Although we love a good and delicious wedding cake, if you’re looking for a less traditional option for your big day, look no further! You don’t have to have vanilla sponge and buttercream to call it a ‘wedding cake’ or be able to cut into it to make it official.
Here are our favorite wedding cake alternatives:
- A donut tower: This is such a unique way to kick off the dessert part of the day, and a great idea for a breakfast or brunch wedding. Mix and match with different flavors and icings, or keep it unified with one choice. You can even stick a little topper into the top of the tower to add some more pizazz like this couple (below left).
- A uniquely flavored cake tower: From rum cakes to hummingbird cakes, find or DIY a quirky tower to hold them, and watch your guests marvel at the height, taste and colors you choose (below centre).
- Cheesy tiers: This is a firm favorite amongst many couples, especially those where neither person has a big sweet tooth. Pile your favorite wheels of cheese on top of each other and adorn with fresh figs and grapes (below right).
