Gone are the days of plain-vanilla cakes with butter cream frosting and red roses. While there is nothing wrong with a simple, more old fashioned cake, the trends are getting a bit more zany with many new flavors, styles, and choices in wedding cakes.

If you are a modern bride and having a modern wedding, you may want to consider some of the new trends that are becoming popular in wedding cakes. Let tradition go to the winds and pick a cake that suits you and your groom, and the mood of your special day.

New Trend

One new trend that is happening for wedding cakes is leaving the traditional cake altogether and choosing cupcakes instead. This allows you to have different kinds of cake and different kinds of frosting and is much less messy than cutting the traditional cake.

Many brides have also found that cupcakes were much more budget friendly as well. If you still have a bit of kid left in you and you are having a casual wedding, you may want to consider serving cupcakes at your wedding.

Instead of the sweet and fattening icings, many brides are now turning to wedding cakes that have toppings that are much healthier. Brides are beginning to favor cakes that are topped in various fruits, depending on the season and the style of the wedding.

A beach wedding may lead to a cake topped with tropical fruits, or a spring wedding may lend itself to a cake topped with luscious strawberries. Not only is fruit much healthier, but it is great tasting and a decoration all its own on your cake.

Cheesecake with Toppings

Another new trend that is quickly picking up speed is having cheesecake instead of traditional wedding cakes. While this choice can get a bit expensive, this is an elegant cake to serve at your wedding. Cheesecake is great to serve at those evening weddings that are classy and elegant.

If you are having a wedding that requires black tie, but you are not wanting to settle for a regular wedding cake, you may want to consider having cheesecake. There are many flavors and toppings that you can choose, as well, when you decide on cheesecake, so be original.

If you want to stick with a more traditional wedding cake but you want it to look trendy and chic, you may want to consider having a less traditional shape. Wedding cakes can be made in

different shapes including hearts, shaped like suitcases, stacked shapes, or even shaped to look like presents. Having a different shape can give your wedding cake a unique look and help to coordinate your cake with the theme of your wedding.

Remember that you want your wedding cake to be unique as you are and you want it to stand out. There is no need to stick with tradition when it comes to wedding cakes. Throw tradition to the wind and pick a cake that will make you happy and have guests raving for months.
