Modern wedding cake designs are not traditional anymore and cakes don’t need to have the round shape, stacked layers and with the classic toppers. You can use all sort of shapes and have various flavors for your wedding cake. If your wedding is modern, how about a square wedding cake? You can have several squares stacked to suit a large wedding. You can enhance the style with decorations and with various styles, so stick around and learn how.
One idea is to cover the cake in a solid fondant and add fondant polka dots in the colors of your wedding. For making the look even more modern, use different sizes on the polka dots. Match the color of the cake with the bridesmaids’ dresses and create a unique look. To create a whimsical look for your cake, use multi design. To succeed in this, have one layer of the cake frosted with polka dots, one layer of solid color, one with stripes and so on. You can stalk the layers on top of each other instead of being stacked.
How about a stripe decorated wedding cake in wide color combinations? Dark chocolate stripes look striking on a white frosting and pastel stripes are suitable for a summer wedding. If you prefer something different, use icing underneath the fondant for a more tasteful experience. Make a tower out of your wedding cake to resemble the big city. Stack layers of graduated sizes and cover the entire cake with fondant. You can even paint the cake, with baking paint of course, and make geometrical designs in the colors of your wedding.
As already mentioned, the cake can have any shape and any design. You can even shape the cake to look as a monument if you like, as a park, stadium, as a football and so on. But if you are not unconventional, how about covering the wedding cake with chocolate petals and sprinkle it with some sugar pansies for a more spring-like wedding. Simple designs can still be the winners and you can choose miniature wedding cakes instead of the big and traditional cake. Make tiny cakes and place butter cream blossoms on top of them. Serve them at each plate or place them as a desert buffet. Ruffles are very popular these days, so you can create ruffles between the layers of the cake for a modern look. Use calligraphy motifs on the cake and spell out your names.
