Modern Wedding Cakes of the 21st Century

Modern wedding cakes can be more than just traditional wedding fare, they can be a manifesto of who you are or how you see the world. These modern cake designs can be a works of art in miniature or grandiose constructions of cake and icing.

Always a major centerpiece at any wedding, wedding cakes are something your guests look forward to in anticipation of something grand or different. Often a reflection of the overall wedding theme and colour, the wedding cake can also be an expression of artistic flair from the bride and groom. All one has to do is tell the cake designer if your tastes run to the extraordinary or spectacular.

Modern or Contemporary wedding cakes can be inspired by just about anything, from movies, art, history or comedy etc. All the wedding cake decorations are edible, from the handmade sugar flowers to unusual gum paste creations.
