A Little Wedding Cake

I've been getting more calls and emails from brides asking if I do small wedding cakes. Sure, why not?

The issue is how small do you mean...For 20 guests you can do two tiers, for 30-40 you can still do three, but they'll be smaller in diameter.

This cake was a smaller one. Height-wise it was the same as any other three-tiered cake, but the diameters of the tiers were 4"-6"-8". This size, not including the top tier (in case you want to keep that for yourself) will serve 30-36 people.

For 40-50 guests you can do a 5-7-9" combination.

So yes, there are options for smaller weddings. You don't have to settle for a single tier, and you can still have a cake that looks like a wedding cake.

Such a beautiful cake, and you make a very good point; small weddings can still have beautiful tiered cakes.

This is such a pretty cake, Kara, and I love your point. I think petite cakes are adorable, and I would much rather see one than a cake with a false layer or two.
