Cake ideas for small weddings

Wedding cake Q – After postponing our wedding due to the pandemic, we’ve decided to have a small celebration, and a big cake doesn’t seem right. What other options are there?

"There are many ways you can still have the cake of your dreams at a smaller wedding. Here are a few of my top tips: 

"Right on-trend for the coming wedding season are floating tiers. Achieved using a sidebar that can be decorated with foliage, flowers or crystal beads, it gives the illusion of a floating top tier. Creating a tall, elegant cake without extra portions.

"Alternatively, you could opt for the illusion of a clear tier using an acrylic dummy. This can be left empty or filled with flowers, crystals, baubles or decorated with a stencil feature to tie in with your theme or centrepieces.

"If you would prefer something more traditional, then opt for a dummy tier as your base, decorated as a real cake would be, and no one will ever know that it’s not real. You could cover the dummy base with flowers, and/or foliage to match your bouquet.

"Whether you’ve decided to opt for a singer tier cake or to make a statement by having a double-barrelled design, let the decorations do the talking. Use a mixture of textures and sugar flowers, and display it on a footed cake stand which will look simply stunning."
