The best things don’t always come in the biggest packages. And more and more soonlyweds are catching on to this as they swap towering wedding cakes for smaller confections. Although small wedding cakes might seem like a poor idea for sharing with guests, the convenience of not wasting time cutting the cake and providing alternate desserts instead — such as donuts, cupcakes, pastries, etc. — is actually better for everyone! So as we prepare to see fewer large tiered cakes, today we’re celebrating the small cakes that prove size doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style.
