Eight Single-Tier Wedding Cakes You’ll Want to Copy

Sometimes, even when it comes to weddings, less really can be more. One example? The chic, single-tier wedding cakes that keep popping up on our radar. Whether brides and grooms are inviting fewer guests to their fetes or sizing down in the cake department is simply becoming en vogue, who’s to say for certain. But one thing’s for sure—the single-tier trend is one we hope we’ll be seeing more of.
