#5 A Unique Shape

Finally, your wedding cake doesn’t need to be round in shape and in many different layers. If you are looking for something a little bit different then you can use the shape of the cake as the decorative element.
 
 
 
 
 
 

For example, at the moment different geometrical shapes are a great idea. Go for a rectangular cake and play with your imagination. Single tier cakes are also a trendy idea right now.
