Stunning two-tier wedding cakes are super popular Down Under and why not? These cakes, created by Sweet Bakes in Melbourne, Australia are a great example of how you can get the same wow factor that you'd typically see with multi-tier cakes in as little as two tiers. While there are a million things to consider when thinking cake, spend more than just a minute thinking about the aesthetics. Think about its shape. Number of tiers. Things like, color and finish. Do you want something matte? Glossy? Satin? What about luster? I am enamored by these cakes because it allows brides to go extra fabulous without the high cost of all those tiers. I also love the degree of whimsy you can achieve with both the right vision and the right baker. On a side note, did you notice the cake pedestals in these pictures? To. Die. For!
