Following in the footsteps of just about every other wedding accessory trend is the modern popularity of using color on the wedding cake. From pretty in pink wedding cakes to tiers of frosting and cake in blue hues, every color of the rainbow (and sometimes even rainbow patterns) can appear on the wedding cake.
So what makes colorful wedding cakes such a big deal? Traditional weddings taking place even a generation ago rarely strayed from creamy tones of icing and white wedding cake. While this style is still beautiful and widely used, modern wedding cakes portray a more dramatic reflection of the bride’s personality. This is accomplished by featuring one or more colors that complement the theme of the wedding.
Black and white wedding cakes are among those that are grabbing attention in today’s receptions. Black wedding cakes are rare while white wedding cakes seem too plain. However, combinations of black, white, red and silver are reflective of a very contemporary style. Colorful accents such as flowers and cake toppers make these cakes delicious hits.
Bold colors are also popular. Red, green, and blue wedding cakes also join the ranks of the most popular colors. Even peach, purple, and buttery yellow have made their way to the food table. Your wedding day is all about you, so why not let this trend extend to your wedding cake? No longer be scared of colorful cakes. Modern wedding cakes are all about style!
