20 Single Tier Wedding Cakes with Wow
After focusing over the last couple of weeks on some stylish alternatives to the traditional wedding cake, I wanted to show with today’s post that your wedding cake can be kept simple and still make a statement and that you don’t have to spend a fortune to create a wedding cake with wow. With these minimalist single tier wedding cakes, sweet in every sense of the word, that I can’t help but adore……
Your wedding cake doesn’t have to be ten tiers tall to be absolutely fabulous! A single-tier confection, a trend that we’ve glimpsed for a couple of seasons now and one that seems to be only gaining in popularity, is the perfect way to save without sacrificing style. But they’re not just for the budget conscious brides! If you’re hosting an intimate affair a single tier wedding cake will serve you well. Or if you’re not a fan of the traditional and are looking for an alternative to the towering white confection, then these smaller delights might be for you. And of course if you simply want to offer your guests a choice, then imagine a table of these little beauties!
Whatever your reason, a single tier can pack a real style statement when decorated and displayed the right way. You see, opting for just one tier means you can go all out on decorations without it breaking the bank! Whether you love the look of fresh and sugar flowers, fondant designs, naked cakes or hand-painted accents, your smaller cake can have all of the beauty of its tiered counterparts. Just take a look at these – 20 of the most wow single tier wedding cakes I could find…
