When you think about modern wedding cakes, you think about style, glamour, different views and more. Well, it is true, because modern days push us to be radical, to be different and to step out of normal boundaries. The wedding cake deserves every bit of your attention and you should put time and effort into choosing the right one. It might be difficult with so many options, but you can start by picking up the colors, the flavors and then the style. Perhaps some of the examples below will help you pick out the ideal modern wedding cake.
Wedding cakes are traditionally round or square, but modern views seem to take things to another level. Instead, tiers can be hexagonal and rectangular and they can be inspired by architecture. On the tiers, you can apply ornaments influenced by dense work of the Arab buildings with exotic parapets done out of gum paste. Perhaps a bit of the classics can be kept and butter-cream looks and tastes magnificent. Each tier of the cake can be covered in meringue butter-cream and create flourish designs to give the cake a modern style. The colors are of your choice, as you can decorate the cake with the main colors used at the wedding.
Chocolate will always be one of the best things ever. How about a chocolate covered wedding cake? But you should not think of a simple design, but a chocolate petal cake and under the flurry petals can be three or four tiers of mocha spice cake with sour cream. The sugar pansies that seem to blossom among the chocolate petals add a lovely touch and ideal for a spring wedding. But this cake is not suitable for an outdoor wedding, as it is too delicate. Mini wedding cakes are an alternative to the tiered cake. Use simple designs, and top the cake with simple blossoms made out of butter-cream to make a standing impression. The mini cakes can have just three inches high and they can be served at each place, so everyone gets a taste of heaven.
If you really want a spectacular appearance, an ice cream sorbet cake will surely blow everyone away. A pyramid of fruits can be covered with edible nougatine and each fruit can be molded from sorbet. It surely takes time and effort to design the cake, but be sure the effect is guaranteed. Finally, ruffled wedding cakes are also very suitable for modern days.
