Proof you don’t need towering tiers to make a statement

Estas tartas de boda de una sola capa son obras de arte legítimas

If you’re looking for a unique alternative to the traditional multi-tiered wedding cake, consider serving several smaller, one-tier cakes. Not only can you offer guests more cake and filling flavors (yum), but opting for single tiers will also very likely save you money.

If you’re worried that smaller cakes won’t make as much of an impact as a larger, multi-tiered confection, not to worry—these examples below are proof that one-tier desserts can be just as stunning and eye catching. In fact, we’d argue these cakes work as standalone pieces of art.

A few tips if you’d like to go the single-tier route: Collect cake stands in different heights to create visual interest on your dessert table. Another idea would be to display pretty cake stands in the same color to help unify the assorted cakes. Alternatively, you could ask your baker to create several near-identical cakes (with different flavors inside), then display them on identical stands for a polished, elegant look. Finish things off by decorating the tiers with fresh flowers or adding greenery garlands to the dessert table.

Dubbed the ‘Cherry Bomb Cake’ by its Colombian creator, Julián Ángel, ‘this cake seems both romantic and rude at the same time,’ he says. Delicious layers of white chocolate cake meld with red berries and white chocolate buttercream.
