A Wedding Cake Spectacular: 14 Contemporary Cake Ideas

By Claire

Good morn­ing! Who likes cake? And have you cho­sen your wed­ding cake yet? I’ve picked some of my favorite wed­ding cakes from all the real wed­dings on Eng­lish Wed­ding blog over the last few months, and thought it would be a great way to get a lit­tle wed­ding cake gallery going!

Click on the images to see the full wed­ding and please — if you’re the wed­ding cake designer and would like a credit, get in touch. (All of these pic­tures are taken from my real wed­dings, sub­mit­ted by wed­ding photographers)

My top 14 con­tem­po­rary wed­ding cake ideas

Tiered wed­ding cake ideas

These tiered wed­ding cakes are a con­tem­po­rary take on the clas­sic shape (and I’m a poet and I don’t even know it

Cheese wed­ding cakes

Not in the least bit cheesy (ged­dit?!) cheese wed­ding cakes always look artis­tic, cre­ative… lit­tle sculp­tures almost! The tex­tured rinds and wrap­pers with bright flow­ers get me every time. Look at these beauties!

Wed­ding cup­cake ideas

Wed­ding cup­cakes can look stun­ning: there’s an art to cre­at­ing each indi­vid­ual dinky cake, and also to arrang­ing them beau­ti­fully! Here are a few of my favorite wed­ding cup­cake ideas:

I can see why choos­ing a wed­ding cake is such a big deci­sion! I love all of these… I’d be torn, I think, between the pure white cup­cakes, the cheese wed­ding cakes and of course that fab­u­lous Choc­cy­woc­cy­doo­dah tiered wed­ding cake.

Which is your favourite? Are you a wed­ding cake designer? You can con­tinue the blog post by adding your own wed­ding cake images using the com­ments form below. Just upload a pic­ture, 600 pix­els wide please (big­ger pics can break my blog a lit­tle bit!) to show­case your wares!
