Our Favorite Wedding Cakes From 2020


2020 wasn’t very sweet, was it? Fortunately, love wasn’t cancelled and there were still plenty of meaningful celebrations going on! And where there is a celebration, there is…cake!

Aside from all those cute little exchanges throughout the wedding day, cake cutting + eating is by far the sweetest part of the reception. Because 2020 was filled with intimate weddings and micro celebrations, we were fortunate enough to see lots of single and two-tier cakes. And, if you didn’t already know, modern desserts are true works of art, like the masterpiece above from LiMa Cakes! From sugar work to rice paper textures and the coolest designs in between, these take the cake for 2020:
