We LOVE everything about wedding cake, especially cakes with the wow factor! Suspended weddings cakes definitely have that and they’re sure to get all your guests talking. If you’ve not yet heard about these amazing hanging wedding cakes, you’re in for a treat right now. Take a look because these delicious designs are sure to make your mouth water.
So, what is a hanging wedding cake? Well, quite simply, the cake is suspended rather than sitting on a traditional cake table. These designs are real centrepieces and you can, of course, create a cake that totally works with your wedding theme. From rustic to luxe and everything in between, here are our favourite suspended wedding cakes and they’re definite showstoppers!
Flowers always make a wedding cake look fabulous and when that cake’s suspended, the effect is doubled. A simple three-tier design is taken to a whole new level here.

Your cake doesn’t have to be huge. A simple one-tier with golden icing, surrounded by stunning flowers, is a wonderful minimalistic design that will still make a huge impact.

For a brilliantly bohemian take on this trend, use macramé additions to a simple wooden base. The hanging succulents around the cake are a great finishing touch.

Wooden structures are used a lot in weddings now, usually to create cool backdrops. Instead, use one to support your cake. Then, keep it natural with feathers, grasses and succulents for decoration.

A hanging wedding cake can still work with a complex design if it sits on a really simple support. Decide whether your cake or the structure will be the focal point and work on your design from that point.

Bring your cake outside and make it part of the gorgeous gardens at your venue by surrounding it with flowers. If you go for this, why not cut your cake during your drinks reception?

Another gorgeous ‘upside down’ suspended cake which works brilliantly in a rustic setting. The addition of the greenery on the support just softens the look of the metal structure.
