Modern Wedding Cake Colors
Do you remember birthday cakes made for children? Yes, it seems strange probably. But in modern wedding cakes, sometimes you need to imitate them, particularly for the colors.
Such bright colors such as bold pink, red, blue, green, yellow and many more are considered to be used in making them. Although of course, you can also use other soft and pastel colors.
It is good if you “bravely” use brightly red as the fondant of your cakes – probably, you want to make a theme related to rose or even blood. Then, to sweeten your wedding cakes, you can also put other bright colors as the accents.
Another tip for the basic color of your cakes is by using more than one color for the fondant. You can make alternately stripes or plaid fondant. If you think it is rather difficult to arrange, another alternative is by painting the already–served fondant with accents such as flowers or lace.
To be more tasteful, it will be better if each color used for the cake is having different flavor, such as strawberry for the red, chocolate for the brown, mango for green and yellow, and so on.
In vintage or classic wedding cakes, mostly you will find that the cakes are having square or round shapes. These two shapes are still good to be used for modern cakes, but if you want, you should try other shapes, such as heart, oval, or probably animals’ head.
Fortunately, there are now many shops which provide baking pans with many shapes. The stacks of the tiers are also really in varies. If you probably usually see that the stacks are arranged from the biggest on the bottom, and then getting smaller and smaller until the top.
Therefore, you can try other models. An example is by alternately arranging just two sizes of tiers, the bigger and the smaller. Or probably you want to make the wedding cakes which are stacking from the smallest on the bottom and then getting bigger until the top. It is really possible. All you need is by seeing the balance.
Talking about the accents, again, it is still possible for you to adapt the classic or vintage wedding cakes by using lace, flowers, and figurine; although in modern wedding cakes you will find much innovation.
You will possibly use any theme for your modern wedding cakes. A zoo, a jungle, a set of cartoon characters, all of them is very beautiful and unique for the toppers.
