Who doesn’t love a good piece of cake? But here are some great alternatives to Wedding cake
You love cake right? But not everyone does. In fact, I’ve been working with the coolest bride ever, and she’s very non traditional. Which is great because a wedding is all about you and she’s looking to have a fun o’ party. So I wasn’t surprised when she asked for some ideas on alternatives to a wedding cake.
This got me thinking who else out there doesn’t like cake? I took the question to Instagram and I received many great responses, so I thought I share with you. Keep in mind your mother-n-law may ask “where’s the cake”, but the great thing is, you can point to the really cool displays of…… because your Wedding Day is a reflection of you.
Let’s kick it off with my brides favorite option
Cookies, Cookies, Cookies….
I’m talking about a killer Cookie tower stacked in tiers…you might be able to fool your grandparents too. Another cool option is the classic alternative to a birthday cake, Cookie Cake. You can place them on several cake tiers add flowers and voilà….a beautiful cookie display.
One trend I’m seeing a lot this year are Donut boards. So why not stack them up layer by layer to create the cake of your dreams. My son would Say what! Donut cake please mama please.
Have you ever heard of Noting Bundt Cakes? My god, last year I was introduced to them. If you’re not a fan of cake but love bundt cake, then you’ve got to go with this alternative. The icing alone is something to drool over.
Tower of chocolate love
For those who enjoy chocolate, have you ever thought about creating a tower of bon bons, kisses, even truffles to make cake of deliciousness. I know I’ll be doing this for my next birthday party!
This perfect for those who always seem to order the New York Style cheese cake every time you see it on the menu.
I scree you screen we all scream ice cream
One of the greatest recommendations I heard about was an ice cream sundae bar. I mean your favorite candy toppings, whipped cream and a cherry. I’m in!
Pie’s are not just for the holidays
Over the summer I had bride who hated cake but had a weakness for pies. Delicious pies of Blueberry, cherry, pumpkin and pecan. It was so nice to enjoy a slice when not being stuffed by turkey.
Something I’d never thought of outside from Sunday brunch was a stack of pancakes. Add some delicious filling between layers and your guest will swoon over how tasty breakfast for desert can be.
I’m sorry but walking into a reception and seeing all your favorite deserts from your local bakery in one place…. Can I say sugar coma…. Whoopie pies, cream puffs, eclairs, cannoli’s oh my. I definitely died and went to heaven.
Lastly the old fashion pound cake. Top it with some fresh berries & whipped cream and you have the perfect summer cake treat.
My god I think I’m in a sugar comma now. Everything sounds so good. Remember this is your day, it’s OK to be different and I hope these gave you some great alternatives.
