Tiered, tiny or be­spoke; these cakes make a real style state­ment

Be it a be­spoke stun­ner or a sim­ple sin­gle-tier cake, there is some­thing re­ally mag­i­cal about se­lect­ing your ed­i­ble cen­tre­piece. To help you make your de­ci­sion, we’ve cho­sen a few dreamy cakes that are sure to in­spire.

Some­times less is more, so con­sider a se­lec­tion of sin­gle-tier cakes on a dessert ta­ble in­stead of just one big state­ment cake. If you’re hav­ing a day­time wed­ding dur­ing the warmer months, avoid cakes iced with ganache or del­i­cate cho­co­late de­tails, which may melt.
