What's a Stacked Wedding Cake? A Tiered Cake?
A stacked wedding cake is made up of layers that sit directly on top of one another. To keep the layers from sinking in, little poles or separators are pushed into each one. Layers can be stacked straight up or even asymmetrically. This style has become increasingly popular in comparison to the traditional tiered design.
A tiered wedding cake also gives a multilayered effect. However, each tier is separated and supported by pillars. Unlike the separators used in a stacked cake, these pillars are several inches high and clearly visible. The open space between each tier allows for flowers to be placed in between. Decor can also be wrapped around the columns themselves.
