Wedding Cakes with Modern Flavor

Sugary sweet and stunning, wedding cakes carry a lot of weight these days – literally and figuratively. They’re not just dessert. They’re a critical photo opportunity, a necessary decor component, and a (hopefully!) delicious ending to the evening’s meal.

Lately, I’ve been loving the vibes of a modern-looking cake, clean and simple without a red, frosting rose in sight.

Below, I’m highlighting a few of my favorites from Detroit area bakers. Can you tell that I’ve got black-and-white decor on the mind? (Sorry; I’m in total wedding mode myself.) And of course, a lace and gun cake, because, well, Detroit.

Look below for links to the bakeries of each cake featured!
