9 Amazing Single-Tier Wedding Cakes

These single-tier wedding cakes are (almost) too pretty to eat!

Bigger is definitely not always better – and these amazing wedding cakes are proof! A single-tiered wedding cake can make just as stunning an impact at your reception as a super tall creation, especially when you add a creative cake topper, like the sparkly glitter heart below, or a tower of bright fresh flowers. Did someone say yum?

When pulling off the simple single-tier wedding cake, we love the idea of creating a cake and dessert table. Get creative with the presentation – pretty cake stands in the same colour palette with different textures (like porcelain and milk glasses) would translate nicely for a vintage wedding. Or create a very streamlined and modern style using all matching cake stands in different heights. Finish off the table with a fun colourful backdrop or even a wedding banner that reads “Eat Cake And Be Married” or simply, “I Do.” Keep scrolling for some more single-layered cake-spiration!
