You’ve handpicked the linens, written personal vows, created the perfect party playlist, and picked out the perfect wedding gown. So why is it that when it comes to your wedding cake, you stay with traditional? While we believe that wedding cakes will be around for many years to come, why settle for a traditional cake when there are so many options?! Alternative wedding cakes are becoming a trend, and we are so excited! We’ve provided you with a few ideas to make your sugar buzzworthy dessert unforgettable.
Pies are not just for holiday gatherings anymore! Pies have been a delicious addition to wedding receptions in the past few years and there’s no sign of slowing down. You can create individual mini pies for your guests, have a pie at each table (which cuts down time standing in line). For a more rustic feel, encourage some fantastic bakers in your family to bake various flavors to give your guests variety.
Pancakes or Waffles
Ever since the invention of Brinner (Breakfast for Dinner), couples have been trying to incorporate breakfast food items into their wedding reception! We love the idea of pancakes or waffles in the shape of a cake! This is perfect for a brunch or early afternoon Sunday wedding and pairs great with some orange juice or Mimosas!
From a wall to a tower, Donuts are some of our favorites as an alternative wedding cake! Over the past few years, donuts have been giving traditional wedding cakes a run for their money. And as an added bonus, many bakery shops now create customizable toppings to give donuts an even more delicious edge.
We like to think of cupcakes as the wedding cakes fun, younger sister! Cupcakes have been around for the past decade, and for good reason! If a bride is on a budget or simply doesn’t much of a sweet tooth, cupcakes are the perfect solution! You can give your guests more flavor choices without having to pay for the extra tier.
