Modern Wedding Cake Ideas
Contemporary designs for the fashion-forward bride and groom that are almost to pretty to eat!
Go against tradition’s clean and crisp iced designs with a wedding cake that has a textured look. White-on-white or palette-friendly hues can make a wedding cake modern with a bold or understated effect. Lael Cakes, 144 Spencer Street at Myrtle Ave., (484) 358-9305.
With defined lines and a black and gold palette, the details on this Ron Ben-Israel wedding cake complements an Art Deco reception space, or decor theme, with a dash of glamour and glitz. Ron Ben-Israel Cakes, 247 West 38th Street at 8th Ave., (212) 625-3369.
DESSERT BUFFET CENTERPIECE
A wedding cake doesn’t have to be the only dessert offered at your wedding reception. Use the cake as a stylish (and delicious) centerpiece for a color-coordinated sweets buffet filled with bite-sized pastry favorites. Lael Cakes, 144 Spencer Street at Myrtle Ave., (484) 358-9305.
For the non-traditional bride and groom, a cake without a buttercream or fondant covering is quite the statement piece. Bakers can still add decorations such as colored frosted layering, fresh berries and edible florals to complement the wedding’s palette, theme or the newlyweds’ favorite flavors. Lael Cakes, 144 Spencer Street at Myrtle Ave., (484) 358-9305.
This six-tier wedding cake by Food Network star Ron Ben-Israel includes inspiration from two parts of the wedding: the location and couple’s monogram. And as a nod to tradition, is topped with white sugar flowers. Ron Ben-Israel Cakes, 247 West 38th Street at 8th Ave., (212) 625-3369.
