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.
From smooth white cakes with a single pastel bloom to a semi-naked stunner piled high with white roses, here are eight single-tier wedding cakes that prove good (and tasty) things really do come in small packages.
