This cake consists of three tiers in differing sizes, made of iced, heart shaped sponges. It’s a great compromise if you still want a more traditional tiered wedding cake, but you love the cute heart shapes.

How to Get a Heart-Shaped Cake?

If you want a heart shaped wedding cake, you have two options. You could speak to a wedding cake maker and ask if they create heart shaped cakes - the list above is a good place to start! Or you could invest in some heart shaped cake tins and get baking - but be warned, it's not an easy task to make a wedding cake. 

If you're not particularly skilled at home baking and cake decoration, we'd always recommended enlisting a professional - especially for something as important as a wedding.

Are Heart-Shaped Cakes Trending?

Heart shaped cakes - for weddings and other occasions - are definitely on trend right now. After Pinterest named heart shaped cakes as a rising search in their Pinterest Predicts report, we've definitely noticed an increase in couples opting for heart shaped bakes.

It's easy to see why they're so popular - they're the perfect mix of kitsch and cute!

How Many Do Heart Shaped Cakes Serve?

How many people you can serve with a heart shaped wedding cake will depend entirely on how big your cake is! We'd recommend speaking to your baker about the number of guests you need to serve - and you can always go slightly under with your numbers, as not everyone will eat the cake - and they'll advise you on how big your heart shaped cake needs to be.

You can go for a multi-tiered heart shaped wedding cake if you need to serve more people, or another option for those who love the mini cake look, is to have a small cake to display and cut into, and a larger sheet cake out the back for the venue team to serve. No one will ever know!
