

It is perhaps the flirtiest one we’ve experienced so far in a wedding.
Polka dots are cute and pretty and they can make wonderful selections for both vintage and modern weddings. We think that this pattern is great for celebrating an old-fashion wedding. You can go classic and choose a black and white dotted pattern, or you can go retro and choose red and green or any other bold color scheme for the dots! We like the way this pattern looks like when used on a wedding cake. It’s more visible this way and easier to admire by the guests. You should know that polka dots were very trendy during the ‘50s. Now it seems that they’re making a great comeback and we are very happy to see that our newlyweds respond so quickly to this trend.
The most exciting thing about this pattern is that you are free to use absolutely any color you want! You need two shades: one for the background and one for the dots. The most popular ones are those based on white + a different color. But we also like the exotic mixes based on pink and black or chocolate brown, red and green, black and aqua, navy and orange, pink and purple, etc. The possibilities of combining two colors are infinite! Polka dost are playful and youthful. They are also more romantic and amusing compared to the stripes of chevron patterns or the squares of the plaid patterns. You can even go for a white on white polka dot cake by using bold edible accents for the tiers. You can use a simple pattern or combine it with a romantic floral print!
The choice of cake for a wedding is one of the most overwhelming. This is one of the most exciting parts of a wedding.

You guys should decide upon the most original, affordable and adequate one for your wedding. The cake should be the real expression of the wedding style. But it can always feature a different theme. However, if the wedding has a special motif that can be followed throughout the décor, it would be wise to use it in the wedding cake too. Let’s take for instance the black and white theme.
This color combo is very pretentious. You can’t order a black & white wedding cake without having a black and white wedding setting to receive it. It wouldn’t look nice to bring a cake like this in a differently colored wedding. So, if you love this style and you wish to adopt it for your cake, make sure that you utilize the same style for the reception party. You should not feel pressured to wear a black and white wedding dress if you don’t like this style.

You can choose black and white accents for all important wedding items, starting from the invites and the bridesmaid dresses and ending up with the guest favors. There are many unique patterns you can choose from for a black & white theme. One of the trendiest is the chevron pattern.
We think this style is great for wedding cakes because it is fresh, elegant and eye-catchy. To make it even more sophisticated, we suggest you add a third color to it. Try a yellow, red or pink accent! Anything can look nice against a black and white chevron pattern. For something more whimsy, choose a chess cake, or a zebra print. You can perhaps consider an abstract design in black and white for a more original effect. Choose black and white flowers or only black blooms against white tiers for a more romantic appeal. We also like the cakes inspired by newspaper.
