Separated Tier Wedding Cakes

 

Separated tier wedding cakes refer to cakes that sit individually on their own stand, and are not necessarily above or below one another. In this way, the wedding cake takes on a “deconstructed” appearance. There may be several reasons to favor this approach when it comes to your wedding cake. First, it’s different. Eight out of ten weddings that guests attend will have a stacked or tiered cake, and the ninth will have cupcakes! Separating your tiers, either on individual cake stands or a special cake stand provided by the bakery, will make a statement and will set your reception apart. Another reason to consider separated cake tiers is the size of the individual cakes. Perhaps you’d like similarly sized layers in different flavors. The approach permits you to have different layers that can all be the same size. Or perhaps you would like to have different designs or colors for each cake, unified by a single design element. This approach would permit you to have different “cakes,” potentially for the same price as a stacked or tiered cake. If individuality is important to you, if you’d like your affair to be remembered for being “different,” consider the approach of the separated tier wedding cake.

Vintage Wedding Cake

bunting cake

As we cling to the last days of summer I wanted to showcase this cake because it reminds of an old fashioned summer fair.

This gorgeous two-tier wedding cake was created by our friends at Hockleys Cakes and they described it as typical English afternoon tea cake.

I love the elegant simplicity of the cake. The smooth white icing accented on each tier with small pearls lends an air of sophistication to the cake. The tiers are separated by white columns. Read More

Woodland Wedding Cake

Novelty

I am going to go out on a limb here and say that spring really is here to stay as we inch closer to April.

With that in mind, I wanted to find a wedding cake that was all about nature and spring-like things. I think this “woodland” wedding cake is that cake.

Our friends at Hockleys Cakes created this one-of-a-kind wedding cake for a bride and groom who “love everything woodland.” I am in awe just looking at this cake and taking in all the incredible details.

The cake itself features three tiers – each a different flavor. I love wedding cakes that have a different flavor in each tier, so in my book this cake is already awesome. Read More

Primrose Wedding Cake

The weather outside might be frightful, but this cake is so delightful.

Yes, we might have just “celebrated” the first full day of winter, but that just means that we have a mere 86 days until the first day of spring, so I think right now is the perfect time to start daydreaming about lovely springy flowers.

And so, I give you the primrose wedding cake.

This gorgeous four-tier cake looks like it has a garden of flowers blooming around each tier. Read More

Flashback Friday: Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson’s Wedding Cake

prince-andrew-435

This week’s flashback cake takes us all the way back to July 23, 1986 when Prince Andrew married Sarah Ferguson, who became known as Her Royal Highness The Duchess of York, Countess of Inverness, Baroness of Killyleagh, and Princess of the United Kingdom.

Or we can just call her ‘Fergie’ like everyone else does.

I always liked this royal couple – they seemed a bit more down to earth than Charles and Diana, sort of like an old school William and Catherine – and I was a bit sad when they divorced in 1996.

But maybe you’ve heard the news this week that Prince Andrew and Fergie are possibly reuniting and rekindling their romance! Read More
