Here's a wedding cake trend to consider: Give your cake some serious edge by shifting all of the cake tiers to one side so that it makes a staircase design. The idea works with round or square tiers in pretty much any style you want — fondant cut-outs, sugar flowers and hand-painted details are all fair game. Take a look!
