Wedding cakes are keeping evolving, just like any trend in weddings. Non traditional wedding cakes are defined by their artistry, they are bold and they dare to be different and have various shapes, decorations and fillings. They easily reflect the couple’s personality and you might not find them in any bakery shop around the corner, they are usually designed and custom ordered. So, if you are looking for non traditional wedding cakes, then you can definitely choose from some of the ideas below.
Traditional cakes are known to be round and tiered, well, contemporary cakes can have square shapes, hexagonal and they can be placed on separate cake stands. For example, a three tiered chocolate hexagonal wedding cake can be decorated with pink buttercream flowers. A four tiered wedding cake can easily be accented with black and silver brocade. As already mentioned, stacking the tiers on top of each other is not a rule to be followed anymore. A cake artist can set the tiers apart to form the feeling of imbalance. The tiers can have various heights and sizes, shapes and they can be placed side by side rather than vertically.
Wedding cakes can also have motifs and it seems that modern days embrace the earth motifs. These colors can be integrated in the cake, especially for an outdoor wedding, where green feels like home. Add architectural details on the cake using icing moldings. For weddings hosted at fancy hotels and ballrooms an opulent cake can be designed with elegant and sophisticated boarders’ details. Cakes can now have any shape that the couple desire and they can be integrated in the theme of the wedding. For example, if the couple loves sports, the cake can be made to look like a stadium, with the players on it, the ball and everything. There are many possibilities and it only depends on the couple’s preferences.
Not only the cake can be nontraditional, but the toppers and the ornaments as well. Cascading fondant ribbons can wrap up the cake beautifully, especially if it is a multi-tiered wedding cake. Use fresh flowers instead of the classic toppers, edible pearl decorations, fresh fruits, branches and even crystals for that glam and sparkle look. White doves can also add a very natural look, elegant and classy. You can choose from all sorts of toppers and designs; your imagination is the limit. So step out of the traditional boundaries and come up with a non conventional idea and theme.
