Serving multiple cakes at your reception is a surefire way to satisfy the sweet tooth of each and every guest (plus the spreads are just so pretty!). Deconstruct the classic tiered cake and you can offer a choice of cake flavors. Stay sophisticated by sticking to one cake style (like all fondant cakes with sugar flower toppers), or make it eclectic by mixing and matching (try two buttercream cakes with and one naked cake). A tip: For the best-looking display, arrange smaller cakes on stands at various heights. See how these cake tables maintain a tempting display with multiple sweets in the mix.
Use the same cake stand and frosting, but mix up the placement of the cake toppers.
