Single-layer, minimalist cakes have been gaining a lot of attention because of their sleek and aesthetic designs, but what makes them even more eye-catching is the limitless possibilities for decorations, flavors, and colors. Bakers make use of beautiful lettering, illustrations, and other edible pieces of decor to create cakes that are almost too pretty to eat! The neat and polished look of these cakes make them a great option for weddings, especially intimate ones, because of their subtle elegance and novelty. While we all love the magnificence of multi-tier wedding cakes, these South Korean-inspired minimalist cakes are a timely option for wedding nowadays. If you are looking for a customized single-layer cake for your special day, do check out these amazing creations by talented local bakers!
1. Baked by Trimy
Just one word makes the message here so heartwarming! You’ll want to stare at that lettering all day. Including the wedding date as part of the dedication makes the cake design even more meaningful.

Illustrations on wedding cakes don’t always have to be so formal, they can also be adorable and quirky! You can even ask your baker to create images that resemble the two of you and incorporate phrases that hold meaning to the both of you.
3. Cafie Art + Bakery
Minimalist cakes don’t always have to be white. Going for pastel colors, like this cake with blush frosting, will add to the uniqueness of your cake. Why not keep in theme and match the color of your cake to your wedding motif?

Spotify cakes are also trending and this anniversary cake is a great peg! This design is also fun and interactive. You can scan the code (written in frosting) and it will lead your guests to your playlist. This is a creative way to compile your favorite songs and share them with your friends and family.
These Korean style minimalist cakes are also suitable for engagement celebrations. We love the quirky design on this cake with the bride’s soon-to-be surname. This is also something you can consider as the design on your wedding cake. You can put your new family name or even your monogram.
Here’s another idea for illustrations on your wedding cake! You can send your baker photos from your engagement shoot and have them turn your image into a work of buttercream art. Just like this lovely cake, you can also add fine details like the color of your bouquet for an extra pop!
A semi-naked cake with a minimalist touch is also a beautiful choice! You usually see this kind of cake in rustic or boho weddings, but even if you don’t have a particular theme in mind, you won’t go wrong with this look.
Does this phrase look familiar? If you know the song Araw-Araw by Ben & Ben, then these lyrics will surely ring a bell. This design gives you inspiration to be even more creative with your wedding cake. Go for bolder colors and think of significant lines like your favorite song lyrics as the dedication!

Get some inspiration from this bridal shower cake with its vibrant hues of blue and witty one-liner! Some phrases you can use for your wedding cake would be “just married,” “I do,” or a simple “ily.” Be creative and add some humor!
Cute bride and groom toppers is always a good idea! It does not get any more personalized than having a topper made resembling the happy couple. You can match the hair color and the outfits to your own and strike the exact same pose in front of your cake on the big day!
