Can we have a dessert table and a large cake?
Of course, this is such a popular option. Many of couples choose to have 2 or 3 tiered cake as a central display cake and then dessert items placed around this on different height cake stands and plates.
However, this is your display, so you we could easily design a display with a 4 or 5 tiered, a single tiered cake or even a cheese stack.
Can we have more than one large cake?
This is perfect possible and would look stunning.
As an idea, you could have a beautiful 3 tiered cake, surrounded by two small 2 tiered cakes, three single tiered cakes and six dessert different dessert item choices. This would be a showstopping display.
