6 Ways to Have a Single Tier Wedding Cake

Single tier wedding cakes
Cake Buffet

Single tier wedding cakes have been taking a centre stage in the last year, and not only are they a really effective and different way to present your wedding cake; they are also a great way to save on your cake budget.

If you want to serve your wedding cake as dessert to your guests then speak to your cake maker about the options they have available, could you have a dessert table? Or display your wedding cake surrounded by cupcakes for your guests to enjoy? Alternatively you could have a really spectacular cake on display and a tray-bake of that flavour that you can serve to your guests.

Take a look at some stylish ideas for displaying your single tier wedding cake...

A Delicious Dessert Buffet

Let your cake be the centrepiece to a delicious dessert buffet, filled with cake pops, biscuits, and cupcakes. As well as being completely delicious, it’s also a great way for your guests to mingle as they go up to your dessert table and choose their sweet treat of choice.
