How To Pick The Right Modern Wedding Cake

Mar 5, 2008
Modern wedding cakes can be individually created for the couple and become unique and elegant statements of simplicity or can be totally unconventional. They proclaim the couple's style and the color choices are unlimited. A cake designer can create anything you desire, from the most sophisticated black to a fun shocking pink. Often a great deal of experimentation may be involved in the process of creating the finished product to match exactly what the Bride and Groom wish for. This can be alot of fun if you have the extra budget to spend on extra cakes while you make up your mind.

Modern wedding cakes can also be made to a unique theme using the new sugar craft techniques. A range of options is now available, from which you can choose one that matches your wedding. Modern Wedding Cakes can also be designed according to the season; a snowflake for winter or icing seashells for a summer beach wedding, a delicate gazebo for a spring garden wedding or rich earthy tones for autumn. Pick a theme and a color based on the season and the theme of your wedding, or simply go with what appeals to the senses.

You may be concerned that the cake will not taste as good as it looks. Can a wedding cake be decorative, and still be a delicious dessert? Today, it can. Skilled designers specialize in cakes pleasing to both the palate and the eye. The outside beauty may be important for pictures and as a personal statement, but remember that your guests will carry away how the cake tasted. Modern cake flavors are quickly replacing the traditional white cake. Lemon, tropical, Italian cream, carrot and pink champagne are the new popular choices. Textures, of cakes today, range from soufflé-light sponge cakes to dense, heavy pound cake quality. Fillings may be cooked fruit, crèmes, custards and mousse.

The shape of the cake can add another dimension to its style. Scalloped edges, tiers fringed with blossoms and lacy icing, all look feminine and delicate, without being overly frilly and ostentatious. Alternating layers of hexagons and circles can give the cake a completely modern and contemporary look. Polka dots, charming and almost innocent, on a basic round cake can add an extra Avant-garde look to the round cake or on an asymmetrical stack of triangles. Experiment with shapes and stacking. Don't be limited to tiers and columns.

The sheer volume of available options can be overwhelming to someone looking for their ideal wedding cake. Many peoples first inclination may be to pick the popular look close to your theme to make your job easier. However, you should set your own style, decide your own trend. Each bride has an idea of what her perfect wedding cake would look like. Find yours. Combine the right look with the right flavor and filling, to make your own unique modern wedding cake. Remember, there is no pressure. Consider what you want, what you like. Close your eyes and imagine your perfect cake.
