A staircase cake is similar to a traditional wedding cake as it is made up of tiers. However, instead of sitting centrally the tiers sit off center to create a staircase affect. This style of cake is perfect for couples who want a traditional cake with a twist and can be designed to suit all different types of wedding themes. Here are 8 of our favourite staircase cakes!
This stunning lilac and pink hand painted cake is perfect for a couple who appreciates art. The soft and natural floral design and fake flowers soften the angular edges of the four square tiers to create a striking cake design.
This simple yet elegant white cake as tastefully decorated in delicate lace flowers and embellished with tiny gold dragees. An effortlessly sophisticated cake that suits a classic themed wedding.
For the couple who wants a cake that’s simple but bold, opt for a bright colour with vibrant sugar flowers, like this show stopping eyelet inspired design!
Don’t be afraid to mix and match the colours of the tiers to create a unique look. The off the center design of the cake makes the ‘stairs’ on the cake a perfect place to create a striking floral display.
We love the different textures of the tiers on this square, three tiered staircase cake. Completed with a single, stunning flower cake topper, this elaborate design has been kept to one colour to ensure it looks nothing but classy.
The smooth chocolate base layer, works in perfect contrast with the purple ombre frills which creeps up the the white top layer. Topped with a delicate flower this cake is a piece of art!
The frills on this circular, three tier staircase cake is super pretty and feminine and reminds us of a wedding dress! A perfect design for a couple who have a soft and romantic feel to their wedding day.
The bold red rose and the almost invisible text which covers two of the three tiers makes us think of Romeo and Juliet! The plain middle tier sits at half the depth of the other two tiers creating individuality to a classic design.
Don’t forget to top off your staircase wedding cake with a fabulous cake topper. Here are a few of our favourite which would work wonderfully on the stairs of your cake!
