17 Romantic 3-Tier Wedding Cakes


These gorgeous cakes are almost too beautiful to cut – but not quite!

Sometimes the classics are the best, and that can go for cakes and sweet treats just as much as decor and music!

There’s nothing quite as eye-catching as a beautiful cake with intricate floral touches and the three-tier wedding cake is still hugely popular for a reason.

Cake traditions date back to ancient Roman times when the groom would break a loaf of bread over his bride’s head for good luck, but the modern version is a lot more palatable!

And everyone loves that Instagram-worthy moment when they gather round to see the bride and groom join hands to cut their wedding cake – a slice of cheese just isn’t the same!

So go for chocolate truffle, elderflower and gin, lemon and rosemary – the possibilities are endless!
