15 Single Serve Mini Wedding Cakes

We love the drama of a big multi-tier wedding cake, but single-serve wedding cakes can make for an equally gasp-worthy display! If you aren’t familiar, single-serve means that your guests each receive their very own miniature wedding cake, rather than a slice of a larger cake, and work really well for smaller weddings. These delicate delights are works of art in their own right, so display them individually, or arrange them in tiers to look like a regular wedding cake shape. Not only do personal mini wedding cakes make for a unique way to serve dessert, but you can also box them up to take home as wedding favours. Whether choose these in lieu of a larger wedding cake, or as well as one, we’ve got lots of gorgeous single serve wedding cake inspiration below!

What to Know Before Choosing Mini Cakes

  • The beauty of mini-cakes is that they can be made in a variety of flavours – not just one!
  • Mini cakes or single serve wedding cakes can be a quite costly option as they are all individually made and decorated. A more cost-effective alternative are cupcakes.
  • Mini cakes are a great option for a smaller guest list as it’s a more achievable option, budget-wise.
  • If you have a larger cake as well, serve your mini cakes as dessert or box them up as favours to save on cost.
