Why you should choose a contemporary wedding cake design

As a wedding cake designer who loves to try new techniques and explore new textures and mediums, I adore making contemporary wedding cakes. My contemporary style often features very tall designs that leave a real impact on your wedding guests! Here are the 5 reasons why I think you should consider a contemporary cake design for your wedding:

1. Contemporary cake designs by their very nature are individual and unique rather than following a current trend, meaning you are getting a totally bespoke, one of a kind cake design.

2. Due to their unique look, a modern design adds a real wow-factor to your special day and provides a talking point for your guests as well as a great photo opportunity!

3. If you’re opting for a contemporary styled wedding, a modern cake design can really tie in and compliment this. Equally. if you’re having a more elegant/classic wedding, a contemporary design can really stand out. For example, this bespoke 5 tier cake from a recent styled shoot at Somerley House provided a real wow factor against the backdrop of a beautifully elegant tablescape.

4. Contemporary designs are often structural / textured in their style so your cake designer can take inspiration from your venue, fabrics, stationery to name but a few.

5. Anything goes! Modern designs allow cake designers to try new things and play around with textures and colours like this bold, offset square design from a celestial themed shoot at Froyle Park Country Estate.
