You want your wedding cake to tie in nicely with your wedding theme. It is best to keep your wedding theme in mind during your cake consultation. Your wedding cake is another avenue to make your wedding theme cohesive, and depending on your theme, there are several paths you can take when designing your cake. Your cake can be elaborate or simple, it is completely up to you! So what should you keep in mind when designing a cake for a contemporary themed wedding?
For a contemporary theme, the design possibilities are endless. Contemporary cakes usually have clean lines, so it may be best to ask for a fondant cake. Fondant gives cakes the appearance of being completely smooth with no imperfections-which is a very modern look. Buttercream is more forgiving, and will not look as clean. Most contemporary cakes are fairly minimalistic,with subtle design touches--but you can also take a more bold look if you would like to. With contemporary cakes, your color scheme can be brought in with subtle touches; like flowers or small ribbons at the bottom of each tier--or the base of the fondant can be colored to match your theme. You have many options with contemporary cakes and your cake designer can help narrow your options to match your theme.
We offer a wide range of design options, one of which being contemporary cakes. If you are interested in discussing your design ideas, contact us today!
