Modern wedding cake trends

Modern wedding cake trends

Modern couples are bold and not afraid to take risks, even with their weddings. The result? Unique elements that personalise their big day into memorable experiences, from the choice of shoe all the way to their wedding cakes.

Wedding cakes have been mainstays for decades, but their styles have changed so much. The simple, two-layer buttercream sweet treat doesn’t cut it any more. Modern times have seen multiple new wedding cake trends exist concurrently, each one appealing to specific tastes. From geometric designs to abstract art, wedding cakes are taking on a life of their own.

Geometric designs:

Characterised by geometric designs and bold symmetry, art deco has been given new life in this decade. Rather than the over-the-top, shiny look of yesteryear, this trend is much more simple to allow the geometry to stand out. Stick to no more than three key colours to maintain the sleek look.

Square cakes:

Round cakes are so last decade. Square cakes have been trending for the last year, offering up an alternative shape and design that is wonderfully modern. Add florals to soften the look.

Modern florals:

Florals and weddings go hand-in-hand. However, cake artists have taken this design to new heights, creating stunningly delicate sugarflowers placed artfully. The result is a stunningly modern yet soft cake.

Texture:

Adding dimension is a simple way to elevate a cake. Take inspiration from these cakes that feature delicate ruffles and draping to add interest and sleek flair. This style is perfect for the understated couple who still want a showstoppingly unique cake.

Abstract designs:

Abstract design is a hallmark trend of modernity. With simple yet impactful brushstrokes, a blank canvas can be transformed into a masterpiece. Keep the design to a specific spot or have it appear small with lots of white space to maintain a sleek, modern look.

You guys, getting this picture (and several others!!!) in of this cake, literally made me cry! And I'm only sliiiightly embarrassed by that! I poured myself into this cake. I worked over 40 hours on the flowers alone. The sketch took me twice as long as my sketches normally do. I spent multiple hours dying my flower paste to be the exact shades I wanted, and threw out many batches that weren't just the right shade. I color dusted and layered forever just to achieve this vision I had in my head. I stayed up an entire night, no sleep, to finish perfecting this cake. This cake has now wiggled its way into my heart for my absolute fav that I have ever made. I am PROUD of this cake, and that is NOT easy for me to say. I always see the flaws that you all so graciously bypass. But this cake, I'm just going to enjoy it and not see the flaws. I'm going to be openly proud of this one and not feel guilty about it. I'm not going to give in to the weird artistic self doubt voice that all artisans know too well. I'm going to love this one flawlessly. And I owe ALL of that to the absolutely amazing, one of a kind, phenomenal photographer that is @dselbak. She is a genius behind her lens and I hope you ALL go show her some love, follow her journey, and remember her name for your wedding and family photography needs. She is so beyond wonderful and I owe her so much gratitude for capturing this labor of love exactly as it was intended to be captured. *Swoon* More pictures to come!!. . . #Weddingcake #Sugarflowers #davidaustinroses #sugarrose #gumpaste #sugarpaste #flowerpaste #satinicegumpaste #sugarwork #sugarartist #weddingcakeartist #cake #fondant #paintedcake #watercolorcake #terracotta #terracottawedding #terracottacake #orangeflowers #orangewedding #marthaweddings #foodnetwork #sugarrush #weddingcake2020 #bride #groom #wedding2020 #sewellsweets
