Contemporary Wedding Cake

Sleek and modern themes, like the on-trend industrial style, are great for couples seeking a twist on tradition. You can add your own spin to this theme in so many ways, but one common element is sharp, clean lines. So, look for geometric fondant and unusual icing patterns, like marble or metal.
