Fashion and trends are not only applied with everyday outfits, but also when it comes to weddings. Each year there are new trends set and brides can choose to be modern or to stick with the classic and traditional. A modern wedding cake goes beyond the limits and comes with new ideas, revolutionary decorations, shapes, tastes and more. Also, modern views on the wedding cake include bold lines and contrast, to catch everyone’s eyes. Modern wedding cakes with ribbon can be created using fondant, which is the most popular cake decoration material. You can make everything out of fondant, roll it into a thin shape and create a flawless cover over the cake or ribbons to cover up the layers and to make the cake look simply stunning.
The illusion of a satin ribbon winding around the tiered cake can be created for a modern style, very catchy for that matter. Imagine a three layer chocolate cherry wedding cake with smooth brown fondant and a thick pink fondant that resembles a ribbon, wrapped around each layer. You can simply put a white rose in the middle of the fondant bow to substitute the classic toppers. You can also include another shade of pink for the ribbon that can go from the bottom of the cake to the top. Modern wedding cakes don’t have to be round anymore; they can have any shape you can imagine, including hexagonal shapes, square and oval. Each hexagonal tier can be separated with a gray ribbon; in case you have a white wedding cake or gray is included in the color scheme of the wedding.
A multi-tiered wedding cake can have cascading fondant ribbons to create a whimsical look. As for cake toppers, couples can choose fresh flowers, edible decorations, white doves and many more examples. If you really want something special, you can go with the charlotte wedding cake, which has a filling of raspberry mousse, wild strawberries on soft almond biscuits. A signature, red, satin ribbon can wrap up each tier. You can engrave the names of the bride and groom on the ribbon, for a more suitable look. Charlotte is a great substitute for a wedding cake, because it is in the same time, light and rich.
In case you have a simple wedding cake, white or in a pale color, the ribbon wrapping up the tiers can be bold, to make the cake stand out.
