Why Small Wedding Cakes Are Now Trending

In the enchanting world of weddings, where grandeur often takes the spotlight, there’s a sweet, understated trend that’s stealing hearts – small wedding cakes. As more couples embrace intimate ceremonies and personalized touches, these mini marvels of confectionary art are becoming a big hit.

Why Small Cakes?

Combining Faux and Real Wedding Cakes

Some couples are now opting for a blend of illusion and reality. They’re choosing grand, faux wedding cakes for display and photo opportunities, while having a smaller, real cake for the actual eating. This approach allows them to bask in the glory of a magnificent multi-tiered cake without compomising on the practicality and intimacy of a small cake.
