Nothing makes a dessert table more impressive than height. Tall desserts are the stuff of birthday and tea party fantasies, including towering trifles, tiered pavlovas, towering cupcake stands, and croquembouches. And now, tall cakes have joined the list. These are different from two-tier or three-tier cakes because the cake has only one tier, but the height is almost equal to multi-layer cakes. A tall cake is at least 7 to 10 inches tall, adding so much dimension to the cake.
Tall Cake Themes
Tall cakes are beautiful and elegant. So, they are well suited for anniversaries, weddings, and anniversary parties. They are mostly in pastel colours such as pink, sky blue, lavender and coral. If the theme of your party is in these colours, the cake will complement them well.
Apart from anniversaries and weddings, tall cakes can also be booked for baby showers and birthdays. The cakes scream cuteness, and we guarantee that your guests will be awed by the tall surprise. You must be worried about how to cut it, but do not be. We will send a special cake knife and cutting instructions with it.

These cakes are available in the usual favours and exclusive flavours. Though some of the cakes go well with the classic flavours of chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla-like our tall shimmer cake. It is a strawberry flavour cake with pink and silver shimmers and pink frosting. The glitter is tasteless, and the cake tastes like strawberry cake. However, these are customized and can also be made eggless.

It is quite evident that tall cakes are heavy and cannot be made in 500 gms. The minimum quantity of a tall cake is 1 kg, and the taller cakes might even be 2-3 kg in weight. So, the price of the tall cake will depend on its height. A normal cake is 3-4 inches tall, whereas a tall cake is 7-10 inches in height.

The price also varies according to the designs. Many are available for 900 INR, whereas some options cost 3000 INR.
