10 simple wedding cakes that caught our attention

Time to plan your wedding cake? Wedding cakes don’t have to be elaborate or 10+ tiers (although we love all types of wedding cake, to be honest). If you’re looking for some simple wedding cake inspo, then we’ve rounded up some stunning simple wedding cakes that caught our eye and aren’t dripping with decoration. Please note that they were still crafted by an expert, however, and require skills to nail.

This three-tiered orchid adorned beauty:

Delicately dressed with phalaenopsis orchids, this fondant decorated three-tiered cake by Something About Cake isn’t OTT but is still absolutely stunning. Three tiers is a popular option for weddings. Many couples choose a different flavour for each tier, with white chocolate, chocolate and caramel mud being the top choices.
