This month's theme is "contemporary wedding cakes" so I've decided to spotlight some of the most popular and all-around favorite contemporary wedding cakes from Wedding And Party Network's bakeries. I've even included details so you'll know where to buy similar cakes and what to ask for when you're shopping for a wedding cake. Enjoy!
*circus style fanfare*
This wedding cake is a nice blend of traditional and modern. For a slight contemporary flair, blue flowers were used as a cake topper and icing decorations of the same color were used on each tier. For a very quick dash of modern attitude, liven up your wedding cake with color.
This is one wedding cake that's almost too unique to top! It is shaped like three stacked harvest baskets ready to be filled with summer fruit. The cool thing about is that it's a wedding cake! "Unique" and "contemporary" are almost interchangeable when it comes to wedding cakes so this one was sure to make the cut.
This is a very beautiful wedding cake with red flowers because red is an important color in Asian weddings. Red and white paired together are very powerful colors in many Asian cultures so this wedding cake is the perfect blend for a happy couple.
The three tiers at first appear to be just normal square tiers of buttercream icing and tasty cake but no! Black ribbons around the base of each tier provide a small accent for both the white color of the cake and the bright red flowers used to adorn each tier. A few Asian wedding decorations and the theme is set!
You can't get much more contemporary than this funky wedding cake! This is four tiers of fun as far as any modern bride is concerned. Hot pink and black polka dots come together brilliantly against a solid white cake. Pink flowers used as cake toppers and as decorations around the base of the cake help create an inviting display for this incredibly modern wedding cake.
Elaborate fanfare is much deserved for this wedding cake–or rather wedding cakes. Black and white colors were used to create a very modern color palette. As opposed to a cupcake wedding cake, this couple chose small mini cakes covered decorated to look like tiny gift boxes. Each small cake was covered in fondant for a very precise finish. The top tier is a small cake for the couple with a fun black and white cake topper to finish out the look of the cake. From top tier to bottom tier, this definitely deserves to be the #1 contemporary wedding cake of the month.
