Single Tiered Cakes for a Stunning Soiree


Are you thinking about a less traditional wedding cake? On a budget? Love understated elegance? Long gone are the days of six-tiered confections, large enough to feed the masses. Here are a few simple, single-tiered wedding cake inspirations to consider for your special day:

Fruity Fun!
If you’re looking to have a fun-filled artsy wedding, the cake should reflect that too! We suggest a simple one tired cake with plenty of frosting and fruit to top it off! Add some colorful berries to make the color pop. You may even choose colors according to the wedding palette. 

Keeping it Simple:

There are many unique alternatives to multi-tiered cakes, and whether your day is a small get together with close family and friends or a big wedding, one-tiered cakes are both versatile and stylish. Let your wedding reception be the talk of the town! Consider a single colored frosting with small embellishments that are understated but stunning.

Non Traditional Alternatives:

Organize your dessert table with a single-tiered cake flanked by a variety of desserts of your choice. Go crazy with colors and experiment with different types of sweets like truffles, cupcakes, and doughnuts. Or, feed everyone with a collection of small, mini cakes. Add or collect cake stands of different heights to feature on your dessert table. The wedding photography of the reception is guaranteed to be sublime!

Floral Add Ons:

Keep a small wedding cake looking simple and sweet with oversized flowers or natural florals. They are sure to look fresh and vibrant against a simple frosting. You can create more embellishment by adding details like patterned frosting and experimenting with pastel colors instead of the traditional white. 

Cake Décor:

Make a statement and add height to your non-traditional cake with a geometric cake topper, or try a romantic vintage version or a custom monogram to commemorate your special day. The options are endless!
