Modern-day weddings have come a long way from the traditional celebrations of the early 21st century, and even from events that took place in the past few decades. Couples are doing their best to make sure every aspect of their big day is true to their personalities – regardless of whether or not they stick to tradition. Besides the wedding décor, one of the biggest components of the wedding day that can be updated is personalizing the confection and going beyond a classic wedding cake design!
Though many brides and grooms choose to style their confections with the traditional decorations of the past – think all-white tiers with elegant piping – other couples select a non-traditional wedding cakes featuring acreative wedding cake design that complements their wedding theme or their personality as a couple. Artistic pairs may choose to include watercolor designs atop fondant or paint brush strokes embellishing the top of a traditional tiered cake, while brides- and grooms-to-be with a flair for the dramatic might select untraditional wedding cakes decorated with thousands of sugar flowers in a range of shades or decorate their wedding cake with fresh flowers that offer a fragrant dessert.
