Trend Alert: One-Tiered Wonders

We’re used to seeing wedding cakes in size “Tall”, in all their three- or four-tier glory. Here, we’ve compiled a series of single-tiered cakes, decorated just as exquisitely – only more petite, and more approachable! Although larger cakes gather attention right away, their smaller alternatives are also extremely impressive, as all of the raw talent of these artists are essentially condensed into one little tier. You’ll be shocked to see just how mind-blowingly ornate and well-crafted these delectable creations can be!

Soft sprinklings of sugar bring about mysterious chalky effect, but that’s the very quality that draws people in.

Fountains of Love (for Food!)

A good question to ask in regards to catering for your reception: how does one feed his or her guests and keep ’em entertained at the same time? Well, ponder no further! In addition to resolving the essential required qualities in question, food fountains are also sharable and come in unlimited supply (for a good while, at least!); and think of all the friendly interactions your guests could be having with one another while trying to figure out how to best use the apparatus? There are simply too many pros to not include one of these at your event!
