A single-tier cake may be all you need to add a touch of sweetness to your special day. If you’re not interested in indulging in double or triple layers when it comes to your wedding cake, you may find a single-tier is more than enough and can be just as elaborate and decadent as its multi-layered counterparts.

Roses and figs

We find it difficult to resist a ganache and fig cake adorned with fresh white roses and supple fig halves? An elegant cake indeed!

Forest berries

A sweet naked cake topped with fresh blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and plums, is a rustic look which will suit any climate, whether it be a balmy outdoor wedding or a frosty winter celebration.

Clean canvas

Thickly spread buttercream frosting topped with pastel peach coloured blooms can provide a fresh and simple approach to a wedding cake. It’s quite a rustic look too and will work well with any colour scheme.

Opulent orchids

White Phalaenopsis orchids placed atop a pink single-tier cake can create dimension and provide elegant beauty to an unpretentious foundation. The look is finished with a subtle sweep of gold lace.

Pearl couture

Non-traditional shapes such as cubes can throw a twist into the cake mix, (pardon the pun), and interesting embellishments such as this cake beaded with pearls of frosting can enhance the theme of innovation and unique design.
