Just like this cake on one of our styled shoots, it was placed on two barrels. The barrels were then designed with our silk table runners and used a gorgeous gold cake stand to make everything perfect.

Sometimes the tiniest details make a big difference! There has been a trend nowadays on using small wedding cake tables instead of those grand ones that we usually see in receptions. The logic behind the small tables is because it will emphasize and make the wedding cake look larger.
