We’re forever fans of frosting frills and flowers adorning classic wedding cake confections. But nothing gives us a sugar rush quite like sleek and refined modern wedding cakes. In the age of modern love, couples are also going contemporary with their big day desserts—we’re fawning over the resulting looks. Here’s the proof: The 21st century has never been so delicious.
Though towering tiers of white fondant will probably never go out of style (the decadent dessert has prevailed through the decades), but the new classics in confections have earned their place on the wedding dessert table and we couldn’t be more excited to take a bite out of this yummy trend.
Nowadays, more and more couples are hungry for a big day treat that’s reflective of their own unique style—cue contemporary cakes. These modern wedding cakes are crazy-cool and dripping with personality, thanks to geometric detailing, moody dark hues, metallic flourishes, and can’t-believe-our-eyes pared-down art-gallery-worthy designs.
For a taste of modern minimalism, check out the hexagonal marble masterpiece by Frost It Cakery—it’s your dessert dream come true. And if you’re craving a modern confection but don’t want to completely forgo the white wedding cake tradition, a clean design with modern, angular detailing (like the one here baked by Toni Patisserie), flawlessly balances the two styles. Trust us, neither you nor your plays-by-the-rules grandma will be able to resist a second slice.
