When you're looking for creative and imaginative wedding cake ideas, the latest trends on Instagram and Pinterest are a good place to start.

Floating tiers are a 2020 wedding cake trend that looks set to stay beyond this year. Masterfully executed, this type of wedding cake typically features three or more tiers with the middle tier appearing to float without any assistance. 

Acrylic boxes filled or unfilled, geometric shapes or supporting pillars in disguise can all be used to achieve the desired effect. With a variety of design options on offer, each cake concept can be considered and decorated with both your wedding theme and colour scheme in mind.  

Take a look at these wedding cakes with floating tiers and be inspired to captivate your wedding guests with a similar mind-boggling masterpiece.
