Simple, small, single-tier wedding cakes are the latest trend among brides

Gone are the complicated and time-consuming planning of weddings, which are stressful and take up a lot of time. With bridal couples, the minimalist and smaller weddings are now in trend – without a lot of frills and fuss, in simple locations and only in the smallest of circles. This guarantees relaxed planning and celebration that everyone can enjoy. Just like the rest, the wedding cake should of course be nice and simple. But that doesn’t mean boring. And we’ll bring you proof of this in a moment. Simple small wedding cakes designed on one level can look so beautiful and are in no way inferior to the opulent multi-level ones!

Simple, small wedding cakes designed on one level – varied despite their simplicity!

Design simple small wedding cakes on one level - beautiful minimalist ideas

Because a small wedding cake that is one-tiered still offers enough space to design and decorate, be it with simple creams and fondants or with real flowers, pearls and other decorations. In addition, the shape can vary, so that both classic round, rectangular, square or even hexagonal models can adorn the wedding buffet. Different heights are also suitable – from low versions for a smaller number of guests to tall, cylindrical models, everything is possible.

What is very convenient about this trend is that it suits different styles. The one-story and small model is easily adapted to your wedding style with the help of the decoration. Is the wedding going to be fashionable? Then opt for a single-colored cream and just a few flowers, types of fruit or other decorations. Have you decided on a vintage wedding? Then a lush flower arrangement can also be chosen, for example from succulents, peonies and greenery. Or how about just green and a cake figure?

The right cake stand

If the cake is extremely small, you can also use a taller cake stand to show off the cake. Another option would be to make several simple small wedding cakes on one level and display them on several cake stands. In this way, you get enough cakes for a larger number of guests without having to forego the simple, minimalist look of the one-tier cake.

If you value a bit of glamor despite the simplicity, you can opt for golden accents. In the picture above you can see a great example with an ombré effect, which not only looks good in combination with white paint, but can also be combined with any other color tones. For a dramatic look, you can opt for a black cake, for example, or how about a very dark shade of purple or red? The so-called drip cakes, in which the glaze runs down the sides like drops, are also very effective for a gold accent.

Pattern for the sides

Instead of a simple painted cream, pretty and subtle patterns can be worked into the side glaze, as in this example. This gives the cake that certain something and can also be adapted to the wedding style. Filigree, ornate patterns, for example, are perfect for vintage weddings, geometric patterns can in turn go with a modern wedding and lace for a boho wedding, for example.
