Square wedding cakes can really add a modern touch to your wedding. The drawback is that this can be a slightly more expensive design style depending on the bakery that you choose to go with. This is, of course, true whether you want elegant sweet sixteen cakes or modern wedding cakes. It’s just a matter of making sure that you save money on the details themselves.
One option for you to really save a lot of money on your square wedding cake is to go with very simple decorations. This means skipping a lot of the basic piping work that you usually see on cakes around the edges. You could still bring this onto the cake if you are willing to spend a little bit more money, but you need to use it in a more modern way. This means going with an all-over pattern or print or at least using it on one tier. You won’t see a lot of the traditional borders on these kind of cakes.
The edges, however, can still be finished. Often you can do this inexpensively with ribbon. It’s a way to add a little bit of color to the cake. As a mixed media piece this cake looks very sleek and it’s also quite inexpensive. You can also add some brightly-colored flowers to the cake to help brighten it up.
Another very dramatic element is going to be the placement of the tiers. This could mean that you have one round tier and then another square one that you add in to go for more of a whimsical kind of design–which allows you to add a personal touch to just a plain basic white wedding cake. In this case you can just stick with a simple white fondant without a lot of decoration because the focus of the cake is going to be on the angles. It’s a way to design modern square wedding cakes in ways that most people haven’t seen before, which is especially important if you’re getting married in the springtime when people are going to be going to a lot of weddings. Your cakes can still stand out while using a lot of the same traditional elements. You can then go with either a traditional or humorous wedding cake topper to give your cake a bit of flair.
